Too scared to ride your horse? (FearLESS Friday Ep78)

FearLESS Friday Ep78

Hey FearLESS Superstars! Today I’m going to talk to you about to do if you are too scared to ride your horse.

We’ve all been there. We’ve had a fall. We’ve seen someone else fall. Something’s happened and we’re too scared to ride our horse. We’re especially too scared to ride our horse out in an uncertain environment, or riding a stallion, past horses or whatever it is that we’re doing. What you need to understand is what you’re scared of is not what you think you’re scared of.

You might say falling off, bolting, bucking rearing, losing control, something like that. That’s not actually what you’re scared of. If I could guarantee that your horse bucks, rears, bolts, goes out of control, any of those scenarios happen, but you stay on, and you’re absolutely fine, you wouldn’t be scared.

 

If you enjoyed today’s episode and it gave you huge value, I would love to invite you to a free class I’ve created for you to help you have confidence when you ride your horse.

Hey, fearless superstars. Today I’m going to answer the question: What do you do if you’re too scared to ride your horse?

Okay. We’ve all been there. We’ve had a fall. We’ve seen someone else fall. Something’s happened and we’re too scared to ride our horse. We’re especially too scared to ride our horse out in an uncertain environment, or riding a stallion, past horses or whatever it is that we’re doing. What you need to understand is what you’re scared of is not what you think you’re scared of.

If you’re watching me right now going, “Oh, I’m scared the stallion is going to rear, or the stallion is going to bolt, or the stallion is going to do something,” that’s not actually what you’re scared of, and especially if you are riding the horse. What would you be scared of right now? Or if you are riding your horse out in the open, what would you be scared could happen?

And you might say falling off, bolting, bucking rearing, losing control, something like that. That’s not actually what you’re scared of. If I could guarantee that your horse bucks, rears, bolts, goes out of control, any of those scenarios happen, but you stay on, and you’re absolutely fine, you wouldn’t be scared. So then you go, “Fine. I’m not scared of all those things. I’m scared of falling or I’m scared of getting hurt.”

Well, if you fall and I guarantee that you wouldn’t get hurt, you wouldn’t be scared of falling. You’re scared of getting hurt. It’s valid. You should be scared of getting hurt. You have a self-preservation strategy, that’s good. But what are your chances of getting hurt? What are your chances of slipping in the shower and breaking your arm? What are the chances of being in a car accident when you get in a car? What are the chances of you being hurt on a day-to-day basis?

And your chances are pretty slim. We tend to get through life very rarely getting hurt, and it’s the same when we ride. But because you feel your chances of getting hurt might be more on a horse because of something you’ve done in your head, you then amplify that fear. And even your fear of getting hurt isn’t actually your fear. But I’m getting too deep for a YouTube video.

What I want to do is invite you to a really cool web class that I’ve got going. This web class explores what your fear really is because it’s not what you think it is. The mind is a really, really cool, powerful tool, and it creates a reality that we think is real, but isn’t real. So the more you understand you brain, the more you understand how your brain works, and the more you understand your fear and what your fear really is, because I guarantee you, I’ve worked with enough riders to know what you think your fear is, is not your fear.

Then, the more you understand that, the more you can then really break free from the fear that’s holding you back and step into confidence, step into fun and step into the riding that you want to have. I’d love to invite you to that free class. It’s completely free for you to learn and explore more around fear. I can’t wait to support you in it, and you can register for the class somewhere on or around this video and I’ll see you in the class very soon. Have a great Friday.
