Hello everyone. I live in Odessa Texas and just bought a horse so I could go trail riding after 15 years of not owning a horse. I rode for years from age 14 to 25 and loved every second. I have been dreaming of the good ole days and finally just bought a beautiful Snowflake Appaloosa mare so I could start trail riding again and I have a problem I have never encountered before and I don't know why! I am scared, anxious, nervous to get on her and ride! WTH? I just do not understand why I am feeling this way. I was so filled with excitement to get a horse again and now that I have her, I am too scared to ride her. Anyone ever have this happen before? I don't know what to do lol. I have no one to ride with, I think that is part of the problem. I think I am scared of the what if something happens and I get hurt and I am all alone possibility. I just don't know what to do lol. It is very embarrassing! There is no one close to me who rides. All of my friends and family who ride have moved away so it is just me.
