Perhaps you should try exposing yourself a bit at a time to the horse. Get to know the horse and don’t let your fear show. A little bit at a time and eventually you may be able to get past the fear.
Please share your fears with your husband. You need support. Also consider therapy to help you deal with your fears.Keep on posting as we care and we are here to support you.
Hugs to you from a Mother of four.Kitt
I woke up this morning as exhausted as last night, but I did not have any more panic attacks last night. That in and of itself is a miracle. I am still having palpitations on and off but not as bad as i thought I would have. I can't shut my brain off and get any good sleep. I have been breaking out crying several times today. I know it is so stupid- so irrational- I am really struggling with this right now. I think time and distance helps things but I feel like i;m having post traumatic stress syndrome right now. If I could rest, it would be better.

I don't think that you sounded mean or rude. I think your advice is very good. Thank you! Maybe I can get a little better over time---a long, long, long time--but maybe I can .
Hopes,Just checking in to let you know you are in my prayers and I hope you will get past this fear. I admit I am afraid of large animals in fact I was afraid of dogs for years but now own a Doberman. One of my children got bitten once and that spooked me for years. Fear is uncomfortable>Keep on posting to us and we will help you as best we can.In friendshipKitt
