  1. Horse Shows
    I am soon to compete in my first Highschool Equestrian meet of the year, and I am quite nervous. I competed last year, so I know what the meets are like, but I have been without a saddle for much of the year (poor fit and couldn't bring myself to ride my gelding in a saddle that was hurting him...

    So this weekend, im suppose to be taking my horse up to a womans house to ride her horse and see if she is interested in trade and so on.. {Want bored y'all with all those details that don't mean anything} So normally I wouldn't be nervous riding a "new" horse as I call it, but this mare is...
  3. Horse Shows
    I love showing! Although I don't do a ton of it, I enjoy all of the careful preparation, the excitement of going to a new place with my horse, and the satisfaction of a great ride. But what I don't love is the pre-class butterflies. I stress an worry a great deal as I prepare to ride. What...

  7. Show Jumping
    I have diagnosed anxiety and it seems to hit me really bad before jumping lessons. It's not even the jumping part that bothers me I don't think.

    I'm 18 and I've been riding for 5 years now and have gone to 4 different riding schools and have once a week lessons. The one I got to is amazing and I have the best instructor ever but that's not the problem. When I was a proper beginner and learning to ride the second riding school I went to...
