This program is f…. fantastic
I have a NLP Master Practitioner degree (year 2000) and it is so great to get it coupled with fear regarding riding.
I am not riding my 23 year old mare anymore as she has issues with her right hip, but I am working ON and OFF with 5 year old horse and a 15 year old mare that has given birth to a foal 1 month ago.
I am going to ride the 15 year old mare within the near future and right now we are training both mare and foal to be confident in the riding arena.
The owner is handling the foal and I am handling the mare and we are just having SO MUCH FUN.
When I work with horses I am focusing very much on the kind of person I WANT to be, smiling, playing, breathing and being calm.
I  focus on guiding the energy level meaning if the horse is very energetic I focus on getting the best out of it guiding this energy from eg. going very much forward to having more “suspensiion” in the gaits in order to get the best out of the energy. Have a nice day!

Hi Everyone,
I started the course in December 2018.Unfortunately my mare Grace became very ill and I didn’t get to rride until March 2019. A couple of weeks after being able to ride I broke my foot and had to have 6 months out of the saddle. Just as I got well my mare became very ill again and we nearly lost her. Thanks to my wonderful vets she is back and now doing amazing.
The last two weeks have been absolutely amazing. Thanks Natasha for the program – I still have my moments but with the assistance of fabulous sister helping me out I’m getting there.
Along with the program I think the best investment we made was buying a Cee Coach, so that my sister can constantly talk to me and ask me to explain how I’m feeling to her. My sister words of encourargement and support have been a huge help too.
A first for us this weekend – 2years since I last did any major cantering I not only did a small circle but spent our entire ride in trot and canter not just walking.
Thanks Natasha for giving me the skills to enjoy my riding again.

I am so grateful for all of the detailed and well explained training and answered questions in this program so that I can apply them when I ride and see the amazing changes my horse and I have made!! Thank you Natasha Althoff and Your Riding Success team!!!

So I joined this course to help me become a competent and confident rider and the videos and instructions have helped me so much. I’m nowhere near even beginner level dressage but this weekend was a major step fro me as we did our very first canter. It was neither elegant or pretty but I was soooo happy!!!

PK Pud

So thankful to this program for helping me to make progress with this guy. I have a long way to go and can see my position needs a lot fo help but lately I have been feeling a noticeable difference in the straightness of my horse. His canter has changed and although in this pic he look a little heavy he is actually becoming lighter all the time. So thankful for the progress and I look forward to what is to come!

Andrea Kroeker

After six months off, the yella terra is back and I’m very excited that he has remembered everything Tash has taught us!

Sue Williams

Today I finally got back in the saddle after I joined the webinar about fear. I have this strange disease that made me lost my balance and I had to learn to even walk again. So I got scared of riding my horse even though I have trained my balance. I just want to say thank you for the class! Now I can enjoy riding again.

Celina Bexander

This time last year I was terrified by the idea of getting on a horse. Today I had no fear at all.

We did some mentally challenging and interesting stuff and Bandendella Resort. We went up on to platforms, across narrow bridges, woobly bridges, see-saw bridges, pits with softdrink cans, pits with water, and all sort of other things. Not once did he refuse anything. He did ask me if it was okay and I reassured him that it was okay. He helped me to find the leader he needed me to be today.

I have the best horse in the world. He is truly one in a million.

There is no way I would have been able to do this after owning a horse for only a few months without the Fearless Mastery program. I’m so grateful.

Alisha Taylor

I started your program last month just love it so far. I’ve been stuck at second level forever and I feel like even after 30 years of dressage lessons with very competent trainers I was still missing things. I was right to start at the beginning again, your videos have been a good refresher course for me. And most importantly got me thinking about how to solve my own problems. I also love to see your Friesian videos as I won a rather lazy one myself so it helps me relate a little bit and not be as frustrated with him. Lol. Keep up the good work and thank you for your help!

I am having a lot of “aha”! Moments where things just click into place my horse and I are just clicking on to leg meaning “push/ride into the bit” she is holding herself in a beautiful frame and really lifting her back which makes me feel like I’m sitting on a round yoga ball!! Feels incredible.

As for my baby horse, we are learning rhythm and consistency, the fun days of a baby where they go real quick, but then suck back we are finding our middle ground. I use assistance in this awesome lunging system to either work my horses on days I don’t ride, and/or as a muscle building and teaching stretching. In no way does it tie the horse down but offer encouragement and I am seeing incredible results.

Hi everybody, I joined though I’m the most skeptic person when it comes to buying subscription Tash quickly prove me wrong. I have to horses my 12 hannoveranian and my one year old holstener/swedish warmblood. To lovely gentlemen whom I love and adore. I have the at home, and I enjoy every minute of it I jump but my heart is in dressage and I love to hack out we live I sweden my husband and I.

Eva Lynn

I have paid for this for over a year and found it very very useful. There is so much information, communicated in such an easy-to-understand way. Definitely worth the investment in yourself and your riding partner. I was brand new to dressage and found everything in the videos super helpful, and, in conjunction with my trainer here in Colorado they have really mad a difference in my riding.

Lori Ellen

Am STOKED with the results from the Equestrian Qld Leaderboard.. CHAMPION Preliminary Dressage on my Rescue OTT Reuban and Reserve Champion Dressage Novice on my Hanoverian Dustee.
A Huge THANK YOU to Tash and her Team

Nance Reinke

It was really amazing, take away was really picking apart my fear.

I’m returning to riding after over 11 years (and 2 kids with disabilities) as well as having bone density issues myself now, and while I’d paid lip service to the impact of doing risky stuff, I hadn’t realised how deep the impact of what its were for me right now. (Single mum with zero support caring for my kids, so no back up plan if you will).

But it’s also given me a new appreciation of the horse I’ve been riding.. that I can trust her, because I can trust me.

What a great day with my incredible Knight. Ride Test Ride Testing at training Level 3. we scored a 68 and I couldn’t be prouder of him. After a winter of rain and cold, training and lessons have been challenging. We have been working so hard to improve and intensely watching our Dressage Mastery program and working so hard each week. It’s been 8 weeks since my trainer has seen us and I’m so happy she saw our hard work paying off. Love my OTTB. He steals my heart 2019 goals Level 1 here we come. He is so handsome.

“She was one of the main reasons I felt I could take on my beautiful yet extremely challenging pony. I raise my glass to you Natasha for inspiring so many riders around the world and I thank you for making me believe in myself.”

Cally Loridas

Natasha Althoff Thanks for trying to help with issues concerning my ‘genius’ who can pigroot from canter to trot. You were right. He WAS blocked but it was my collecting too much prior to the trot that blocked him.
He used to be ridden by a para rider so is super sensitive to seat aids. If I don’t let my back ‘go’ during the transition his backside hits his neck and we have pigroot!
Problem solved!

Rebecca Bloomer

“Thanks for all you do I decided to watch your video on over coming fear. I’m only 40 but with my confidence. For 6 months I’ve been recovering from a knee injury while I got off a green horse. My anxiety has been worse because this green mare had bolted on me that day too. My daughter and I got gifted a beautiful gelding we have had him 2 months and my fear was getting worse. Well this weekend I got brave and took a dressage lesson on my new horse. He even spooked on the way home and it was no big deal my sprained ankle held up well. Thanks so much for your videos.”

Tara Grunwald

“I only wish there were more trainers like you out there!!”

“Excellent, Excellent trainer!! Not every great rider should teach, they assume they can, but then there are riders who were meant to do both. You were meant to guide future generations in the saddle, I only wish there were more trainers like you out there!!”

Cheryl Albright

“Tash’s videos have inspired me – don’t give up on your dreams!”

“Had to share. I qualified for the RDA National Championships on Beau coming 1st in dressage and in showjumping which I’ve only just started. I can certainly say our riding journey has come a long way in a year.”
