Attitude is EVERYTHING!

When it comes to successfully riding and training horses, Attitude is EVERYTHING, and we're talking about yours! So, over the next few weeks we're going to share some techniques that have worked for us to stick up on the tack room wall or somewhere you're bound to see them to remind yourself to keep focused on having the right attitude. If you change these few things then we're sure you'll see a big improvement in the relationship between you and your horse. But like any changes, you need to keep practicing them all the time to rewire the way you think-that's why we reckon it's good to just work on one change in attitude at a time. Your mind really is a powerful tool if you use it correctly!

                                                       FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE.

Start focusing on the positive things that happen in the day with your horse. Sometimes all we focus on are the things that went wrong. Are you one of those people? For instance, do you come out of a show jumping round and see the one refusal you had and not all the other jumps that your horse sailed over

Every time you catch yourself thinking about the things that went wrong, whether it's something you did or your horse, STOP IT!! That's it, right, no don't you dare think about it! If you're someone who habitually hones in on the negative then you'll find this very hard to do to begin with, but if you're strict with yourself and keep working on it, you will see change.

Now, at the same time start noticing and rewarding yourself and your horse for the good things that you've done that day, however small - maybe it was just one fantastic transition- and afterwards keep repeating that thing or things over and over in your mind. Really hold on to how good it felt. Let it get stuck into your brain.

You also need to start focusing on a positive outcome for future events. If you're worried that something is going to go wrong, start visualising it going right. Again, when you get that negative thought come in to your head, scratch it out, screw it up and stamp on it!

 The more you focus on something going wrong, the more it's likely to happen because by actually focusing on it, you will send all your brain's attention there. Instead, focus on what you want and not what you don't want. Look for the positive with all your energy.

Only you can change the way you think, and you need to start practicing in the mind manege now!

                     a passion for horses.
