"whether you think you can or you think you can't... you're right"  Henry Ford

"... horses should be trained in such a way that they not only love their riders, but look forward to the time they are with them..."  Xenophon 400BC

Welcome To Empathy Riding

Welcome to Empathy Rider, dedicated to helping riders get the most from their relationship with their horse through either therapy or training or a combination of both. 

Using psychology for sport can help whether you ride for pleasure or as a serious competitor.  How we deal with our thoughts, feelings, emotions and reactions to situations can have a massive impact on an animal as sensitive as a horse.  We can reach mental blocks in our progress or keep having the same unwanted result (even on different horse) – this is a sign that we have programmed our behaviour into an undesirable state.  

Having spent over thirty years riding, I know only too well the highs and lows associated with horses, including loss of confidence and anxiety and over-whelming nerves when competing.  My aim is to support, encourage, and enable riders to use the power of their unconscious mind to be confident, happy and successful in their riding.not sure what this is
