Riding Confidence Course with Dr. Tracey Cole 23rd to 26th May 2022

Make 2022 the summer that counted. The summer where you learnt confident riding and unlearnt the doubts, what ifs and anxiety. The summer you found a new trust and bond between you and your horse, because you changed how you think and how you act. Join us on this 3 night/2 day rider confidence course. See photos of previous course here.

The training starts by opening up the mind to change, persuading the mind that there is another way to ride. Then we begin to change unhelpful habits and create a new way of thinking and riding. Together we remove old perceptions and giving you the mental tools to be confident, no matter your riding goals, how long you’ve felt ill at ease or how the fears were established.

Begin to enjoy your riding and the freedom to ride the way you know you really can

This is a fun, fully supported learning. You are taken through different techniques and then taught to do them for yourself. You will learn methods to apply whilst mounted or unmounted, so that you can maintain your newfound confidence at home as well as on holiday! More than that, you learn quick, easy and effective techniques to call upon when you’re in the saddle, as well as a variety of unmounted mental preparation techniques.

About Dr. Tracey Cole

“My name is Dr Tracey Cole and I’m an accredited Trainer and Master Coach of NLP (neurolinguistic programming), Hypnotherapy and Time Line Therapy™.  As a former nervous rider, particularly when it came to hacking, mounting, competing, jumping (actually, almost everything!), I was amazed that I overcame my fears using these techniques. That was something that happened to other people. I thought my mind was too stubborn and my nerves too ingrained to ever really enjoy all aspects of riding. I thought that I should know my limits and that other people went out and about enjoying their rides.

I always had a huge feeling of relief when I got off and I mistook that for enjoyment!! Whilst I was actually on the horse, well, I was sometimes frozen like a statue wondering why I put myself through it. Using a combination of techniques, I was very, very surprised (and delighted) that I overcame my fears – to the extent that I couldn’t get them back!”
