Welcome to the forum, I'm from northeast PA, where about in pa are you? Good luck getting back into riding, I took a few years off riding and found my confidence wasn't what it was before I stopped, I think a lot of that had to do with age, I'm not nearly as brave as I was when I was 16 lol. Then I took a decent fall off my mare in July and its been tough finding my confidence yet again, Just keep with it and it will come back slowly.

Hello from NW Pennsylvania. Kind of nice seeing who is all from PA.

Don't let her frustrate you. A fear is a fear and if you push too hard you could make it worse.

If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.

Thanks for all the positive words from PA! I live in southern PA- york. Anyway I decided to take a few months off from riding. I told my instructor I no longer feel comfortable taking lessons from her and I don't. She doesnt understand like some of you said a fear is a fear. She seems to think Im not serious about riding. I do not think I would spend all this money and ALSO get back on a horse after my accident if I wasn't serious. So for right now I am just going to spend time with horses doing ground work ( which was never taught to me) at a friends farm that does horse psyco-therapy.
