Most riders suffer from a loss of confidence at some point in their
lives. This can be due to an accident or incident or as a knock-on
from challenges in other parts of their lives.
The effects can be minor, such as doubts about your ability or
anxiety about certain activities to more major ones such abject fear
of things like jumping, riding in the open or hacking. For some people
it becomes so bad that they have to psych themselves up even to
get on a horse.
Traditional methods tend to be “exposure therapy” where the
sufferer is either expected to “feel the fear and do it anyway” or
gradually build up their confidence in tiny steps.
Confidence Coaching offers an
alternative which is much quicker
and the effects are more lasting.
