Okay, so when I first started riding about 7 years ago, i had no idea what was instore. When I first sat in the saddle, a whole new world oppened up to me. And i hope never to leave it...
I had a rocky start, I learnt to ride on ex race horses, that threw me off every lesson, and as you can imagine, as a young girl, my confidence was shattered. So, after 4 years of hard, but scary work, I developed a good seat, and good balance, but my problem was my confidence. Then we moved and I started at a new stables. Here, the horses are placid. the people are friendly, my instucter is cheery, and slowly an steadily I regained my confidence in all aspects of the sport. But now I had another problem..my instructer. She doesn't push me. I was blind to it, and loved my lessons. But recently, i went on a riding course, and that is where i discovered, I have potential. I wasn't just doing circles in trot evey lesson with an instructer that didn't care. I was galloping in stubble fields and jumping over 3 " 3. I though things would change now I knew i am actually a compitant rider.
I got back a week ago, and things have got worse. My riding instructer is in a mood with me for going, i am stuch jumping 1 foot cross poles again while my instructer talks to her friends. I am SO much better than this, and believe i can go far...but I have no idea what to do, there arn't any other stables for me to go to,
What do you think i should do?
