Feeling in need of a confidence boost (or maybe a kick!)
Not sure where to put this but it is kind of horse related.
Sorry if this is a really long rant...
It was really sunny today, still chilly but still. It made me excited for the summer. I have a lot of mixed emotions lately and feel really down, I'm not going to go into these things but I'm moving house, got issues with college, need to get a new job ect...
Anyway :) I've loaned/leased my horse now for a year and I'm feeling a little better established at the yard. My riding is so much better and I'm used to the horse now...But...I'm one of those people who keeps themselves to themselves, I never really got to know many people - I only really speak to my instructor, the person that does the liveries and the yard manager. :/
I have 3 other people that share the tack room with me, and they all seem really close, I'm just really shy and the most I've ever said to them has been like "Can I borrow some hay?" and stuff like that. So many times I've wanted to ask to ride with them but I stumble over my words...I don't know why but I worry about asking them, I don't think they dislike me, one of them even added me on facebook so they can't dislike me that much lol
Well, here's the thing...there are miles and miles of bridle ways out the back of our yard, loads, and I really want to go hacking out. I didn't get to hack out at all last summer and I really wanted to, and I feel like I should get some confidence up to ask if I can go for a hack with the other people at the yard. I've only ever been out on those bridle ways once, that was in my introduction week where I tried out the horse to see if we were suited ect, the owner took me out on the bridle ways just to try them out :)
I guess what I want is the confidence to just up and ask them if they want to go for a hack out but I feel like I'd be putting them in an awkward situation...like if they don't want to they might feel like they have to say yes...just as a pity hack :/ How do I approach this :/
(You might have noticed I have dreadful confidence issues lol)
