Returning to Riding - Focusing on the Basics

You’ve decided to refocus your attention on your riding. You’re back in the saddle and rearing to go (well, maybe not quite rearing!). But knowing what to do and where to focus your attention can seem a little daunting. In fact, maybe it's feeling like there is just too much to do and too little time to do it in… If we were working together, either online or in-person, there are a few essentials that I would begin asking you to give your full attention to. Now, obviously this would vary...

Boundaries; How They Work for You In Your Riding

1/6/2020
More
Have you ever had a horse step on your heel while you were leading them? Or maybe it was your toe while tacking up or grooming? These are pretty memorable experiences due to the amount of pain they cause! Horses are great at being really transparent around the consequences of doing something, or not doing something. And if you have experienced some version of the above, it is due to ‘not’ doing something… Laying down boundaries with your horse. Boundaries are so important when it comes...

Have you ever considered all the different ways you communicate with your horse, every day? All of the aids you have at your disposal to ask your horse to do things the way you want him to do things. Imagine if you could become a little more mindful about what you are doing and how you are doing it… When you are with your horse, there are so many different aids you can use, such as:- Each time you begin working on a new aid, it has to learn how to blend with all of the aids you have been...

Your Mindset; What Do You Believe About Your Riding?

12/16/2019
More
I am fascinated by how our minds work. I love seeing the co-relation between our beliefs and thoughts play out in our physical day to day lives. Meeting and chatting with riders for the first time is one of my favorite things to do. I pay close attention. I love listening to the stories they tell me about themselves and their riding. So many riders have themselves convinced they cannot do something, and therefore take action from that place or that perspective. The place where the thing...

Weight Aids & Using Them With Intention & Focus

12/9/2019
More
Weight aids are often overlooked and underused by many riders. I want to help you begin to see how powerful your weight aids have the potential to be in your riding. I also want to use your weight aids to see demonstrate how power intention and focus have on your goals as well. Less is more where your weight aids are concerned. Unfortunately, many riders seem to throw everything they have behind a weigh aid when they think they should apply one. All this serves to do is unbalance both horse...

Have you ever considered how much you are either helping or hindering your horse when you’re riding? Do you wonder what you could do, today, to begin improving your influence in the saddle? Well, I am going to give you something fun to do in the saddle that will improve your riding - and put a smile on your face as well. I want you to begin figuring out how independent you are in the saddle when riding. You are going to do this by riding the light seat or two-point seat. Your bum out of...

1124 Which Type of Rider Are You?

11/25/2019
More
I believe that every rider or equestrian can be put into one of two categories. I know, a pretty big generalization! However, from working with thousands of riders, I have yet to meet someone who does not fall into one or the other. Knowing which category you fall into will help you to get clear on what your ‘next step’ is when it comes to developing your skills as a rider. I have named the two different types of riders as being either:- 1. Passengers 2. Influencers You see it all comes...

1123 Taking Action on What You Learn in Your Riding

11/18/2019
More
Learning is great. As a rider or equestrian, there is a never-ending stream of knowledge out there just waiting for you to dive into and begin exploring. However, learning can sometimes be the very thing that holds riders back from making progress in their riding. You see, learning is only really useful if you go and then implement what you learn. And it is the implementation that riders fall short. They fail to take action on what they learn. All their newly gained knowledge just remains...

1122 Overcoming Plateaus In Your Riding Progress

11/11/2019
More
It is inevitable. All riders find themselves there at some point in their riding journey. The point where progress stalls and the comfort of the plateau is no longer what they are looking for. Recognizing that you are feeling a little stuck is the key to making the necessary changes to ‘unsticking’ yourself. The key to starting working towards progress again. Before we dive into this topic, I just want to point out that this happens to all riders. It is absolutely inevitable. If you were...

1121 A Map for Progress in Your Riding

11/4/2019
More
Having a map often simplifies the journey. It helps plan a clear route from A to B. Riding is a journey. And so many riders want a map or a plan to follow for progress in their riding. Well, hold your horses! What if I was to tell you that there is a map available for equestrians. Oh yes, and it is loosely called the training scale or the traditional training scale. So many riders discount this because they think that they have to be riding at a certain level in order to use it. Or that...

1120 4 Ways to Work Your Horse when Time is Short

As I write this, it is that time of the year. The clocks have just gone back here in Ireland. It is dark by 5:30 pm each evening. It is still dark at 7:45 am each morning… And we have close to two months left until the official shortest day of the year. Meaning things are only going to get darker between now and then. In the top half of the world, Winter has come! And with it, a complete lack of daylight, warmth and ‘perfect riding weather’. This means that riders have to begin changing...

1119 | 4 Essentials to Get Started with Lunging that will Help Your Riding

10/21/2019
More
Lunging is one of those rare things to do with horses that has a pretty low ‘barrier to entry’. Getting started is pretty easy and ‘do-able’ for most riders. All that is needed is a few essentials and most riders can get started and off to the races with their horse. This is fantastic news because lunging, in my opinion, is something most horse and rider combinations can only benefit from including in their training routine. This is regardless of experience, training, age, discipline,...

1118 | Engaging Your Horses Core

10/15/2019
More
So how do you know if your horse is really engaged? For many riders, we know that it is important, however, we struggle to make it happen consistently. When your horse’s core is engaged, it means that energy is able to flow through your horse’s body. Through the container that is you and your horse when you are riding. Your horse’s core strength will determine how much energy can flow through the channel or container at any given point more... Have you joined our free community yet? ...

10/15/2019

Setting goals and making plans can feel like a waste of time when your horse is continuously tossing or throwing his head about. If you have a horse who reacts this way when being ridden, you will agree with me. It seems that no matter what you do, this issue is going to taint everything else in your riding. And it will. Horse riding his about the conversation between horse and rider. A big part of that conversation is the contact and the connection. Tossing or throwing of the head makes...

Does your horse go from 0 to 120 in half a stride whenever he sets his sights on a jump? If so, you will probably agree with me that jumping is definitely not the thing you find most enjoyable to do with your horse! In fact, very often it can feel terrifying! And I agree. Jumping with a horse who is rushing at the fences is not just scary, but also dangerous and frustrating more... Happy Riding, Lorna Improve your riding today by joining us here join

The conversations with your horse begin with the conversation going on in your head. Your conversation with yourself. So many riders create stories to explain why things are the way they are.

It is possibly one of the first things you heard when you initially took up the reins. Yet, it is one of the most enduring struggles riders have in the saddle. And even when it is mastered on the flat, it seems to crop back up again when a jump is required! Heels down is one of the most important things to ‘do’ when riding a horse. There are a lot of reasons why mastering this seemingly simple thing is vital to developing as a rider. I say ‘seemingly’ because more... Lorna Improve your...
