I fell in love with horses just recently. My first ride was full of fear. I felt like falling and so I get off it. How can I stop the fear of falling and ride with confidence?

It takes time and practice. Have a good trainer and a good horse and you will build confidence in time. Everyone feels unsteady in the saddle when they start riding. Learning how to balance and sit in the saddle will help you feel more secure
Thanks so muchm
Hi Tijjani!

Welcome in the equestrian world aha! It's natural to be scared at the beginning, the best thing to do is to find the right trainer that will give you the right horse. Once you understand that nothing bad can happen then the fear will go away. You just have to listen to your trainer and everything will be fine 🙂
