Horses, Riding and Anxiety

Horses have always been a part of my life.

I used to ride bareback at a full gallop, wind blowing through my hair, energy surging through me, free and brave! Riding was something that relaxed me.

Now things are different. Its too windy to ride. I feel a migraine headache coming on. My horse seems a little hyper today. The arena is too crowded. I don't know anyone here.

Better not ride today. I will do it tomorrow.

I can make more excuses than the day is long. More promises to myself.

More letting myself down.

No more -- this has to end.

I will not let fear rule my life.

I will not let myself down.


  1. I hate the fact that horses don't have steering wheels and brakes, I think that they pick up on my tenseness (not sure that's even a word but you know what I mean!)

  2. LOL I agree! Horses seem to pick up on everything!

  3. People need not fear if they are capable of achieving what they need and want.
