Hi all, i dont post much on here so most of you wont have a clue who i am / my history so will give you a brief intro.
Last spring for some unknown reason i had a complete crash of confidence. Couldnt get on Oscar and ride without having a total panic attack. After not making progress myself and being unable to understand why it happened ihad some hypnotherapy. I was just beginning to get some confidence and was almost able to ride round without someone walking alongside me when i fell pregnant. Obviously due to my nerves, riding wasnt an option whilst pregnant, i personally didnt wanna risk anything going wrong.
Anyway yesterday, after an emergency caesarian 8 weeks ago i felt the sudden urge to ride. Not felt that 'need' for so long. With the baby at her grandparents i went to the yard with my friend, groomed, and tacked up. After a bit of faffing around, up i got!! I managed to ride around totally alone for approx 15 mins. Only walk, few short trots and rein changes but it felt so good. I'm still on a high today. I can still ride!! hurrah!! Feeling a bit sore today tho!! Poor unfit body! Just needed to share with ppl who understand!
Well done those of you who managed to get all the way through!! Happy happy days!! hurrah for wonderful Oscar horse who was so calm and patient!!
