ARGH whats wrong with me??

I have been able to do bridle's for ages. I've been around horses since I was 6, so as you can imagine, putting on a bridle, is as easy as eating breakfast for me, like it is for everyone else. But there's one horse at the stables that I can't put its bridle on. Its a standard bridle, the horse has not problams with haing a bridle put on, its just me, and its really irritating. The girls down there Are like...WHAT how rubbish is she? I just can't do it and its sooo embarresing. Does anyone else find this? I think its just me though

You don't really state what the problem is hun...can you reach his head ok? Are people watching you when around this horse and it's making you feel uncomfortable? Ignore these stupid girls. People can be so cruel. X

Yes, I agree with Marian, If it has gone wrong a few times you may just be lacking in a bit of confidence, especially if people are watching you ! See if you can tie him up somewhere quiet or inside his stable and allow yourself plenty of time, you know you can do it, so ignore everyone else and you'll be fine. We all go through challenging times but don't worry it won't last !!

Re: ARGH whats wrong with me??

dont worry a horse i ride at the yard sometimes he thinks its funny to keep his mouth shut for as long as possible so i cant get the bit in, and then i asked my friend to help me and he just opened it for her straight away!! when i did work experience at a competition yard, this fallabella stallion dragged me all over the place in front of the owner n he wouldnt let me put a head collar on and she walked in n he just let her slip it straight on haha

 

it can be embarrasing but try to make a joke out of it too, like when they go "haha i cant believe you cant do it! "go "oh yeah same maybe you'd like to show me?" and smile because they'll be like woaah why isnt she getting upset by my comments. its just what nasty biaaatches are like and they'll be really taken back by how u react if u stay happy :)

im really sorry but i think im going to have to be a bit blunt here... get over it. they are clearly sad people with nothing better to do than worry what you are doing. i compete at a reasonable level on a regular basis and have had some good results from it too... yet it took me a whole month to get my horse's bridle on without being launced into space arms ripped from sockets etc etc......

its fine... horses will be horses and will most definately take advantasge if they are able.

hi, it does sound as if these girls watching u r the problem. like everyone else has said, just ignore them. if  theyve got nothing better to do than stand and make fun of people, then they seriously need to get a life. if i were you, next time they watch you, say to them "take a picture, it will last longer" and tell them to do 1. and dont let it luk like they are getting to you because that is what they want. trust me on this one, ive been through it on too many occasions. dnt worry bout it tho!!! there is nothing rong with u and i get exactly the same when im put under pressure. ul be fine!!! just keep smiling
