Anxiety Phobias in Scottish Borders

I started riding when I was 7 and rode for around 6 years before taking a break. (School, jobs, exams etc. all began to take priority!)

I returned to the saddle when I was 20 and once again became hooked!!

I now have two ponies, My palomino Connemara Johnny and my coloured cob, Connie. They are amazing! However, when re-starting as an adult, no matter how bomb proof my ponies were, I was aware things were different to when I rode as a child. I felt fear! "What if I fall off?... this might hurt... what if I can't work?... what if she bucks?... what if he rears?"... The list was endless! As adults we overthink situations. Pretty quickly I understood why so many riders lose their confidence. Whether it's after a bad fall, a scary experience, pressure from other equestrians, pressure from yourself, moving up competition levels, or maybe a bit of time off, I think it's fair to say that all riders experience some form of self doubt at least once during their riding career.
