Help me please.

I really need some help and Im really scared, well heres the story: I fell off a horse a few months ago and havent gone back horse riding since. I had fell of loads of times before and got straight back on but a few falls before my last one I couldnt get back on because off a really bad hip ingury,I told my instructor I had no confidence from then but she just kept putting me on maniac horses still so my confidence kept going and now im left with none jumping,I can walk trot and canter fine,its just jumping,I get really scared so I havent gone back the stables for months,and now im thinking to swap stables but im scared they will be the same or put me in a low lesson.Shall I ask for a begginers jumping lesson after telling them about my jumping experiances or shall I have private lessons? My mum says I should think about it,I can have either,private or normal,What do you think?

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question!

Re: Help me please.

can I ask a quick question?

because you keep saying that you're jumping 4 foot (like in future_vet's rate my pony thread), but here you're saying that you haven't jumped in ages. It's all a bit confusing...

 

Possibly have a private lesson and see if any of your friends will come stay while you have it? Because I personally hate it if I've payed to go to a crosscountry session or something, and one person in the group keeps holding everyone else back, and also if you go private then you'll not have to worry about being that person either.

quiet private lesson with a nice teacher, you can just book a one off at a different stables ? good luck hope you get your confidence back, but dont push it too fast if you dont want to, cos that might put you back even further. xxx

oh its ok, i lost my confidence on mine a while ago, had a terrible fall from bareback on solid ground and completely bruised all down one side, passed out, could barely walk lmao, but i just took painkillers and got back on the next day, not best idea as i was terrified, it was windy and there was noone around :S i just knew that i absolutely had to do it or i wouldnt get back on again for months.

hope you get your confidence back soon, when you manage to get over the thing thats scaring you it all just feels a million times better :)

xxx
