you're just very willing to please-- nothing wrong with that. I've let horses out sweaty plenty of times-- its fine.. They don't 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 going to 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.
