Lost confidence

I have had my gelding now for 3 years and I keep getting to a point where I get scared of putting my foot in the stirrup to get on him. Usually over the summer, when he is more chilled and I have more light in the evenings after work, I seem to be able to pull myself together and gather up enough courage to give him and me another go. But now I have – again – come to this point where I seem completely incapable of enjoying my horse.

This sort of story comes up again and again: so many riders and their horses are slowly falling out of love with each other and with riding itself. This is a case of a mutual lack of confidence, something that my courses on Intuitive Riding are tailored towards. Whatever kind of riding you want to do, it should be fun, and perhaps challenging, but not an ordeal: contact me about an assessment and advice.
