Confidence Building for Riders

Cantering or even just walking through the countryside or across a beach at sunset is one of the pinnacles for most riders. Unfortunately for many people this is so far from their reality. Sometimes it can be scary or daunting to even just put your foot in the stirrup and climb back onto the horse, especially if you’ve been in an accident or had any bad experiences.What are your concerns with riding? This is not a “one size fits all” service as confidence affecting reasons are widely varied from rider to rider. Using targeted mindset strategy sessions and awareness experiences, your concerns are reflected upon and a confidence building program is tailored to your specific needs.
