.................... I'M BACK!!!!!!!!

I had such a great lesson today. Fritzy was testing me the whole time, because the last lesson, I kind of let him do what ever he wanted, so he assumed that it was still 'Fritzy does what ever he wants' day today. Aside from correcting him almost constantly, we trotted almost the whole time, and I couldn't have felt more at ease in the saddle.

YAY ME!!!!

Congratulations!!! See we knew you would be ok
I've been in your shoes believe me. Getting back on after a fall is very brave especially a bad one. I had planned on taking some confidence building lessons after my last one but the best thing I did was just DO IT! get on and ride as much as possible is the best cure. I skipped the lessons and I'm almost back to were I was pre-fall. And that was back in November

Thats awesome Vida!!!

I thought about it, and came to this conclusion:

After my bad car accident, it took me like a wk before I would get back behind the wheel, but I had to do it either way, it had to be done. My first time behind the wheel, I didn't think anything about it, I just did it, and have been fine ever since... well.. ALMOST..

I see that as getting back on the horse. Just suck it up, and do it!!! I did great today, I am super proud of myself.

Thanks for all of the great support guys (hugs)
