I am a new very green beginning horse owner, 7 months new. I have an almost 5 year old mare and a 20 ish year old cranky shetland pony gelding that I adopted. We have made a lot of progress in the time that I have had them. I was wondering if any new horse owners sometimes get apprehensive or have anxiety when working with their horses? Is this a normal feeling for beginners? I have a wonderful mentor that has been helping me learn the Parelli Level 1 training. I feel comfortable as long as this person is with me, but I get apprehensive when I practice alone. Is it my lack of confidence? Just wanted to know if any newbies like me felt the same way?
