I am a nervous hacker and am slowly trying to build up my hacking confidence as my horse can only hack out right now. We have lots of space to ride round the farm including a very long driveway which leads out into a main 60mph road. I have no desire to ride through the gate, but yesterday and today I managed to ride up the drive and then loop round to one of our ‘safe’ hacking fields where I feel comfortable. This won’t mean much to many people but I know there are some fellow nervous hackers on here so I thought I would share. It is all about building these little steps. Hacking everyday is definitely helping my confidence, whereas before I would only hack once or twice a week. Just thought I would share as I am proud of myself.
