How to Overcome Riding Fear?

Hey Riding Superstars! Today we have one of our most popular FearLESS Friday TV Throwback! How to Overcome Riding Fear?

The only way to feel confident when you ride is to do the work and create the confidence when you ride. Natasha’s FearLESS Riding Success program is getting daily reports of riders cantering, jumping, laughing and loving their riding – and you could be doing this too!

The more I work with riders, the more I understand the deep central fear is, “Have I got what it takes? Am I good enough? Can I handle it?” And the amount of people that don’t trust themselves and the amount of people that don’t believe in themselves is an epidemic in this country and probably around the world. So it’s my mission and my dream to uplift and inspire and enable riders to find their strength within and to take that into their riding so they can enjoy their bliss again.

 

I’d love to hear from you how you go and what strategies you use to get your horse to canter.

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,

Natasha Althoff

​​Hey, FearLESS Superstars, welcome to the audio book of FearLESS Riding Success. Super fun to share this book with you and… It must be weird to hear my voice reading you a book. I’m so pumped and excited that you’re here and taking the first step to transforming your riding and breaking through your fears. Huge congratulations. There are so many people out there that aren’t willing to do what it takes, that are looking for the easy way, that are hoping that a magic pill can fix all their problems and make their life easy. So you’re in the very small minority who realize that that’s not life, that in life you have to do more and be more to get more.

So I felt compelled to write this book after I saw a recurring pattern emerging from coaching many of my riding clients, they were allowing fear to hold them back from all the great and wonderful things about riding. They weren’t having the fun and the joy and the bliss that is available to anyone at any time if they choose to enjoy it. Their fear was holding them back from having that. So when it comes down to it, amongst all of our riding challenges come from fear. Sometimes these are known and spoken fears such as the fear of cantering or riding in open spaces. However, I’ve also identified a number of unspoken unknown fears. These are the deep-seated fears in the unconscious brain that are seemingly unknown to the rider and hence unspoken, a fear of not being good enough, a fear of being judged and a fear of not being accepted are all examples of these kinds of fears.

The more I work with riders, the more I understand the deep central fear is, “Have I got what it takes? Am I good enough? Can I handle it?” And the amount of people that don’t trust themselves and the amount of people that don’t believe in themselves is an epidemic in this country and probably around the world. So it’s my mission and my dream to uplift and inspire and enable riders to find their strength within and to take that into their riding so they can enjoy their bliss again.

Whether the fears are spoken or unspoken, solutions to these are hard to find. It’s for that reason I wrote this book to take you through a proven system I’ve used with my clients, moving you through your fear and providing the solutions you need to break through and become the confident, calm and composed rider you wish to be. I know what it’s like to feel fear. Believe me, I feel it all the time, all the time. I know how it feels like. I’ve faced and overcome a lot of fears in own riding. I learned how to ride. So of course I was scared to trot, of course I was scared to canter, of course I was scared to go over a jump, of course I was scared to ride alone, of course I was scared to ride with people. Of course I was scared to ride in front of people, of course I was scared to compare it, of course I was scared to compete in front of judges. Everything you feel and everything you’re scared of is what I’ve felt and what I’ve been scared of, but you can’t let that hold you back.

I’ve also been hurt. I’ve been backed off and broken two bones in my back. I’ve come last in competitions and been told to give up. I’ve been eliminated, embarrassed, and had obstacle after obstacle-
