Hey, fearless superstars. Today I’m going to answer the question, how do I get over my riding fear? Do I need to ride more?

No. The answer is no. You do not need to ride more. If you’re scared to ride, and keep riding while you’re scared to ride, all you will do is anchor the fear to your riding, and you will get scareder, and scareder, and scareder. Please don’t ride if you’re scared to ride your horse.

Now, you’re going, “Well, then, what do I do? Because I’m scared to ride and I want to ride.”

And I get that. That’s why I’m so passionate about helping people overcome their fear when riding, because we love these animals so much, and we love being on their back, and then, to not be able to ride and do what we love most because we’re scared, really hurts us. It really hurts us at a deep level, and I don’t want anyone experiencing that pain.

If you are ready to overcome that fear, let’s get in to it.

You don’t need to keep riding a horse. What you have to do is, do the work off your horse. There’s nothing wrong with your riding. It’s got to do with what’s in here (points to head). What’s in here is saying you’re scared. What’s in here has to resolve that, and move through that so this is confident, so then your body can do what your body needs to do.

Of course, the exception to this is, if your brain’s not scared. You’re just scared because you don’t have the skills to ride, like you’ve never ridden a horse before and you’re scared you’ll fall off. That’s valid. You’ve never ridden a horse before, so make sure that you go to a riding school where they’re going to teach you on quiet, slow horses, so you’ll learn the skills.

But if it’s not that, if you have the skills to ride but you’re too scared to ride because your brain’s stopping you, you need to do the work off the horse.

Remember, if you like this episode, and you want to make sure you never miss an episode, make sure you subscribe. And make sure you like and share it.

To do the work off the horse, you can watch a lot more of my free videos, you can go to my website and download some free tools to help you to overcome your fear. You need to do something to work out what’s going on in your brain.

I’m always flabbergasted that for people, going to fix what’s going on in their heads is the last thing they think about. For me, I always know what’s going on in here is a reflection of what’s going on out there. If I want to fix what’s going on, anything external to me, and outside in my world, I need to fix what’s going, internally.

You need to go and, you can read some books on NLP, you can go and do my stuff, you can also do my free web class where I tell you exactly what you need to do when you’re off the horse to fix what’s going on in here. Fix that story, and make sure that you know what to do next.

I’d love to invite you to my free web class. I will post the link below. In that free web class I’m going to share with you exactly what you need to do when you’re off the horse, as well as some other cool secrets that are going to help you overcome fear, this year.

Let’s make this year the year you overcome your fear and enjoy your riding again.

See you in the class, and I’ll see you soon.
