Do you sometimes feel tense during horse riding?
Maybe it’s because of a nasty fall from the past, maybe because you have to go into the test, people are watching or because the wind is blowing hard.
These are all examples of why riders sometimes feel tension or nerves.
This tension has a function and can be very useful because it makes you faster and more alert. However, it can also turn into paralyzing tension. Then you notice that you cramp, your breathing gets stuck and you give your aids unnecessarily strong. You’ve probably already experienced that a simple breathing exercise does not fully work in the moment itself. That’s because you don’t address the origin of the tension. Tension is caused in your brain and then expresses itself in your body.
In this masterclass I will teach you that this tension is caused by your own – negative – thoughts and how you can deal with them. I will give you insights into how your body and brain work, but especially how you can reduce tension. I share different techniques that you can apply when you’re nervous.
Enjoy riding with relaxation, in a body that can sit relaxed and, above all, with great pleasure to work in harmony with your horse.
