Ever Felt Like Hanging Up Your Boots? Does Any of This Sound Familiar?
Have you reached the stage when you just can't face another day feeling the way you do about your riding, jumping or dressage?
Ever wondered why your horse spooks when you ride him/her, but is calm as can be when others ride him/her?
Frustrated by stops and refusals when jumping a course, but your horse seems confident when someone else takes him around the course?
Does your horse work-in for a dressage test like a Grand Prix school master, then becomes tense, nervous and heavy in your hands as you ride up the center line?
Are you finding that you are making excuses not to ride. . . it's too cold, too windy, getting dark, got shopping to do, it might rain . . . Are days, weeks, months going by and you feel less and less like getting back in the saddle again?
Are you putting off entering competitions or going to shows?
Well, you're not alone. The feelings of fear, anxiety and tension and a lack of motivation are familiar territory to most riders at some time in their lives. This can lead to feelings of low self-esteem, anger and frustration. Many riders spend their riding careers looking for that perfect horse -- the one that does everything right. Sometimes we even find it, but low and behold, as we walk away from the stable or field, patting ourselves on the back for being so clever, they seem to change overnight. Then we are back to square one, with a whole new set of fears and anxieties.
Well, now you can do something positive about this. Once you have eliminated any possible horse health issues, or tack problems and you know your horse is getting all that he/she needs to make their lives as comfortable as possible, it's time to look at what you might be doing to create the problem. You might not be aware of just how much your body language is being transferred to your horse.
