Great Post Kelly! I have had my spills and they have made me a more cautious rider but I don't know if there is anything that could keep me from riding. I think I think even if I became paralized I would still find a way to get on a horse. I love your advice though. I had never heard of the EMDR. Very interesting.


After 7 months of lessons (from scratch), I fell off a couple of weeks ago for the first time. I wasn't hurt and wasn't particularly scared, but I did get scared about it happening again afterwards. I had a great lesson last weekend but I wasn't riding the same horse I fell off of. Thanks for the great tips.

Learning Horses (Jerri)

I have had many spills, but none of them shook me as much as a serious injury did that was not horse related. But that fear of getting hurt again was so great that it set back my riding tremendously.

Now that time has passed however and I have had a few more spills, I think that in the end, it has made me a better rider. Because I am determined to solve the issues (spookiness) and learn how to stick (balance) and develop more trust with my animal (horsemanship).

Oh yeah and I just wore full seat breeches for the first time today. Boy, have I been missing out!

Two years ago, I went off three times in a row from my bolting mustang. It took the third and most serious offing (over the canoe, squeezing between fence and horsetrailer, then burying my elbow 6 inches into hard packed ground) before I really got fearful. Then we did 18 months of ground work to restore both of our confidences.

Now I don't ride broncky horses out by myself and I love my helmet.

There is a good website on EFT which is an offshoot of the neural reprogramming you mentioned. They have basic instructions on their site. its www.emofree.com.
