What you tell yourself becomes your reality

mindset Jun 10, 2024

There's an excellent quote that I share regularly in my trainings, ebooks, courses etc, that I think really helps to crystallise where you are with your mindset...

Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you are right! 

Read it a second time...it really is impactful, and especially in connection with our horses. 

If you have a negative mindset, you tell yourself negative stories and words continually, tell yourself you can't do xyz, creating fear and anxiety in your body,...

Getting your mojo back with your horse!

mindset Jun 03, 2024

We have all been there...making excuses not to ride, sabotaging ourselves so that we don't have to do the xyz that we are nervous about, allowing the overwhelm to take over, and putting focus everywhere else apart from the actual riding...

And it turns into falling out of love with your horse or horse ownership, and it's actually much more common that you might think - lots of the horse owners that I work with in my coaching part of my business are in this exact situation...they have lost the...

...AND how to overcome it! 

  • Do you find that whenever issues arise with or around your horse, your brain goes straight to the WORST possible outcome?? 
  • And you can't think clearly or logically in those moments, it's like something takes over your brain??
  • And the feelings that come along with the worst case scenario thinking are heavy and negative, maybe even staying with you for long periods of time afterwards? 

Well first, you are not alone. This type of thinking, jumping to...

Developing trust with your horse

equine connection mindset Apr 10, 2024

As a qualified mindset coach, I work with horse owners who are struggling with fear, anxiety, negative thoughts and feelings, overwhelm, procrastination, and feeling like they have fallen out of love with horse ownership.

And one of the crucial pieces of the jigsaw that is usually missing, is trust between the horse and owner. And not knowing how to get that back. Therefore being stuck, and probably avoiding riding, keeping the horse at arms length in terms of connection etc.

Our brain is...

How your thoughts and feelings directly affect your horse

equine connection mindset Mar 04, 2024

Your horse is super sensitive, and picks up on all of your feelings!

So when you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, rushed, frustrated, irritated, etc...even if you think you're doing a good job of hiding it, your horse picks up those vibes. 

Horses live in the moment, they are grounded, and very much 'in their body'. They are consciously aware of everything around them, due to them being prey in the wild, so they have awareness of potential incoming danger. 

Sensitive and aware of...

Straightness in the horse...why it's so important!

Horses are born crooked...left or right handed so to speak, and in simple terms it's up to us as their rider / trainer / rehabber, to train our horse in such a way that we develop symmetry into their movement, to help prevent injury. 

This is a huge topic, and it's super important to be aware of and improve with our horses. Standard walk-trot-canter exercise and straight line work doesn't improve the crookedness pattern. And if we don't address the crookedness pattern at its source...

Mindset with horses

mindset Oct 30, 2023

How is your mindset when it comes to your horse...good or bad, positive or negative? 

Are you aware of your own thought patterns and how they affect your time with your horse? 

Did you know that you are actually in control of your own thoughts and feelings, even the really negative ones, and with some daily work you can massively improve your mindset! 

Old outdated thoughts and 'programming' can be changed, to free you up so you can enjoy being with your horse every single...

Understanding your horseโ€™s body language, with Debbie Busby, Equine Clinical Behaviourist

equine behaviour Oct 02, 2023

What is body language?

Body language is the display of instinctive or learned physical signals that help horses communicate with each other and with us. Communication is about sending a message that is received and understood by somebody else, and communication between horses and humans is a two-way process; horses learn our communication signals, and we can learn their signals; what they are saying to us. Horses have lots of ways of communicating via body language and they do it very well,...
