Do You Have Fear In Your Horse Riding? Try This!

Hey Riding Superstars! Today we have one of our most popular FearLESS Friday TV Throwback! Do You Have Fear In Your Horse Riding? Try This!

We love these animals so much and then the pleasure and the joy and the honor of being allowed to be on their back and experience whatever is fun for you. Like I remember feeling them running so fast or jumping or even when a dressage horse does a canter pirouettes, whatever it is, that joy, that feeling it’s like a drug. It’s really, really great. But the fear can get in the way of that and the fear can stop that. So I’m passionate about helping riders get rid of the fear holding them back, not get rid of fear because that’s unethical.

And fear is a sign post that we’re out of our comfort zone and we’re doing something new. But if the fear is stopping us, enjoying our riding and stopping us riding and stopping us in having that really enjoyable, joyful feeling, we need to do something about that.

I’d love to hear from you how you go and what strategies you use to get your horse to improve your confidence when you ride.

Offer as much details as possible in your reply – your story might just help someone else have a breakthrough in their riding journey!

Thank so so much for reading, watching and sharing your story!

To Your Success,

​Hey FearLess Superstars. Welcome to FearLESS Friday. Today I’m going to answer the question, why did I create a FearLESS Mastery program?

So this is the FearLESS Mastery program. Why did I create it? Because I am really passionate about people experiencing their riding in a joyful, fun, exciting way. I can still remember the pure joy, the pure pleasure of me as a six year old riding a pony around a fare. I can still remember the tears of excitement and the happiness of riding my own horse, when I was 13 years old and when I rode as a 13 year old. All I wanted to do was go really, really fast around the paddocks. That was for me riding. I can still remember the joy and the fun of going to my first pony club. All of those things have been such amazing experiences in my life and so much fun and so much joy. Then as what can inevitably happen when we ride horses, something can happen that can make us then become fearful of it.

You can have a fall, you can see someone else have a fall. You can suddenly realize that you could fall, or whatever it is and that fear robs you of that pure joy, love, excitement feeling … that that’s why we ride. We love these animals so much and then the pleasure and the joy and the honor of being allowed to be on their back and experience whatever is fun for you. Like I remember feeling them running so fast or jumping or even when a dressage horse does a canter pirouettes, whatever it is, that joy, that feeling it’s like a drug. It’s really, really great. But the fear can get in the way of that and the fear can stop that. So I’m passionate about helping riders get rid of the fear holding them back, not get rid of fear because that’s unethical.

And fear is a sign post that we’re out of our comfort zone and we’re doing something new. But if the fear is stopping us, enjoying our riding and stopping us riding and stopping us in having that really enjoyable, joyful feeling, we need to do something about that. I’ve worked with enough riders to know that the riders that suffer from fear are doing so because of how they’re coding it in their brain.

I’m an NLP master practitioner. I know how people do that in their brain to therefore create feelings in their body, of fear or anxiety or whatever that feeling is, and therefore that determines what behavior they’re going to choose or not choose to do, because of the feeling and the things going on in here. So I created this program to give people the manual. When we’re born, we’re not given a manual that comes with the TV that says, this is how your brain works, this is how your body works, and this is how you change something if it’s not working for you.

I don’t know about you, but I didn’t get that manual. And I didn’t get that manual until I did my NLP training and I finally had the manual of working out, what I do in here can therefore change what I do out here. So the FearLESS Mastery program has everything I’ve learned in NLP in regards to overcoming fear and in regards to using fear as a stepping stone to success, rather than a stopping, blocking problem. And I put it all on the program and I wasn’t sure, I did the program, I did it to myself because I had fallen and I had a problem with one of my stallions. I’d broken a bone in my back and so I knew it worked for me, but I wasn’t sure how well it was going to work with everyone else.

But then when I started working with clients and I started putting this program out there and I started getting the feedback back, I was just so excited to get up every day because I’m really honored and so, so blessed that people trust me with their riding challenges, like fear and I can help them get back to that joy and excitement that I know they want to have.

So I’m super, super honored that I can do that. And I hope I can do that for you if you’re also being challenged by fear. So that’s why I created the program, to help as many riders as I can, have that joy and excitement back in their riding lives and not be stopped or blocked by fear that they’ve created and therefore created that prison for themselves. So to give back the manual so you know how to get rid of that prison and how to get back to the joy and excitement for you.
