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!

dpends on your personality, if your the type of person who feel the need to impress others goes normal, having another horse in the school helped me anyway, cos i felt that i needed to prove io copuld ride, so jumped, or summit like that, buit if your not that type  the go private, so the instructor can concentrate on you and coach you through every minute. though u were getting a horse a coupole of weeks ago?

there is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man

have a group lesson on a really quiet pony, and if they say no to a quiet pony, just explain why you would like one. hope your confidence builds!:)

I would take a private lesson on a very quiet pony so you can take your time and be one on one with the instructor. That way if it takes longer with the jumping you won't be holding anyone else back, and you trainer can focus just on you and help you with your confidence. Good Luck!

Personally if I were you I would ask for a private lesson on the flat to build up confidence. Explain what has happened and ask for a quiet, reliable horse. Go back to jumping when you feel confident once again. Good luck!

Re: Help me please.

personally i dont like group lessons, i think over 2 people and u just dont get the help to warrent payng 4 it!!thats why i used 2 just join in group lesson on naughty ponies, i was getting the leson 4 free so it didnt matter how little attention i got!!how about a semi private with 1 other person?

 

i would deffo move stables tho, if they wont listen 2 u when your frightened, are they raelly gonna listen if u hurt yourself?or if your in real danger or trouble?its not worth the risk!!on a new yard go 4 a private 4 your 1st lesson, then they can asses u and place u in an appropriate lesson 4 your ability
