Do you want to take your riding to the next level?....
The excitement of horses is a passion in the blood, but does your nervousness hold you back at all? Are rides spoiled at the thought of bucking, rearing, napping or jumping? Or would you just like to have that 'edge' to take your riding up to the next level?
People often find that they reach a "plateau" in their riding or sporting achievements - a barrier which seems to be the extent of their courage, skills, personality or abilities. These ceilings can be at any level, from getting out on a hack, to breaking into a canter, or in facing drops, banks and ditches at top level competition. Karl is a qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner whose methods can easily show how these limits are actually stepping stones - necessary stepping stones - to be harnessed and used for even greater success!
We are in a unique position, as we have enjoyed many years of experience at the extremes of horse riding, performing jousting and trick riding shows around the world.
In our Rider Confidence course we can offer a unique combination of techniques, activities and approaches to eliminate fear and stress, and enable you to move up to the next level and beyond.
But I am scared I'll fall off! - Don't be!
We will provide a program of familiarisation - rearing, falling, balancing and rebalancing on the move, and even including falling horses - along with trying alternative saddles other than the common English Easy-out!
Our horses are trained to rear on command, to fall when asked and to support balanced and unbalanced riders - a set of abilities that YOU can use to build your experiences and confidence in a safe environment. NO other facility can offer such a unique package to transform your capabilities and confidence - leading to horse-riding success, whatever your discipline!
This is an opportunity that cannot be found anywhere else - unique and effective - but this amazing offer isn't finished yet! - Karl is a qualified Sports Hypnotherapist, and an unbeatable Rider Confidence hypnosis session is included in the course!
Sounds good? Then act NOW!
What can I expect on the course?
We begin with identifying our specific goals for the day, and subsequently explore and discuss the fear responses and associations which can in the past have led us to self sabotage of our efforts and goals. Then it's to the first hypnosis session to reduce the impact of past negative experiences, and open ourselves to wealth of possibilities the day offers.
We then move out to meet our horses, and try out a few different saddles. The morning course will be devoted to experiencing and dealing with rearing, and then we'll turn our attention to issues concerning balance and posture..
The Unimportance of a Correct Seat!
Use our horses special talents to learn how to regain balance without any fuss, fear or bother. Its a strange opposition that the better a riders seat and posture, the more they are thrown when that support is temporarily lost. Using our trick saddles, you will not only lose your seat, but move completely out of the saddle and back in whilst on the move! And of course you will fix the experience in your mind that losing your seat is not the end of the ride!
After lunch the falling rider section will cover how to fall from the saddle as the professionals do to keep you safe from harm. The falling horses section will be covered in step by step instruction and discussion, gradually leading through laying a horse from the ground, keeping a fallen horse down, laying a horse from a mounted position and correct responses when faced with a falling horse. The experience of having a horse go down from under you is exhilarating and empowering - and a tool for your horsemanship which cannot be supplied from anywhere else.
The afternoon will also include a presentation of Intuitive Communication as part of the falling section.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy - Achieve your Goals!
Before you leave the day there will be a last hypnosis session, and you will return home possessing the tools, skills and experiences to banish limiting fears and ride joyfully into a fantastic future for you and your horse!
The nature of this course demands our full attention on our clients, so we must limit numbers per group to six persons. Course starts 10.30a.m - 4.30pm.
Please note: you will be required to mount from the ground on this course.
Course leaders - Karl Greenwood, Zana Cousins-Greenwood.

Be warned! It'll change your life with horses forever.
Just to say a big thank you for the fantastic lesson last week. It was brilliant and great for Sharon to see me doing scary things with a smile on my face and laughing. I will definitely be booking another time with you in the near future.

Just wanted to say a big thankyou...the confidence day and “It’s normal just ride the horse” has made a huge difference to me and my Welsh cob mare Star. I can’t believe I am beginning to jump her and hack her out. She is totally different as I am not gripping and tightening. I can’t thank you enough!
Warm regards Polly
