The Confident Rider - 153 Ways to Become a Confident Rider
The step by step method to improve your confidence and relaxation in the saddle
From a recent survey of the Listening to the Horse community, a lot of riders struggle with fear and confidence issues.
Maybe you had a fall which damaged your confidence, and you are working to be a confident rider again.
As we grow older, we don't bounce as well as we used to. That wonderful confidence we had as a child and a teenager begins to disappear, and we start to worry about 'what could happen'.
Maybe there was an incident that caused you to lose a little confidence in your horse.
Or maybe it was actually due to a trainer or instructor, who pushed you too far and stamped all over your confidence.
Horses read body language so well, and they immediately know when we are worried or unconfident. They don't know WHY we are feeling like this, but they understand you are worried, and this makes your horse worried - which ends up going down a difficult path for you both.
But the good news is that LOTS of riders have losses of confidence at different points in their life.
In fact, it's very normal. You are not alone.
And there are ways you can get your confidence back, one day at a time.
