adult adv riders coming back into riding
what do you do when you are coming back into riding after x amount yrs off and FEEL like you are back to square one(beginner skills)?
i was a adv rider that has been off for 3 yrs,but still owned horse(s) while off, as i was dealing with other life's difficulties..
i am getting into my riding again as i do have a 3.5 yr old youngster(horse) getting ready to ride.i have been feeling really doubtful of my riding skills to a point where i feel like i have slipped down to beginner level:eek:.
my previous skills included things like the typical adv rider like training/riding my own youngsters and other boarders horses and do well with them.teaching,showing own and catch riding,jumping2'6-3ft courses,and working with horses with training prob and most of the time able to fix in good manner.etc,just to name some.if i got asked to do any of these right now i would have to turn away client as i don't feel confident in myself at the moment.my mother is very supportive,but sometimes that's just not enough.how do i deal with this?anyone deal with this type of problem before.
i know this is long,just wanted to write a lil background.
