God I am soooooo glad you guys mentioned this!!! I have been on horse my whole life I have ridden the nastiest little punks!not a problem but for some reason in the last year I all of a sudden dont trust even my own youngsters, WHY WHY WHY !!! I am training race horses FOR GOODNESS SAKE! for some reason until I really get to know them I get nervous, I thought of going to a sport psychologist, because NOTHING has happend. I thought well I am extremely safety concious, it comes with the job(critical care paramedic for 27 years)I see things that most people dont see as a danger! but this is rediculous, and yet I have a studdy 17h exracer that is my heart horse I love him I trust him 100% and most people are afraid of him I absolutly am not, the other day the vet was checking him and he was acting like a stud, the vet said he was going to drug him(had something in eyelid) I said no he will be fine, he just looked at me, I made him stop! he held still the vet said I cant believe this, I said he is the best horse, the vet asked do you ride him ? well yea of course he said I wanna see that kinda sarcasticly, I said ok give me a leg up, the vet is like no thats ok I said no iwant you to see him, so up i went just a halter and rode him back to his pasture. so see any of my others are fine but other peoples no, and I know it is just getting smarter with age, but this "thing" that I am feeling around some of these horse IS STUPID, and I dont know what to do, what do I do I AM DESPERATE FOR AN ANSWER AND HELP! let me know what you guys think.
