I posted last week about the panic attacks around mounting.

Today I led the horse into the school, put the mounting block in place, took a breath, mounted, and got moving. No hesitation at all!

We then proceeded to learn the rising trot!

My instructor was great and helpful. The horse was steady as a rock.

I'm now prancing and preening. The rising trot! Me!

Thanks for all the supportive advice before.

thats brilliant news, well done! Onwards and upwards!
I'm proud of myself tonight, have been riding for years and years but lost my nerve following an accident recently (I wasnt hurt in accident so no reason for me being a wally) And my lessons have gone to pot a bit and I cant face hacking, but tonight I managed a reasonable canter figure of 8 which I haven't done for ages Grin its a nice feeling and hopefully on the step to get back to where I was with my riding

I would thoroughly recommend Perfect Confidence by Kelly Marks for anyone who has lost their confidence in riding ( or not found it yet!).
