My instructor and I have been noticing a lot of problems with nervousness and confidence when I ride. A couple years ago I loved horses just as much, I was never afraid of anything. I'm fine on the ground with a horse but I know when I have something I can't handle, when that happens I have even more nerve problems. I want to ask my therapist for help with this too.
What sucks the most is I want to be able to be around other people's horses and work with them, and be comfortable
but I feel like I can't because I freak out. A couple years ago I just didn't get scared, put me on a horse. I see my confidence faltering and my anxiety raging in several areas. Im in constant limbo, like a teeter totter.
I need to fix this problem.
