Youre just very willing to please-- nothing wrong with that. Ive let horses out sweaty plenty of times-- its fine.. They dont need a rinse down every time anyway and sweaty hairs will just brush right out.
When i was younger i felt like i had to walk on eggshells when a certain person was around the barn, because she freaked out on me every time i moved basically.. i stopped going to her for advice and i quit asking her for her opinion since she couldnt take into concideration that i was new to horses and i was gonna make mistakes.. often.
Luckily for me my aunt worked at that barn too. I just started asking her for help when i needed it, and i regained my confidence back. She didnt flip her wig when i messed somethin up-- she stayed calm laughed and calmly corrected me by showing me the right way then having me do it for myself.
I would confide in the most understanding person at your barn-- or the one you feel most comfortable with.. even if it is the instructor. Don't ever be ashamed or afraid to ask any questions-- there is no dumb questions in the horse world.. you have to ask to know.
