[RC] Fear and Anxiety - bsbat - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Diane Roby diane_roby2002@xxxxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
==========================================

After my 5th concussion (3 horse related) and having developed a full blown 
case of "canter anxiety" I started meditating.
Now whenever I start to get tense, I count to 10, with one
being the first breathe out.  When I get to 10 I start
over again until I've relaxed.  

Right now my biggest fear is cantering in an arena.  I
take dressage lessons once a week and have lucked
out in that my instructor is happy for me to stay at
the walk/trot level until I feel ready.
