The Enjoy Riding Hacking Confidence Clinic
24th - 25th September 2016

Hack out in open country - and enjoy it! Learn exactly how to keep your nerves under control and start looking forward to riding - in just two days!

Calling all riders who fear hacking out!

If you know this - and more - is you, then you might ask yourself a few questions:

"Does it make sense to go on spending thousands every year on something that should give me pleasure - but which just makes me scared?"

"Do I really want yet another year of fearful riding?"

"How does this feel to my horse?"

And perhaps the most important question of all: "How much do I want to break out of this downward spiral of fear and frustration?"

The honest answers to those questions will show you what you need to do. Are you tired of the same old fears and failures? Do you want something better? Are you determined to make 2017 the year you conquer your riding nerves? YES? Then take your courage in both hands and do something about it. You know the old NLP saying: if you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got. Think about it: you know it's true. Time for a change!

Thrills, spills and solutions

I've been riding for over 50 years and I've ridden all sorts of horses and ponies in all sorts of situations. I've fallen off, been thrown off, broken bones, been bruised and strained muscles. It does happen. Only recently, my horse bucked me off! Have I stopped riding? No. Am I filled with fear at the thought of it happening again? No. Am I paralysed by "what ifs"? No. How have I been able to keep my confidence going? It's quite simple: I have used the exact same Enjoy Riding confidence techniques and strategies that I can teach you. I'm at an age where I don't bounce like I used to. I don't relish the thought of being bucked off in a major way again. So, how do I get over that? It's quite simple: I know how to control my thoughts. And if I control my thoughts, I can control how I feel. If I can control how I feel, I can influence myself and my horse. And the best thing is, you can learn to do it too.

Two days to change your life

For more than 15 years, Enjoy Riding clinics have been helping people to change a lot about themselves and their reactions. That's a lot of riders and a lot of horses whose lives have changed for the better.

We meet at the lovely old Suffolk farmhouse at Poplar Park Equestrian Centre. Set in acres of parkland, forest and heath, Poplar Park is the perfect location for traffic-free hacking along miles of sandy tracks. Your horse will be a steady riding school cob and you'll be part of a small, supportive group. We ride at a steady pace in consultation with the group. If you're adventurous and want to pop over a log or two, that can be arranged. If you want to take your time, maybe even just walking, that's OK. Remember, though, that you're part of a group, all helping and supporting each other. If you think that personal one-to-one support from me and in-depth concentration on your particular situation would be best for you and you want to ride your own horse, you'll want to explore the Confidence Masterclass, where you'll get my undivided attention.

Even after reading books and having hypnotherapy, Cilla was still "a bag of nerves". She came on a Confident Hacking clinic and changed her life. She says: "I really didn't expect such results so soon. I tried to keep an open mind and wait and see but I must admit I am astonished at the change in me. I am so glad I took the risk and had the courage to do the course." Dawn says: "I can't thank you enough. It's literally changed my life."

You can learn to do it too.

Learn, Connect, Ride

This is what a typical group clinic is like. Each day includes time for discussion, confidence Q&A, and connecting with the other members of your group.

Day One

We meet for coffee and introductions, followed by exploring Enjoy Riding core confidence skills. After lunch, we look at how you can begin to change and control your thinking. Then you'll have a choice of steady riding school cobs as we go for our ride in the forest. The hacking is wonderful - miles of sandy tracks winding through beautiful forest, heath and parkland. There's no road work and no worries about traffic. I hack out with you to support you as you practise your new Enjoy Riding confidence skills. Tea is followed by a discussion of the day's achievements.

Day Two

We recap on the previous day's confidence skills and then move on to more advanced techniques to change the way you think, feel and react in stressful situations. We hack straight out of the yard into the forest again in the afternoon, with me there to support you. Tea is followed by discussion and recap. You leave with your "toolbox" stuffed with confidence tools and techniques, and a crystal-clear plan for taking your new-found confidence forward. You'll be buzzing with enthusiasm for getting back to your horse and putting all this into practice!

Getting real

Now, I'm not saying you'll never have another fright on a horse. Horses are horses. I'm not saying you'll change everything instantly - although many riders do exactly that. I am saying that if you're willing and motivated to get real, step up, acknowledge that you need to change how you're handling this, and put your own energy into the relationship between you and your horse, you can be like the riders on the Case Studies page. You can learn how to keep calm and confident, develop a deeply rewarding relationship with your horse, and leave scares in the past where they belong. You can do it too.

Is the Enjoy Riding Confident Hacking clinic for you?

Well, only you can decide that one! If you can say YES to these questions:

If you're saying YES, YES, YES, and you want to share experiences and support with other riders, then the Enjoy Riding Confident Hacking clinic can help you get to where you want to be.

This is what just a few of the riders who've done one of these clinics have to say:

"I was plagued by panic attacks and fear, even when my horse did absolutely nothing untoward. I did a search on the Internet and found the Enjoy Riding website. I confess that I had tears in my eyes as I read about Caroline's course and what it could do for riders. I knew I needed 'tools' to help me cope with my fears and the Enjoy Riding course was offering them to me.

I booked myself onto the two day course with riding. I was apprehensive but I was also excited at the thought of conquering my demons! The course proved to be one of the best investments of time and money that I have ever made. To be in the company of half a dozen or so other riders, all sharing the same problems with nerves and fear, was heartening to say the least. Together we worked with Caroline to learn the techniques and tools to help us. Some of the course was fun, some of it was challenging but, ultimately, it was simply empowering.

My instructor was quite simply astounded at the change in me after I had done the course. I was a completely different rider and, nearly five months on, I remain so. I have discovered which of the 'tools' really work for me and I practice them and apply them frequently. For me, the techniques I learned from Caroline have been nothing short of magical! I feel I have shed the label 'nervous rider' once and for all." Sally


"Thank you for your very inspirational course. I am feeling much more positive now about riding. Now I'm excited about riding my horse. It makes me smile thinking about it!" Sue


"The visualisation has really helped beyond my wildest thoughts possible. I just can't believe how much enjoyment and fun I'm having and how relaxed I feel riding. I'm having the time of my life! Big smiles!!" Fawzia


"I didn't think it was possible to feel this good about riding again and thought I had lost my confidence forever. Thank you Caroline, your therapy treatments really do work. I know we couldn't have come this far without you." Gaye
