Are you paying thousands of dollars a year for a horse that just sits in the pasture?

What is regaining your confidence worth to you?


Horsewomen I work with list lack of confidence as the biggest barrier to achieving their dreams.

Horse activities that were once your dream, your passion, are no longer fun. When you don't feel confident, you might experience sweaty palms, upset stomach, shortness of breath, intense fear and anxiety. For those of you that show your horse, it certainly becomes difficult to perform at your best! For some horsewomen it becomes so terrible that they no longer want to ride.

You may have been told to just get over it, it is all in your head, and to just get back on the horse. Or that all fear is caused by a lack of knowledge, so to fix it you just need to take more lessons. You may have even tried many different things to get your confidence back, but nothing seems to help.

If this is you, don't despair. It doesn't have to be this way!

In this Get Gritty Coaching Course, we will work to cultivate your trust in your self, your horse, and your unique horsemanship journey so that you can ride with complete confidence. The mental skills and techniques taught in this course are the key to overcoming fear, anxiety and nervousness so that you can enjoy your horse again!

Take back control of your horsemanship journey. You have the ability to go after your dreams. Trust yourself, and step into the saddle. It is time to get gritty!

Who this course is for:
  • Horsewomen that want to Get Gritty and be courageous and confident with their horse.
