OMG, you're in Talladega, AL!!! I live in St. Clair County!! I, too, have had some issues with getting back into riding after having a fall last year. I was pretty shook up, but, am now cautious about loping or cantering. However,
I found a wonderful trainer in Etowah County who is so easy and patient, and she has the funniest lesson horse. She will only let you work in an arena, will be glad to walk around with a lead line, and if you feel up to a canter, it will only be on a lunge line in a small circle. It's all about balance. You will just love her and her quarter horse because he is so funny. He is even afraid of the small jumps with flowers, lol. I think you will be able to build alot of confidence with her.
I fell in my home last month and twisted my ankle, so I have stopped lessons for now. I'm alot older than you and I don't bounce back as fast. But, she made me feel good just being able to ride at a walk and trot. She teaches english and western lessons, very reasonable.
Her name is Suzanne and she has Heart & Horse Riders or Horse & Heart Riders.
