So I started riding from the ages of 8-13 and I loved it but stopped because I just grew out of it. I’m now 20 and have recently taken it back up, and have completely fallen in love with it again! However I am having a lot of trouble with cantering. I just get really uncomfortable and feel like I’m going to fall off even though the horse is incredibly tame, well trained and is without a doubt one of that safest horses at that particular riding school. When I was younger I was completely fine I have no idea what’s going on with me. I get so nervous beforehand and when I am cantering I actually hold on to the saddle for balance because I’m afraid I’m going to fall. When I was younger I never had that problem at all. How can I get more confident at it while also feeling safe while on the horse? I feel like 5 years of riding has been completely forgotten. I’m fine with jumping while trotting, but at the moment a jump in canter makes my stomach turn. How can I get over this and be the confident rider I used to be?
