Hi! I’m Jane…
I help you gain the skills you need to ride with confidence and joy, and the mental fitness to be focused, on form and in the zone for competition.
The question that motivates my work and ongoing learning?
How can I be the rider and horseperson that my horse needs me to be? How can I leave my emotions at the gate and have the mental strength and balance that I need to allow both of us to flourish as a partnership? How can I be the rider that my horses deserve?
On some level, it might be hard to imagine that the dreams that you have for your riding are possible. If that’s the case, I will tell you a little secret of the pros: it isn’t. Confidence, mental strength, focus, clarity, these are all skills. Skills that are teachable, skills that are learnable. I know because I have experienced both sides of the coin.
I’ve read, studied, trained with the best in the business. These days, I’m a qualified Equestrian mental skills coach, NLP Practitioner, Time Line Therapy Practitioner and certified hypnotherapist. I have worked with hundreds of riders all over the world, from beginners to elite competitors, helping them break through the mental barriers that have been holding them back from doing what it is they want to be doing with their riding.
So what exactly do I do? I work with riders as their mental skills coach. If you want to get physically stronger; if you want to improve your jumping technique; if you want better dressage scores – then you hire a trainer who can give you proven methods and skills to enhance your progress and performance. But when it’s your mind that needs strengthening you need a different type of coach.
I help people identify the processes that bring them results and give them the skills to increase their mental fortitude and enhance the mind’s ability to focus.
I work with both recreational and competitive/ professional riders, giving them the skills and strategy they need to ride with confidence and produce the results that they dream of for their riding. I do this in a variety of ways: through my online membership platform, JoyRide; my group coaching courses and 1: 1 Coaching.
I have helped literally hundreds of riders gain their riding freedom back by giving them the skills to increase confidence, banish self-doubt, and work with an effective strategy.
My work merges all of my passions and I never tire of it. I love getting to the bottom of issues, making strategies, taking action. It really makes me sad how many people hold themselves back and stop themselves doing what they love through lack of confidence or fear about what other people are thinking. It’s terrifying to think that we could limit our lives based on that. So, I’m all in. I’m pretty invested in the people that I work with and consider most of them friends now. They are part of my family, my team. Everyone needs someone on side, and I want to be that person for those who have confidence issues or want to be the best they can be in their sport.
If you are looking for to increase your confidence; if you want to get in the zone for competition. If you need an effective strategy to move you forward, I can help you get there.
Your mindset is what will allow you to make the leap to awesome. Let’s give you the skills to go out there and make it happen.
