I just took a really bad fall and ime afraid to bite that bullet lol I guess its time to get over it. Every fall is the same as the last I guess all you can do is all you can.
I'm sorry to hear of your fall, and I wish you the best of luck. It's just that when you're a trainer, you have to be aware of these things because you don't want an unhappy client - the horse world is tiny, and your name can get around quite quickly...
Maybe you should stick to finishing horses rather than starting them until you get your confidence back? I just know that if I sent my horse to a trainer, I would have some fairly high expectations and wouldn't be very happy if I was paying training and boarding to not get results.
Again, sorry if I was harsh, I apologize.
