This might not be the place...but, yesterday at Pony Club, my horse kicked up at a little 3 year old girl on her horse, with her mother standing beside here, and I have been shamed. I got yelled at for not telling him off good enough, as I tapped him with the crop and 'groweled' at him, but the instructor got mad. She got over it of course, because when I did a rider class thing, she said I was going good and complimenting and everything, and when I got back to the group, I felt embarassed, because of my horse and me. I felt hopeless, and have lost confidence now with going out riding with others. I said sorry to the girl and her mum, and they were fin and accepting, but I still feel horrible.
I don't know what kind of answer Im looking for, but some advice would be great...?
