My instructor on the other hand took my fall really hard. I was the first person who had fallen off under her instruction and had to be sent to the hospital. She was really nervous about me getting back on more than I was. Anyways the past few months I feel like she is really holding me back and the communication between us has kind of died. I don't really enjoy the lessons anymore and I don't get the individual attention that I once got. (There are often others riding in the arena who are her other students working horses and she spends more time telling them something than giving me my lesson) She has pushed me back to trot polls and doing a single cross rail for the past month at a trot when before I was cantering over outside lines and doing simple course work. I have tried to talk to her about it and she just brushes me off. She has been really distant and it seems she is trying to push me out of the barn. I feed horses for her in exchange for lessons and she has never had a problem with me feeding and now she is picking everything I do cleaning and feeding wise to pieces. Everyone else at the barn has seem to distance themselves away from me too.
I am at a real loss at what to do. I don't know if I should wait it out and hope everything works out or start looking for a new place.
