So, I've been taking lessons for the past 4 months I think its been? My instructor and I have been working on walking, trotting, lunging and just a touch of canter work. She's mentioned numerous times about taking me to compete in a very low level competition. Only equitation I would imagine! I'm not sure how I feel about this. I have horrible stage fright, I hate large groups of people, its just not my thing. I kind of what to have the experience of showing but I'm really not sure I actually want to show.
The only reason I'm taking lessons is to become more confident of a rider for when I get a horse of my own again. I've learned a LOT and I'm sooo much more confident than I was when I first started but I'm still not to the point of where I think I would be comfortable with my experience (what little I have) at a show.
Anyone else have this problem?
I'm kind of worried that if I do decide to go to a show, that I'll freeze up or blank when I get there. =/
