yay congratulations :)
prior to getting horses again this year, i hadnt ridden in almost 5 years. as soon as i got on it was like i had never stopped. everything came back straight away and it was as natural as ever and that was after 5 years.
if you want to ride faith, just start slow. you know yourself you can tell very quickly what the horse is like. if she is lunging well and what not, hop on her in the lunge ring or a confined area of that makes you feel better. if after a few minutes you feel that its not right, then hop off. you know your own limitations and if you are a good/solid rider, you shouldnt have any probs. just dont doubt yourself or she will know :)
good luck and let us know how everything goes :)
