Such a crap day , really dont feel like riding him again.

So today I rode dealer again , I rode him yesterday too and I feel like crap.
I couldnt even get him to trot properly , I rode him for about 20 minutes max and he had me in tears.
My younger sister can ride him so well , she had him jumping 1m course yesterday and I couldnt even jump a x pole properly. I just feel like im in her shadow , like she's the golden girl that everyones proud of and im the fat , ugly useless one that can't ride . I really don't feel like riding him again tbh
Sorry , just had to get that out

Don't give up, just takes time, patience & a good bit of determination. I can totally relate to the sister thing, my younger sister has always been a perfect size 0, even after having 2 children, it's disgusting. She was the golden child when we were younger, but because of that I gained a lot of grit and determination and a bit of an "I'm going to show you and make you eat crow" attitude. Because of that I am the one who now owns & runs the family farm and has a successful breeding & training operation.

Don't give up! When you go to ride next in your head choose your attitude, go in with no expectations & look for small successes, even if it's getting a few nice strides at the trot or he gives in to the smallest amount of pressure when asked, any simple little thing. Look for those little successes and they will eventually become one big success :)

I was so p.o-ed with him when he wouldnt listen to me that I booted him so hard and hacked him in the mouth but I felt so bad after because he is such a good horse but because I was getting mad he wasnt listening and then he wasnt listening so I got even madder!

I feel really bad now that I have calmed down and realised how hard I was being on him...

Don't be too hard on yourself. We all make mistakes and learn from them. That you realized your mistake is a success in itself because chances are you won't make the same one again. That alone will make you a more aware, better rider.

I'm usually a work through it kinda girl, but when he gets to that point or gets you to that point, do something else for a few minutes and give time for both of you to re-group. Horses can be utterly frustrating and it can be a challenge to not let them get the best of you sometimes. I ride a lot of youngsters and it doesn't always go how I'd like and I still catch myself getting worked up, when I get that way I drop my stirrups, relax and play drunk driver and just walk any and every which way until we both get our heads back in the game.

I used to feel the same way, but after 3 years of fighting with Romeo, we finally "flow" together, now my sister is going through the same thing with her pony Kodee, I think it is somewhat normal. Don't give up, keep trying!
