Hypnotherapy for Equestrian performance


I have personally been a horse rider since the age of 3, having competed in show jumping, cross country, dressage and various other activities. I have been a riding instructor for 13 years and have taught from the ages of toddler to adult, alongside running open shows, taking out hacks and working on charity riding events.


I use to own 4 horses, of which now, I have one horse. I have had a vast amount of experience in breaking horses and the schooling thereafter.


Having been in the equestrian field for so long I have had my fair share of falls and mishaps that have resulted in injury and obviously with the teaching experience I have also experienced the accidents from within lessons. I can fully appreciate how falls from horses, accidents on the ground, long periods of not riding can have such an impact on someones life in so far as them feeling nervous or scared of carrying on, or worried about getting back in the saddle.


It is for this reason that I thought it would be of great benefit to now put my equestrian knowledge and also my experience and knowledge of hypnotherapy together to offer help within the equestrian industry.

Hypnotherapy for equestrian performance I am developing to try and help give many different benefits to riders, it can be targeted in many ways.


This hypnotherapy is designed to be approximately a 3 session plan plus initial consultation and may help give the mental and physical edge to ride your very best every time you enter the ring or have a course infront of you, become more in tune with your horse which will give you the benefit of being able to guide your horse to achieve his / her peak performance, it may help you work through any past falls or accidents you may of had that have left you with nerves and concerns, learning to get over past failures within the ring or working with horses, help you build confidence in your riding abilities and to trust your horses natural athletic talent to help him / her to perform complicated obstacles / routines / course of fences.


This  completely personalised therapy plan is worked out for you with completely what YOU need within it. Prepare the mind ASWELL as the body.
