Since getting back in the saddle, I’ve always felt unsure of myself and my skills. I blamed it on needing more practice or riding horses that I wasn’t used to. What I’ve finally come to realise is that nervousness has a name, anxiety. And now that I know what it is, I have a better idea on how to deal with it.
Anyone can experience fear at any point in their lives. It doesn’t matter if you’re experienced in your field or a beginner. Fear is normal. We just have to learn to work through it and lot let it control us.
