Rider Confidence

Have you ever felt anxious, scared or nervous when riding?

  • Perhaps you’ve had a fall from your horse and now feel scared to get back in the saddle

  • Maybe you’ve had a break from riding, and feel frustrated that you’ve lost your confidence

  • It could be that you’d love to hack out in open spaces, but you’re worried that your horse will get over-excited and you’ll lose control

  • Or even something so 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

So who am I?

My name is Alison Buttery and I work with riders who have lost their confidence and who are experiencing nerves, anxiety and fear when riding their horses. I have ridden and competed for many years, and I’ve had my fair share of confidence challenges. I know first hand how tricky it can be to recover physically and mentally from injuries, accidents and scary moments!

I’m not only an experienced freelance British Horse Society Accredited Professional Coach (Stage 4), but also a multi-certified Rider Mindset & Confidence Coach. I can help you learn how to get from feeling fearful and scared to becoming calm and confident, so that you can start to feel that excitement and joy around riding again. 

I want to share with you some of my most effective techniques and strategies, so that you can apply them to your specific situation, and you can begin your journey to becoming a more confident rider.

What will you learn?

  • What fear really is and how it affects your riding
  • Simple and effective techniques to manage your fear so you can take back control
  • Ways to challenge your negative thoughts and emotions 
  • How to bounce back from negative experiences

I will show you how to manage your fears so that you can get back to doing what you love. You’ll learn what fear is, how and why fear affects riders, alongside practical and mindset techniques that you can implement at any time. 

“Alison made this course so interesting and not just a lecture! Fascinating information about the brain without overloading you with too much info. So useful having top tips from someone that generally knows her stuff really well! She always uses examples from her own experiences through her BHS coach hat which is great. Interactive elements were great to make sure we were listening and absorbing all the info. If you need that confidence boost or have had a nasty accident (like myself) Alison’s course is a must! Highly recommend!”

“After the session I felt a lot more positive about dealing with my confidence issues. It was very helpful to have techniques such as the breathing exercises to use. All the subjects covered made a lot of sense and Alison was very sympathetic and understanding.”

“This course allowed me to reflect on what was actually holding me back and causing my confidence issues and then gave me practical skills to use in dealing with anxiety when I am on my horse. Using the strategies from the course I had the confidence to hack my horse out alone for the very first time the next day. I cannot recommend the course highly enough.”

How can I make the most of this Masterclass?

Will I really stop feeling scared by watching this Masterclass?

Here’s the thing… watching this Masterclass 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 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 🙂
