Building my confidence back
Not sure where to post this....
Does any know how I may be able to build my confidence back up??
I was thrown from an arabian mare not too long ago, I was riding her in the round pen and asked her for a canter - had never ridden this mare before- she cantered about 3 steps before she turned into a rodeo queen and almost threw me into the round pen gate :( Ever since then my confidece around horses is nothing like it used to be. I was working on building it up before I moved, but now I'm just back where I started....
Any time a horse acts up, get's nervous/scared, fighting with other horses, bolts ect....Even on the ground I get really really nervous, I'm afraid of getting trampled (Had that happen once...), kicked, bit, stepped on, anything like that. I know it's just going to take time, but what can I do to help???
