FREEING RIDERS FROM FEAR
It all starts in your head...
Have you ever noticed, that your ride and how you feel about that ride changes
depending on what mood you're in?
Being around horses for over 30 years and teaching and coaching for 10 years, Pam has seen the big impact that mindset has on us all. Whether you are competing or trail riding, returning to horses after a break or a riding-pro, what you
say to yourself
is the biggest predictor of how you feel about your journey than anything else.
The biggest challenge horse riders face is the unpredictable nature of horses. We are working with big animals that are wired for flight. It's no wonder the most common problem Pam sees with horse owners is a loss of confidence.
What do we do when this happens? It's common in the industry to "push through", "face your fears", "get back on the horse"...
What if there was another way?
Change is easy when we give ourselves new STRATEGIES that show our minds a new way of processing information and making meaning of experiences. As a Master Practitioner in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Pam will quickly get to the bottom of your fear, find out what strategies aren't working for you and give you tools to change your thinking.
Pam has successfully helped clients with:

Had an INJURY or a FALL?
The biggest fear I see from clients is those who have had a fall or near fall. Here's what's going on and ways to help you get your confidence back and enjoy riding again.
A WELL-TRAINED horse is a SAFE horse
When things go wrong with our horses, going back to basics and asking how we can improve our communication is key to improving our safety on and around our horse.
Not competing from fear of being judged, criticised, laughed at, talked about? There are some simple techniques to get a BOOST of confidence and certainty in and around the competition arena.
Returning to riding...help...I'm not riding like I used to!
After a break from horses and riding, many women return to owning horses and tell me they haven't got that same fearlessness that they used to have. "I just can't ride like I used to!" Here are some common reasons why and what you can do when returning to your youthful rider.
If you do what you've always done
You'll get what you've always got
