A safe, supportive community for Equestrian Professionals to receive mental & emotional support, and engage in critical reflection in order to raise issues, explore problems, and discover new ways of handling both professional situations and oneself.
So, here’s the thing.
Most of us working as equestrian professionals do so as a solo operation. And even if what we are doing on paper looks like it should be simple enough in terms of expectations and output, experience tells us that the reality is anything but that.
Inevitably, over time, we discover that it’s not just physical skills that we’re teaching (in the case of an instructor or coach), or wellness we are facilitating in the horse (in the case of bodyworkers or vets), but we’re also met with the emotional concerns, anxieties, and vulnerabilities of
everyone involved also. And this makes it an infinitely more complicated affair. It’s also a lot for any one individual to be expected to hold.
Layer on top of that the fact we have our own stuff to deal with and process, the strength and vulnerability it takes to put yourself out there on a regular basis and it’s easy to end up in a place where you feel disillusioned, tired and burnt out.
JoyRide Professionals is a support and mentorship group facilitated by me, Jane Pike, to provide emotional and mental support and guidance to like-minded professionals working in the Equestrian Industry.

Why Work With Me?
For the past ten years, I’ve been working in the Equestrian Industry as an equestrian mindset and mental skills coach. My approach is founded on understandings of the mind and emotional brain, movement education, and biomechanics in conjunction with nervous system awareness.
I have worked with literally thousands of riders through my online program, JoyRide, and have coached hundreds of riders 1:1. On a daily basis, I am fielding questions around trauma, anxiety, and confidence issues and have extensive experience around what it means to maintain physical, emotional, and mental wellness.
As a business owner and breadwinner in my family, I also know what it takes to build a successful business from scratch and be actively working with clients on a daily basis. The inevitable ups and downs can take its toll.
The equestrian industry needs people out there (people like you!) who have the best interests and welfare of everyone at heart. My aim with JoyRide Professionals is to be the touchstone and support you need to take care of yourself and be able to show up for what’s important to you, both personally and professionally, well into the future.
