Do any of these experiences feel familiar?

  • You feel nervous, anxious or scared when hacking out, jumping or riding in the arena?

  • You’ve had a fall or a bad experience, and you’re desperate to get back to riding and doing what you love with your horse, but you can’t seem to get past it.

  • You’re really hard on yourself, your mind is full of negative thought patterns and you relentlessly beat yourself up for not being good enough, or for letting your horse down…

  • Something as simple as putting your foot in the stirrup to mount fills you with dread, and you’re too scared to even get on and ride.

Any of these experiences will make you feel fed up and stuck, and perhaps you just can’t see a way to overcome your fears and loss of confidence.

Whatever your situation right now, I want you to know that you are not alone.

I meet so many riders who are struggling with a loss of confidence about riding, and they have tried all sorts of ways to feel better, but nothing has really changed.

They simply haven’t got to the root of the problem…

Just imagine for a moment…

  • That you feel a sense of anticipation and excitement about riding your horse, and cannot wait to get going. 

  • Somehow when you’re riding, all your stresses and worries fall away, so you’re calmer and waay more content.
  • You’re in control of what you think, feel and do. You’re in flow, focussing completely on your riding and your horse. 

  • You’re working as a partnership; communication between you and your horse is effortless and easy.

  • You know that you have everything you need, to manage whatever situation occurs right now. You know that you always have a choice about what happens next.

  • Whether you’re feeling exhilarated about cantering across a field, moving up a level show jumping or simply achieving some amazing work with your horse in the arena, this is everything you ever dreamed of when riding.

So what do current members say?

“I’m so glad I found this course! When I started, I could not understand why I had suddenly lost my confidence as a rider and I was concerned that I was not the right person to bring on my young horse.

The course format is perfectly suited to self-directed study and the gentle humour and compassion Alison displays in the training videos perfectly complement the workbooks for each module.

I have learned a lot about myself through the programme. It has helped me to work through the underlying cause of my riding problem and to stop being quite so hard on myself.

I have been able to acknowledge the impact that grieving for a treasured equine companion of many years had on my ability to connect with a new horse, and the impact this had on my ability to work with her in a positive way.

This, in turn has allowed me to open my heart and mind to my young horse and for us to move forward with restored confidence. Our bond and confidence in each other is growing by the day.

Thank you, Alison.”

Claire

“The course has had a huge impact on me. When I started I could not even face getting on my horse, and when I did I was a nervous wreck and was just glad when it was all over.

Now I am excited about riding, I am back to schooling, cantering, hacking out solo, and even taking her to clinics. I have realised how outside influences had really affected my self belief and self worth and ultimately may riding. I have been able to resolve not just my riding issues but a number of other issues that were affecting my life and it shows just how everything is linked.

My health is better, my mindset is better and I feel happy in myself. I am more self aware and now have the strategies to deal with issues and certainly can recognise my behaviour and can recognise it in other people.

I am a coach and having been through this experience myself gives me some credibility when I say to my clients that I have experienced a loss of confidence and have found ways to help get it back and have strategies to deal with things.”

Tracey

“This course is extremely comprehensive and of great value in understanding how the mind works and providing tools and techniques to help develop the positive mindset essential for confident riding.

It is a joy to progress through the modules learning different aspects of self development and the value of reflection and searching for the positives and learning points to build a strong foundation and a path forward.”

Janet

“This course is exactly what I needed to make positive changes to my mindset, not just in my riding but in my life in general.

It made me realise that I was holding myself back and that actually I can achieve anything I want if I put in the time and effort.

This course has given me the direction and tools to be a more calm, confident and positive rider.”

Laura

“Just a little update to say we’ve been having a great time out and about.

I’ve cantered on a hack a few times now! We’ve also been working on our groundwork and our partnership. My daughter has done cross country too, which was amazing.

My mindset has definitely shifted. I feel like I can handle things now, and fear isn’t holding me back. I’m still working on it, but now I have the techniques to help me.

Thanks for the great resources – I’m going to keep going back to them as I know I’ll need to regularly keep on top of it.”

Julie

“I attended the online “crash course” in improving riding confidence back in July 20 when a series of refusals whilst jumping left me quaking at the idea of confronting the dreaded jumps courses. After a suggestion to look at the course from a riding friend, I followed the online course religiously over the 5 weeks and loved it!

My riding confidence was starting to improve but I wanted and still needed more…

I signed up to the Rider Confidence course and am loving it.

It is even more in-depth with so many videos and resources to access at your own leisure.

We have a weekly live facebook check-in section where members questions are often showcased with specific help/advice given to them. 

I am now having weekly jumping lessons again and am really enjoying seeing mine and Macs progress.

Yes, we have still had the odd refusal/blip but I don’t come away feeling lost/terrified/totally useless etc. I come away thinking “what did I do well?”, “how can I learn from this?”, “are there any positives to take away from the experience?”.

I am confident that my riding will continue to improve as half the battle has always been in my head.

This course is FINALLY giving me a new mindset to tackling riding issues and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone else who feels they lack in riding confidence in someway.”

Not sure if the Crack the Confidence Code Membership is right for you?

The Crack the Confidence Code Membership is for you if…

  • You’re ready to change how you feel about riding, so that you can go and have so much fun with your horse!

  • You’re ready to learn new skills and try different tools, techniques & strategies which will help you become more confident, calm and empowered around riding

  • You have big (or little!), exciting dreams and goals around riding that you’d love to achieve

  • You’d love to let go of the nerves and anxiety you feel around riding, and learn how to manage your fear

  • You desperately want to move on from a fall or a bad experience, and you’re desperate to get back to riding and doing what you love with your horse

  • You want to get rid of those mindset blocks and limiting beliefs that keep you stuck in an ever-decreasing comfort zone

The Crack the Confidence Code Membership is NOT for you if…

  • You want a ‘magic bullet’ which will fix all your problems

  • You want someone to fix everything for you, rather than doing the work

  • You’re not willing to take action and explore what works (and what doesn’t)

  • You want to stay as a nervous, anxious, fearful rider

  • You can find all the excuses in the world why this won’t work for you

  • You don’t want to achieve your goals and dreams

  • You’ve already tried a confidence course / hypnotherapy / NLP /  tapping / herbal rememdies / read all the books etc., so you know that nothing will really work for you

It might seem strange, me trying to talk you OUT of becoming a member – but truly if the Membership is not the right fit for you, then it will not do either of us any favours. However, I know that when you join and commit to actively taking part in the training and resources, that you will overcome your confidence and mindset challenges – and that all starts by making sure the Membership is right for you before you join.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon do I get access to the programme?

You’ll get access to the all the resources as soon as you have joined! You’ll also be able to join the Facebook group straight away, where you’ll find all kinds of rider mindset & confidence resources and get to meet current members of the community.

I don’t think I have the time to do all the training!

The good news is that you don’t have to! Yes there are LOTS of resources available to members, but you are certainly NOT expected to do all of them all at once (unless you’d like to obviously!). The key thing to remember is the changes that YOU would like to make, the challenges that YOU want to overcome, and focus on the resources that will help you to do exactly that. My advice is always to work through the core Crack the Confidence Code course FIRST, then pick and choose from the other resources to help you become the calm, confident & positive rider you’d love to be.

There are no ‘assessments’, no deadlines, no pressure to work at a certain speed; all the resources are available via the member’s area on the website for you to access in your own time. This means that you can progress at your own pace, when it is most convenient for you.

I’m nervous to invest in this, will it be worth it?

There is no minimum contract for the membership, and you can cancel at any time after the first payment!

When you make the decision to join the membership, you are committing to building a positive, growth mindset and to getting out of your own way, so that you can do what you love… and that is priceless!

Will you guarantee that I’ll become a more confident rider if I join the membership?

Here’s the thing… I know what works and I know that this membership has already helped a large number of riders to build their confidence and achieve their goals and dreams! However, joining the Crack the Confidence Membership alone will not mean that you’ll become a more confident rider!

You have to commit to practising the techniques. I cannot wave a magic wand and suddenly make you overcome your fears (I wish!), but I can give you the mindset tools, techniques and strategies to help you make the changes you need to make to become more confident.

The riders who become more confident are those that take 100% responsibility and take action, not allowing themselves to make excuses.

So what I do know is that I can help you learn what you need to do to manage your fears around riding, but what I can’t do is guarantee that you will do the work! 🙂

How can I access the programme?

The Crack the Confidence Code membership will be available via the member’s area on my website, along with all the other membership resources and information.

How can I make the most of this programme?

Make time each week or month to work through each module of the Crack the Confidence Code programme, and the resources that are most relevant to your situation. The key is not just to learn and understand, but to take action and implement; you’ll only get results if you do the work! Also, get involved in the members-only Facebook group, where you can share your progress, ask questions, and be inspired by other members of the group.

What level of rider is this membership for?

Crack the Confidence Code Membership is for any rider, at any level, from anywhere around the world. Think of it as the equivalent of riding lessons… but for your mind! You will be able to tailor the information and techniques to your own situation, so everyone is very welcome.

What if I change my mind?

There is no minimum contract for the membership, and you can cancel at any time after the first monthly / annual payment, via the Member’s Area on the website. No refunds will be provided.

Please note, you will continue to have access to all the membership resources, community and the Crack the Confidence Code programme for as long as you stay a member (with monthly or annual payments). You will not retain any access the membership resources, community or the CCC programme when you leave or stop payments.
