Re: Nervous rider :-s
Dont think your the only out in the world like this, loads of people are like it!
When i was younger i wouldnt get on a riding school pony without a body proctor on, i have no idea why but it made me feel safe, i wasnt a nervouse ride at all when i was on the ponies but without a body proctor i was a totally different person.
I think it gave me confidence because i knew if i fell off it would hurt as much!
Do you ride in a body/back proctector?
Try ground work with horses before you ride to get a little more trust in them, i dont know where your from but if your anywhere near the derbyshire area try Milbourne equestrian centre, they're fab with nervouse riders and begginers as i used to be a stable hand there.
