JoyRide is a unique, rider focused program that provides a body-based approach to re-patterning your nervous system.
Many of the struggles we face originate from a nervous system that is stuck in sympathetic, or fight/flight mode.
Together we work to shift physical and emotional behaviours and experiences that see you living and riding from your survival nervous system and move you towards a state of being that is emotionally responsive and physically adaptable.
You’ll develop a grounded, real-world understanding of your nervous system and how it’s affecting you, both on the ground and in the saddle- mentally, emotionally and physically.
Feeling anxious, overwhelmed, frustrated or afraid in your riding, life, or both…
The ability to stay creative, resourceful and switched on when you are working together with your horse
Stuck in a cycle of ground-hog day patterns which you can’t seem to change, no matter how hard you try
The ability to consistently find your calm, maintain your centre and reprogram habitual and reflexive responses so you can get out there and do what you dream of doing with your horse
Feeling unbalanced, one-sided or discombobulated in the saddle
Establishing motor patterns and movements that allow you to find physical balance and harmony with your horse
JoyRide combines biomechanics, movement and mindset skills with nervous system awareness to create a emotional, mental and physical adaptability & responsiveness, specifically for equestrians.
JoyRide is a monthly membership program that combines biomechanics, movement and mindset skills together with nervous system awareness to promote optimal functioning on every level- emotionally, mentally and physically.
The program itself is experiential and you get loads of hands on support, through a combination of weekly Q&A sessions, live movement sessions and a vibrant Facebook community.
You will gain…
This includes the foundational elements of the program that will inform all of our work together moving forward.
In module one, you’re going to learn:
The Tackbox is where we really dive into the mindset side of things. I consider JoyRide to be an apporach that focuses on the two main strands; our mindset, and our physiology. This is where we begin to hone in on the former.
In module two, you’re going to learn:
This is where we’ll trouble-shoot specific challenges and common scenarios we find ourselves in with our horses (and without them!)
Some examples from module three include:
The Movement Library is an ever-evolving resource of sessions dedicated to nervous system health, biomechanics and motor repatterning.
Some of the things we focus on in module four include:
Get the answers to your question, reach out for support, brainstorm your challenges and get unstuck.
Don’t waste time and energy going round in circles trapped inside your own head. Let me know what’s up, I’ll answer your questions & we’ll get things moving in the right direction.
Can’t make it live? No problem! Everything is recorded for you to catch up with when it suits you.
JoyRide is a highly experiential, movement-based program. As part of your membership, you have access to weekly live movement that focus on nervous system health, movement education and motor re-patterning. Sessions are all recorded and added to the Movement Library for those unable to make it live.
Exclusive access to the Stable Hours weekly, member’s only podcast that allows you to listen to our Live Q&A sessions on the go!
Being a member of JoyRide is a pre-requisite to working one on one together, and applying for the 6 Month Mentoring program in Nervous System Biomechanics
I work with riders to change their nervous system patterning from reflexive and reactive to adaptable and responsive.
I’ve spent the last decade working with riders successfully helping them improve their confidence, overcome fear and anxiety and help them move beyond physical and emotional patterns that limit and restrict their potential and possibilities with their horse.
JoyRide is uniquely rider-focused, allowing us to develop the mental, emotional and physical skills we need to create a wholehearted and fulfilling relationship with our horses, no matter what we want to do together.
No! JoyRide is for you no matter what your skill level or experience, regardless of your discipline or interest, and for competitors and non-competitors alike. No matter what “sort” of rider you consider yourself to be, you will be welcomed, embraced and supported through this process.
When you sign up, you are free to cancel at any time. Please note, I don’t refund payments for changes of mind (and will do my best to make sure you get the most out of it possible!).
This question is more common than you would think, and the answer is no. The work will do together begins away from your horse and gets you to a place where you feel more confident and resilient to deal with what presents. If you are on an enforced break, are coming back from injury, don’t have your own horse or anything in between, you will still benefit from and be able to apply this work.
No! We have JoyRide members from literally all over the world. The content is all online, so as long as you have an internet connection, you are good to go!
All live sessions are recorded and available for you later, so if for some reason life or time differences don’t allow you to attend in the moment, you can watch them when you are ready and able!
JoyRide is entirely self-paced, and there is certainly no expectation from my end about where you should be up to when. Much of the work is applied and experiential; it’s a way of going about life and riding rather than something you do separate to life and riding.
That said, the movement work is very much a part of the experience, and you do get out of it what you put in.
Any live sessions we do are recorded and available for you when you are able to get to them, and progression does require you do some work. It’s not a quick fix process.
Fear not! This is not an online program where you are left to your own devices and have to figure it out alone. As part of your membership, you have access to the member’s only Facebook group. I am super hands on there, so if you let me know what’s up, I will do my best to sort it out for you.
