Re: how can i get my confidence back on a hack with my new pony after i had a accident on the road?
Hi, i had a fall off my pony a few years ago, i was out in company and the other horse spooked at horses running in a feild, they both went galloping off and my pony turned a 90o corner and i fell off so did the other rider.
After this is took me a long time to get my nerve back, i went out with a friend, who had a really nice safe reliable horse. And she made me talk and sing all the way round or when i got scared to take my mind off it and in the end i leant to trust him again.
I kept him as i knew it wasn't him, he spooked because the other horse spooked (he is now retited), but i think you did right, as it is not worth it if you are that scared.
The lesson hacks sound a good idea, good luck and your new pony sounds really good.
