“GET OVER IT”.
“I hear it frequently during lessons. My trainer can see that I am no longer connected to my horse; that I’m thinking too much.
“This is a chronic problem. My entire life I have been very cerebral, balancing ideas and considering outcomes. Horse riding has been a way for me to escape my own brain but it doesn’t always help. I war between self-doubt and my passion for horses.
“I’ve been called many things, but “timid” never in my memory. This is how I view myself.
“Perhaps in a way this will show you just how important horses are to me in my life. I want to be the best I can be. Sadly, this results in self-doubt and delayed progress. I am my own worst enemy.
“These are the confessions of a timid rider.”
