“I really want to say a huge thankyou to Natasha – the effect that you personally have had on my life is the one of the biggest life changes I have ever had, and it’s all for the better – and it’s not just in my riding.”


“I joined the Dream Team in April 2011, after trying for seven years to find a coach to help me with my fear of riding. I chose the Dream Team because I knew if Natasha, with all her training, couldn’t help me, no-one could.

Any reservations I had about the program or the results were dispelled at the first workshop.

After the first workshop, I learnt so much about myself, and why I do what I do, I couldn’t believe I had gone through life without knowing this before.

Then in the riding session, I had a huge fear of riding my horse away from home. I threw up in the morning before my lesson, and came to the arena shaking, with a heart rate of over 190bpm. I didn’t know what to expect, and I didn’t know if Natasha could help me. My goal for the session was just to get on and walk.

I don’t know how she did it, but after 30 minutes, she had me cantering around the arena, tears of joy running down my face, not believing it was me up there having so much fun.

For me, having achieved that, would have been enough for the year. But somehow, I found myself with enough courage and commitment to enter my first competition in August this year, only 4 months after joining the Dream Team. For 7 years I had only wished I could be someone competing at Werribee, but I knew I could never handle cantering around Werribee all alone, and having to do a competition.

Again, the day of my competition, I felt sick, and I wasn’t sure how I was going to do it. But Natasha had equipped me with the strategies and the knowledge to get through anything that came my way.

I successfully completed my first dressage test that weekend, and even now I don’t believe that I did it. The best thing is, I loved it! I can’t thank Natasha enough for not only giving me the encouragement to finally get my dream, but to make it such an enjoyable, exciting, pleasurable experience.

I am now working on improving my riding and my horse, so I can win a dressage test, knowing I won’t need to spend any energy on worrying about what can go wrong, and only focussing on what I have to do to be my best.

I really want to say a huge thankyou to Natasha – the effect that you personally have had on my life is the one of the biggest life changes I have ever had, and it’s all for the better – and it’s not just in my riding. Everything in my life has changed for the better – since I joined the Dream Team I got my dream job, we are moving into our dream house, my relationship with my partner and my daughter is better, and life is just easier and more fun! You have even taken away large burdens I have carried for my entire life, and made the future and present positive.

You are not just my mentor but my idol, and I am so thankful I have had the honor of having you in my life.”

And what Sara’s partner had to say:


When my wife joined the Dream Team, to help her overcome her fear of riding, naturally I was happy to support her, but was unsure what would come of it. Natasha has turned out to be an outstanding person. To this day she is the most positive and contagiously enthusiastic person we have met. She had an instant positive influence on my wife, which has amounted to so much more than just riding. As a person, I have watched her grow into a happier and more confident person, which has created stronger and better pathways in both our lives, relationship and family. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this journey so far and found that I have changed a lot myself, from having this involvement and association with the Dream Team.

Being shown how to achieve everything we wanted has resulted in us living lives beyond our dreams, and it is all due to one person with the passion, knowledge, drive and heart that created our new lives.

“The Dream Team is perfect for people that have hit a brick wall in their training…”


“My whole way of thinking has been changed and now I know how I can achieve my goals. The Dream Team is perfect for people that have hit a brick wall in their training or riding progression. It’s an answer to so many questions and demands you stop making excuses!”

“I’m so glad I made this decision”


“I wasn’t sure if I should join the Dream Team as I thought perhaps I wasn’t good enough or let others down. I made the decision to join because I had enough of my negative thoughts and I told myself I am good enough to do this and if I’m not I will learn to be. I’m so glad I made that decision. Natasha has shown me the way to become the real me and at the end of the first day I came home and screamed, yelled, danced and jumped for joy. Anyone who is stuck or unsure in the riding or goals has to do this program.”

“By going through the exercises and learning how I think, I have unlocked a whole new me ready to go.”


“I loved Natasha’s energy and excitement. By going through the exercises and learning how I think and how my beliefs hold me back has unlocked a whole new me ready to go. I love that I am committed to developing myself and getting results for not only the next 12 months, but for life. By having the support the knowledge and the kick up the butt if I need it I know I will achieve my goals. I was a bit reserved about joining the Dream Team as change can be scary and the Dream Team is really different. I often try new things and quit when things get hard. Knowing I have committed to this program for a year and will remain focused on getting results by the way the program is structured I know the next 12 months will be amazing for me. Its reassuring to know I have access to Natasha’s wealth of knowledge and inspiring enthusiasm. I would recommend the dream team to anyone who wants to get their goals on track and start getting results.”

“I’m enjoying putting it all into action and achieving my goals rather than just dreaming them.”


“I had reservations about joining the Dream Team due to the time commitment. With two young children it’s challenging to arrange my time and babysitters around undertaking something like this. But I realised it was important for me to focus on my goals and dreams and set an example of success for my kids.

I loved learning about beliefs and self-talk. I’m excited about how that can be changed and is pivotal to changing behaviour for success. I’m enjoying putting it all into action and achieving my goals rather than just dreaming them.

I would recommend the Dream Team to people like myself who have perhaps lost sight of their dreams amongst the everyday demands of life.”

“The Dream Team is huge value for money and anyone who wants to improve themselves and achieve the best of themselves for themselves should do this program.”


“Living in WA it was a huge financial and time committment to come down to Vic but as soon as I got my Dream Team Pack I knew I HAD to be part of it. The Dream Team allows you to connect with geniunie supportive horsey people and Natasha’s wealth of knowledge about NLP, goal setting and riding brings it all together so you know what to do and for me I really started to believe in myself. The Dream Team is huge value for money and anyone who wants to improve themselves and achieve the best of themselves for themselves should do this program.”

“I’ve had a lot of lessons on how to sit on a horse but not so many people can teach you how to change your mindset”


“I was worried about joining the Dream Team as it was a lot of money to spend. After doing the first month I am happy to know it definately is value for money. I’ve had a lot of lessons on how to sit on a horse but not so many people can teach you how to change your mindset. I love working with like minded people and developing an awareness of how and what is causing my behaviours and how to change them. I would reccomend the Dream Team to anyone who wants to be more positive about their riding and themselves.”
