I feel COMPLETELY unsafe being with my horse in an arena, on the trail or in the pasture without my mom there, well not just my mom I mean without anyone there. I just CAN'T do it alone. I am afraid to work my horse without her there and I have no idea why. At my old barn I used to ride with my horse all by myself all day long, I actually hated sharing the barn with others. However since we switched barns every time I'm alone with my horse I'm uncomfortable and I don't want to ride, and I don't feel comfortable enough to do it. Nothing bad has happened at all, and every time we ride they are fine rides but I feel like I need someone watching in order to be safe and I never needed this before and I have no idea what triggered it. It stinks, I refuse to go out and see him without company and it is hindering on my time with him but I can't stomach over the feeling I have when there is no one there to help me in case something goes wrong. At the old barn the situation was the same, the BM was just up the hill and only a shout away with someone always home that could help but ah I don't know what to do.
Does anyone else feel like this? If so, how did you deal with it? How SHOULD I deal with this? What can I do to help myself?
