Confidence Coaching

Are you a nervous rider, maybe afraid to ride alone or have you had a fad fall?  After negative riding experiences, your mind can create limiting beliefs about yourself as a rider. These beliefs have emotions such as fear or anxiety attached to them that can influence your behaviour, causing you to tense up when riding.

This tension is communicated directly to your horse through your body language, causing your horse to be on his toes as he imagines danger lurking around the corner, because of your tension. He may spook at the slightest thing, confirming your limiting beliefs about riding and so creating a downward spiral of emotions.

The good news is that our equestrian coaching provides a powerful solution to help you eliminate the limiting beliefs, freeing you from any fear and anxiety and helping you to enjoy riding again.  Whether you want to start competing, or jumping, or you simply want to hack out alone - these techniques work.

We use proven techniques including:

-  NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)
-  Time Line Therapy
-  Memory Re-Solution
-  Coaching
-  Hypnotherapy
-  Psychotherapy

These techniques rebuild your confidence and belief in yourself, creating motivation to all of the things you dreamed of as a child: galloping along beaches, cantering across open fields, exploring the countryside on horseback, jumping a x-country course, competing in a dressage test.

These were all of the things that Vicky, founder of Inspirational Riding Solutions, dreamed of doing since her teens.

After working with these amazing techniques, she fulfilled all of her lifelong dreams. She may not have the best jumping position (as you can see), but she definitely has lots of fun. She now helps other nervous riders enjoy their horses and live their dreams.

I just wanted to say thank you again for the course it was really interesting and helpful, especially in an event that happened a couple of days ago. I was on a hack with a couple of friends and we were trotting along a field when one of the horses got too excited and started to go sideways and backwards. However, there was a ditch filled with water behind and the horse slid backwards into it with her rider. The rider managed to scramble up from the ditch but the horse was stuck. Long story short we had to call the fire and animal rescue service to get her out and spent 6 hours in A&E. Luckily both horse and rider are fine and are resting for a few days. It was a very terrifying ordeal but when it happened I used the breathing exercises you taught me and used my anchor in order to focus on calming myself and everyone down and concentrating on what needed to be done. So thank you so much for your help.
