I had my first lesson after the fall today, and I was SUUUUPER nervous, so much so, that I wanted to dismount only 15mins into my lesson. However, I kept my cool and MADE myself stay on the full hour. I was really nervous though, and now I really need to find some ways to calm down, or maybe I will have to sit on the side lines in the future. :(
Im a nervous, anxious person as it is, so falling, and then trying to get back into the saddle is a little nerve wracking for me.
Any tips to help ease my nerves a bit? Im not giving up on riding, in fact, I have another lesson set up for Monday, but I want to be relaxed enough to enjoy myself.
