Are you stuck in a negative rut? Is your self-talk super critical and not so helpful? Is your overthinking causing you not to ride as well as you know you can in competition?
Do you feel like you’ve lost your confidence? That you really want to compete or try a new event or go to that clinic, but you just aren’t sure of yourself or your horse?
Do you worry about bad things that could happen with your horse, or worry about what other people are thinking about you? Is your horse picking up on your nerves and getting tense too?
Do you have high expectations for yourself and your horse? Do you feel pressured to ride and perform well, and that pressure actually makes you ride worse?

Hi, I'm Chevy. As a lifelong horsewoman (and also farm wife and Mama to two little cowboys) I understand that being a horsewoman isn't just a hobby. It is a lifestyle. I enjoy helping horsewomen apply positive psychology techniques to enjoy their horsemanship journey and achieve their dreams.
I understand the unique struggles that horsewomen face because I face them too. I have felt afraid in the saddle. I have felt nervous and anxious. I have experienced what it feels like to not be confident. After my first son was born, I was terrified in the saddle. And no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't make myself relax. It wasn't that I didn't have horse knowledge or horsemanship skills-before my kids were born I trained wild mustangs for Mustang Makeovers. It wasn't that my horses were unbroke or naughty-they were quiet, gentle ranch horses. The problem was all in my own head. And it was so frustrating. I wanted to be able to lope across a field to gather our cattle. I wanted to be able to relax and ride down the trail with my husband. I wanted to be able to show my horses again.
That is what led me to study mental toughness and positive psychology. Because I love horses, and imagining a life where I didn't ride was not an option. So I began my own journey to rebuild my self-confidence, to overcome the negative self-talk and doubts. And I learned that by mastering simple mental skills I could again ride without fear. I could again ride into a show pen feeling focused instead of nervous.
Along the way I discovered that horses and life are the same. By focusing on what I needed to do to feel more positive in the saddle, I also started to feel more positive with my life in general. It is a cycle-if our life is in balance, if we as a person are more positive, then our horsemanship will improve too.
Along my journey to confidence, I discovered that I wasn't alone. That other cowgirls like me faced the same challenges and lack of confidence-whether it was due to injury, having a family, or being out of the saddle for awhile. And just knowing that I wasn't alone was so healing for me, and I knew that helping others regain their confidence was part of my purpose along my own horsemanship journey. So I studied Life Coaching, and became certified as a Confidence Coach and Master Coach through the Transformation Academy, so that I could improve my coaching skills and make the road to confidence smoother for you than it was for me, struggling by myself.
That is why I created my Get Gritty courses-to share with you the process that helped me change from scared to ride, to able to lope across the pasture on a loose rein. These are the same steps that I took, the same skills that I learned, all proven effective by the science of positive psychology, and put together in an easy to follow, step-by-step process to empower you to be more confident as taught in my coaching certification courses. Because if I can overcome these struggles to be more positive in my life, find the fun along my horsemanship journey, and be a confident cowgirl again, so can you! Because horses are more than a hobby. It's a lifestyle. And to succeed and be happier along this bumpy ride, we need to get gritty.
