This changed everything for me!

What if the secret to conquering your fears isn't about getting rid of them, but about where you put your focus?

In today's episode, I'm sharing a game-changing realization from my horsemanship journey: it’s not about eliminating fears and anxieties but about directing your focus toward what truly matters.

(And it’s not just me. This works for every rider I’ve shared this with as well).

We’ll dive into why trying to banish negative thoughts can actually hold you back and how accepting them as part of the human experience can set you free. I’ll share insights from my own experiences and coaching sessions, revealing how to handle those pesky negative thoughts that can derail your rides and your confidence.

This episode is packed with personal stories, practical tips, and a fresh perspective on mastering your mindset for better rides and a stronger relationship with your horse. So, if you’re ready to elevate your riding game and embrace the mental side of horsemanship, tune in now. Let’s focus on what we want and make those wildest dreams a reality together.

Join us for an empowering journey that promises to transform not just your rides but your entire approach to life with horses.

#113 Here’s What No One is Going to Tell You When it Comes to Horses

Have you ever felt like you don’t fit into the typical mold of a rider because you don’t compete, or maybe you don’t even want to? 

Do you sometimes feel like your journey with your horse lacks a place in the western world? 

Today’s episode is dedicated to those riders who often feel unrepresented – the ones who ride for the love of the horse, not for the ribbons or accolades.

In this heartfelt episode, I dive into the myriad joys and profound connections that come from simply being with your horse. We’ll explore the unbreakable bonds forged in quiet moments, the peace found in early morning rides through nature, and the resilience built through overcoming setbacks and injuries. I share my personal journey of rediscovering my love for horses beyond the show pen and how horsemanship is a lifelong journey of growth, not perfection.

It’s about finding fulfillment in every ride, every lesson, and every quiet moment spent with your horse. I’ll share insights on starting a young horse, exploring new events, and even the magic of watching your children ride your heart horse.

Join me as we embrace the beauty of horsemanship beyond the glitz and glamor of the show pen. Let’s celebrate the unique paths we take with our horses and the strong mental game that helps us shine, no matter where we are on our journey. 

If you’re ready to dive deeper into the true joys of riding and build a mental game that supports your growth, tune in now. Your journey to becoming a more thoughtful, connected, and confident rider starts here.
