The Nervous Rider Action Plan

How great would it feel to tack your horse up ready to ride, without those nagging feelings of anxiety, tension or fear? How good would life be if every time you rode, you felt relaxed, confident, calm, happy and at peace with your horse? This can be your reality by using Self-Hypnosis as your support system.


Learn to become a more confident, relaxed rider by using the power of your own mind! The Nervous Rider Action Plan combines a collection of Self-Help work-book exercises, a relaxation technique that can be performed at times of stress, a full Hypnotherapy Session to boost confidence riding and handling horses and lots of useful information about Stress and Anxiety; which will help you understand why your body reacts as it does when you become fearful riding or handling horses. 


​The printable worksheets are in a separate zipped (compressed) folder. These written exercises are designed to help you challenge how you think, how you perceive your problems, how you deal with them and what changes need to be made to reach your goals.

They will also help you to focus on what your goals actually are, and whether or not they are achievable and if not, what compromises do you have to make to satisfy your desires and wants. The foundation stone for this kind of work is called Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, which promotes healthy thinking styles, which in turn promotes healthy, positive emotions and productive behaviours and reactions; every negative emotion has a thought behind it, change your thoughts and you change your mood!

This Nervous Rider Action Plan will help you become a more informed, motivated, positive, confident rider with a relaxed, calm outlook, so that you and your horse can both fulfil your real potential.


As a bonus, this plan now includes "Hacking with Confidence" so no need to buy this, when buying the Action Plan.
