Well, I ended up selling my mare after she started making spooking and tanking off into an art form. It was hard to do, but she is now with a rider far more suited to her. I have not ridden in three months, haven't even been near a horse
I am looking into taking lessons to rebuild my confidence. I will be leaving it for at least a year before I buy my new horse. Anyone have any tips on spotting a great instructor?
