 Returning to Riding - Focusing on the Basics | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 12:34

You’ve decided to refocus your attention on your riding.  But knowing what to do and where to focus your attention can seem a little daunting.   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 depending on your unique situation.  However, there is a foundation that you build in your riding which is centered on a few specific principles.  Today I want to share those wit

 Boundaries; How They Work for You In Your Riding | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 13:18

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! Boundaries are so important when it comes to making progress as a rider. In fact, I have seen a marked difference between the results riders get in the saddle boil down to whether or not they have, and then actively enforce their boundaries.

 5 Actions to Your 'Better Version' | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 13:19

Can we sit down and have a quick and honest conversation? If you’re game, let’s go! As I write this, we are on the brink of a new year and a new decade.  The timing seems ripe for making some serious changes in your riding and your approach to riding. I would love you to be honest with yourself here…  I know that you know the answers to these questions.  Being honest will truly be the key to making progress with your riding moving forwards; regardless of when you are reading this.

 Groundwork; Take a Walk with Your Horse | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 07:02

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 thoughts, body language, position, voice, seat, legs, hands, and artificial aids to name some...

 Your Mindset; What Do You Believe About Your Riding? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 11:51

I am fascinated by how our minds work. 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, &, therefore, take action from that place.  The place where it won’t work. This versus rider who believes they can do something.  They will usually prove themselves right. Your Beliefs = Your Results

 Weight Aids & Using Them With Intention & Focus | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 14:30

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. Your goals are similar...

 Improving Your Riding with Your Light Seat | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 13:36

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...

 1124 Which Type of Rider Are You? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 12:27

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. You see it all comes down to your focus when you’re in the saddle. Is the focus on you or is it on your horse?

 1123 Taking Action on What You Learn in Your Riding | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 11:52

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...

 1122 Overcoming Plateaus In Your Riding Progress | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 14:08

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. Without a plateau, you would burn yourself out and become exhausted with the constant ‘effort’...

 1121 A Map for Progress in Your Riding | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 13:21

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.    So many riders discount the training scale because they think that they have to be riding at a certain level or that it is only for riders & horses of a certain discipline, usually dressage.

 1120 4 Ways to Work Your Horse when Time is Short | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 12:57

It is that time of the year. Winter has arrived meaning lack of daylight, warmth and ideal riding weather. Riders have to begin changing their approach if they are to move forward with their riding. Upcoming holidays and Christmas means flexibility is the name of the game for equestrians this time of year. So how do you keep your riding moving forwards when your riding times are shorter? By taking a different approach. Here are 4 different options to use to continue to work your horse.

 1118 | Engaging Your Horses Core | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 15:09

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...

 1117 | Riding a Horse that Tosses or Throws his Head | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 14:08

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 consistency in both of these things pretty impossible. more... Happy Riding, Lorna Improve your riding today by join us here.
