Crack the Confidence Code

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. 

My brand new monthly membership, called Crack the Confidence Code, combines the best in rider psychology, mindset and confidence training strategies and techniques. It is your comprehensive guide to creating a new, positive, strong and sustainable mindset and confidence around riding, so that you can finally do what you love.

“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 S.

“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 L.

“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 F.

“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 H.

“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 C.

“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.”

Alison C.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon do I get access to the programme?

You’ll get access to the first module of Crack the Confidence Code programme as soon as you log in, via the member’s area on my website, with each of the following modules released on a monthly basis. You’ll 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’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… joining the Crack the Confidence Memberhsip alone will not mean that you’ll become a more confident rider!

You have to commit to taking action, and practising the techniques… repeatedly. 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!

It’s down to you 🙂
