Description

Product Description

Are you a fearful rider? Have you been searching for help in overcoming your fear so that you can finally achieve your horseback riding dreams? Or are you a riding instructor who struggles to convince your students that they can ride with confidence?

If so, Riding Fear Free can help.

Riding Fear Free goes beyond the traditional equitation and horse training advice and goes straight to the heart of the matter by addressing the true problem: fear.

Learn how the scientific principles of fear extinction and memory replacement can be applied at the barn and under saddle so that you will never have another fearful ride.

You will learn to:

  • Rate your fear level
  • See the reality of your situation
  • Deal with emotions
  • Replace fear memories
This book features numerous images and illustrations to inspire readers as they take the journey to Riding Fear Free.

Please Note: Riding Fear Free is available in two paperback editions (black and white and full color) to suit any budget. This is the black-and-white edition.

I highly recommend this book for anyone with riding or horse related anxiety. As a lifelong rider who suffered a complete loss of confidence after a life threatening horse related accident, I cannot thank the authors enough for helping get back the confidence I feared I had lost forever. This book is also great for trainers and instructors who have fearful or anxious students.

This book has a lot of good ideas and techniques for someone with really serious fear issues. Most of the techniques are very similar to what I do as a trainer to help a horse to overcome fears of being ridden, it was very interesting to see the techniques applied to the human psychology of fear. It also is very helpful for a riding instructor to understand what your students might be feeling and how to help them to release some of their fears so they can progress.

I was slightly disappointed though, because the title and first few chapters indicate it will teach you how to banish all fear in the saddle, allowing you to ride like your wildest dreams. The final chapter then tells you that if you are not naturally a confident rider that you will continually have to use these (some are a bit odd) techniques throughout your riding career, and that you will always run across some riding scenarios that will cause you to regress in "Fear Free Riding". The other piece of advice that I found disappointing was, basically, that you should never ride a horse that isn''t completely safe, respectful and responsive, which is great advice, but most riders never have any fear issues around that kind of horse anyway. As a trainer I was looking for techniques that can keep me calm and really focused when my horse is struggling with something.

Helped me to learn how to work through my specific anxieties and turn them into strengths. I highly recommend this book. Also, incredible online support from the author. Horsemanship is a lifelong learning experience and I''m glad I have this book to refer to.

This book was very different than any I had read before. It made a lot of sense and had exercises that were easy to understand and to implement. I found the section dealing with imagined "what if" section especially helpful as I have always imagined problems that never come to fruition. Just asking my self how likely this is to happen has made me realize I have spent too much time worrying about things that never actually happen. It definitely helped me reduce my anxiety and think instead of getting tense.

This is one of the few books that addresses the psychological barriers to riding. It is W A Y past saddling up and just
DOING IT. It is filled with exercises, experience and methods for the rider who is a good rider, but has
Acquired a psychological fear of riding. I immersed myself in horses a few years go -no fear. Then after a few incidents I have contracted a paralyzing fear of riding. Fear of riding doesn''t necessarily mean lack of knowledge of horses or the inability to ride. It ''s all in the mind, and this is what''s this book addresses. I am slowly making progress.

Good, not great.
Reviewed in the United States on December 6, 2019
Nice to have a book that addresses this issue.
However, the reading is a repetitive. Perhaps that is by design in order to reinforce a message but for myself I found it distracting and tedious. Still, there is good information in the book.
