It Takes Two to Tango

My belief as an equestrian mindset coach, is

"Get your mind right and the rest will follow."

What is Mindset?

The established set of attitudes held by someone.

A mindset is a series of self-perceptions or beliefs people hold about themselves. These determine your behaviour, your outlook and most of all your mental attitude. For example, believing you are either a 'confident rider' or you are a 'nervous rider', will have a huge influence on your actions, the effect it has on your horse and therefore on your actual riding experience overall.

About Tanja

How can Mindset Coaching help you?

As a mindset coach I can help you to achieve a different perspective to your riding capability and knowledge.
If you believe you are not good enough, or if you have a set of negative predictions of what you think might happen next, I can help you 'see and achieve different outcomes.

How do we do that?

By teaching you to identify the negative experiences of your past and taking the spotlight off them and instead, finding those empowering moments in your past and lighting them up.
When you change your mindset, you change your energy and when you change your energy your body position changes too.

What is Rider Posture training?

The position in which someone holds their body when sitting in the saddle.
Rider posture training is a series of steps to balance and align the rider with the horse.
When the rider is stiff and ridged, the horse is stiff and ridgid
When the rider is uneven in their seat, the horse will also be uneven in their attempt to adjust to the rider's position.
However, when the rider is supple and balanced, the horse will become supple and balanced too.
The perfect riding experience.

How can Rider Position training help you?

Learning the very subtle ways how to adjust your body will enable the horse to move more freely and in better balance.

How is this achieved?

- Positioning your pelvis to align with your horse's shoulders.
- Straightening your ribcage to straighten the horse.
- Opening your hips to activate your horses hind legs.
