How often do you celebrate your riding achievements? I mean, really celebrate and acknowledge what you have done? I know many riders that will, when congratulated, reply with “Thank you, but {insert horse’s name] was brilliant today” or “Thank you, but it was really messy” or “ I could have done X, Y, Z better” or “God, it felt awful”. Sound familiar? 

How about acknowledging that YOU made X happen? Regardless of how big or small, you need to start taking responsibility for the things that go RIGHT as well as WRONG. 

I want you to find a whole list of ways in which you can celebrate and reward yourself for the things that you have achieved, without counteracting them with “yes, but…” 

Celebrate every tiny achievement, build yourself up and become a confident rider.
