I can understand why your friends tell you not to get back on Smarty. They do not want to see you hurt. I do not want that either. I was in the same situation with my first horse. I do not know if Smarty is highstrung, but my first horse was very high strung and dominant. Every one in my family and my friends told me to let her go and get another horse before I got hurt. I fell off of her 3 times. But when I got hurt I was not even on her. I was trying to load her into a trailer and she was not afraid, she was disrespectful. It was after I was hurt trying to load her that I began to seek successful people that handled horses with out getting hurt or hurting their horses, and take notes from them. I then began to learn. It is proper knowledge and not taking short cuts that will keep you safe. Always keep that in mind and you learn to read your horse and you can stay safe. When he is not ready for the ride, you get him ready before you get on. Mental preparation is the key for the horse and rider also. Sometimes I just get on Fancy. That may not be good. But if I feel she is too hyper I can always get off. If you ever get on him before he is ready and he does not settle down, get off.
You be safe, enjoy Smarty or any other horse that graces your presence, admire the natural world that God has blessed us with, love yourself and your life, ride, ride, ride ♥
