Heard this on a Tony Robbins podcast and loved it, I’ve often said the reason I’m able to identify and help riders overcome their faults is because I’ve often had to work to overcome many of them myself!! #myequestrianlife #bhsaccreditedprofessionalcoach #equestriancoach #equestriancoachblog

Lunch time!
If they feel they can’t say no, they will never say yes.⠀
:::⠀
If you ask more than your horse is capable of, you will force them to say no.⠀
:::⠀
If your desire is a happy, connected and mindful horse you have to walk the fine line between forcing a NO and creating space for a YES!⠀
:::⠀
Getting to know your horses thresholds and your own is vital to understanding when to pause and when to push. Push never means force. Push means making a calculated decision that you are going to ask your horse to stretch herself or for you to step outside your comfort zone. Sometimes those two things happen at the same time.⠀
:::⠀
Giving your horse permission to say no is extremely overwhelming and often you’ll end up with what seems like an obnoxious teenager. But soon enough they start to see that while they are saying no you are creating space for them to say yes 🦄

Thankyou to @theponyclubuk for an incredibly informative day at The Pony Club Conference 2019. I finally got to see a @caroline_moore__ demo which was brilliant- lots of practical coaching exercises and, tips to take away! The guest speakers on concussion, asymmetry of horses/riders/saddles and (my personal favourite for obvious reasons!) Positive psychology were great! I’m looking forward to applying my notes and, sharing what I’ve learnt with you all! 🙌😁
Loved getting to have an overdue catch up with my old boss @laurajsjackson too 💕🦄

#wednesdaywisdom ...
‘I’ll do it tomorrow’, ‘I’ll start Monday’, ‘I’ll wait until this months over’....
How many of these do we tell ourselves when we are delaying changing something or doing something that is different?.🙈
.
Change and things that are different are scary!!! And, usually we avoid being scared. But, you know what’s scarier- NOT EVER DOING WHAT YOU WANTED TO DO!
So have a think about what it is that you want to change. And, today make a small, TINY STEP towards that change. If it’s getting fit- take the stairs instead of a lift, park your car further away. If it’s riding more often- make a riding schedule, plan to ride with a friend, hop on for just 20 mins. .
.
There’s always ways to BREAK IT DOWN so it isn’t as scary- look for those tiny step and begin to MAKE THAT CHANGE 💪🙌🐴

Ever feel like you are stuck in Groundhog Day when you get into the arena? Maybe you have a lesson and things seem to move forward, only to try it again on your own and you just can’t get the same feeling ?
Firstly, this is normal and nothing to feel bad about, but secondly, there IS a key to moving your riding/training journey forward and that is INTENTION.
Every ride or training session you have should be preparing for the next one- growth comes from piling one grain of sand on top of another, but if you want a sand castle, you have to add a grain every single day.
Riding with intention means that you know what you are working on, what you are aiming for and what you need to do to push the needle just a little bit more in the right direction.
Understand the training system you are following and ride intentionally for growth. Keep showing up and over time, you will get the results.
Double tap if this resonates, friends! We all get in the grind; it’s not glamorous or cute but it’s where the magic happens.

This horse tries his heart out every day. So excited for our dressage test in Lubbock in a few weeks and our combined test in March!!
Give yourself credit for your ring work!🏇🏾
-
I use combined weekly mileage to gauge whether a horse is ready to do a certain distance in competition. ⏱
-
If you are lucky enough to be trapped in an arena this time of year (yes I said lucky!) Remember your schooling counts for miles too! If you can’t track miles because it’s indoors, I like to use an estimate of 6 miles for every hour of schooling. 💎
-
Remember, schooling done right will work like strength training too. You are working muscles on your horse he’s not necessarily used to. Give lots of breaks and encourage stretching in between. If your horse isn’t used to working in any sort of frame, keep your expectations low and reward the try. He may be able to only carry himself that way for a few strides, but as with all things in body training, the muscles will develop and he will improve. 💪
-
Be thankful for the off season. There is still so much you can do for your horse and yourself. 🙏
I have said this many times, “if only There was another hour in the day”. .
How would you use an extra hour? .
.
I was asked this question this morning by my coach @shane962 and it got me thinking..would I use this hour wisely and accomplish a task, goal, spend time with family, friends, spend time doing something I love, sleep, catch up on work?

#Motivationmonday Today I had a client come in who I haven’t seen for a little while, we discussed what she has been up to and what her plans were. She had made a plan for the year with a very realistic end goal, and she was excited about it! 👏🎊🍾 This a lovely reminder for me that I need to firm up my goals for the year!😂🎯 What are your plans?

#motivationmonday...
Slightly late post today but, I thought I’d wait to post this! Corillo hasn’t seen a XC fence since September, and today he was amazing😍😍.
I’m so proud of this horse! He isn’t always conventional, he goes sideways, spooks at his shadows, throws his head up and, adds strides everywhere but that’s him! .
My motivational quote today is... ✨WORK WITH WHAT YOU’VE GOT✨
They are all different and, that’s one of the many beautiful things about this sport! 💪🐴❤️ .

Assessing the situation this past weekend. We have all been in emergency mode for the last few weeks as horses can’t even be brought into the barn for feeding due to the ice. 🥶

As for the help... well Parker is more opinionated than helpful 🤣
Here’s the first of our photos from the show this past weekend! Mouse and I in the 2’. We’re filling out our entry forms for the Quail Run Horse Trials in March this weekend; if any of you guys will be there, send me a message and I’d love to see you guys! .

This really resonated with me.🐴 Ride the horse you have that day. Our horses are not always consistent on their behaviour. They can have off days too or days when their head is not in the game.
This can be super frustrating for us riders, especially if our horses have been going well, it can feel like you’ve taken 10 steps back.
BUT you must remember, it’s just a bad day, that’s all. So ride the horse you have, try and make every ride constructive in some way.
That could be going back to basics that day and working on getting your horse listening to you or it could been just have a blast around to get this excess energy that seems to have appeared out.

Horses are not machines, their not always consistent in their behaviour or performance but learning how to deal with it and get the best you can out of that horse that day makes you a skilled rider 😊 mentally and physically 💕#equestriancoach#equinebodyworker#equestriansofinstagram#horsesofinstagram#equine#equestrian#horseandrider#equestrianquotes
I took my beautiful baby girl with me this morning while I was coaching and then took her to the vets as she didn't seem quite right and as I suspected she has a infection/ septicemia. #fingerscrossed #mybabygirl #orphan #calf #handreared
Please, horse owners/riders/workers, check your horse's vital signs regularly, especially in this cold weather snap we've been having here in Alberta. You can detect early if something might be wrong! Save, screenshot, or hang this photo in your barn so that you can keep this info easily accessible. 💙🦄 love them first, #strideview
It’s so important to keep your horses mind fresh & poles are a great way to do that. Even for a sand pit dancer like me, poles are an important tool. Pole work is not just for those that jump! Every horse I ride does not spend each session in the arena.
Pole work can help you as a rider to improve your balance and timing while helping your horse become more rhythmic and balanced. It also keeps them interested in their work.
Poles are fabulous for a horse returning from injury such as the stifles. Building fitness and strengthening specific areas, especially the hind end can be targeted in a fun way. As long as you are smart and start out small and slow, building up gradually. Make sure to speak to your horses vet or body worker to find out if your horse is ready and what type of exercises would suit. Then work with your coach to ensure the exercises are targeting what they need to.

Claire & Cleo did a fabulous job floating around the poles yesterday 🌟
Yesterday was my first horse show since HITS 2014. Mouse took me for a lovely ride around the 2’ jumper courses and we pinned 🥇 in both of them! For having only ridden Mouse 7 times since the end of January and only jumping 5 times since July, I wouldn’t say we did too bad at all! Trying to find pictures of our courses for you guys. Looking forward to a great show season with Mouse, Kit, Marni, and Vicki!
Sit tight Sunday 🙈😂 .
We are very lucky to still have a field where the ground is perfect despite the wet weather! Corillo is thoroughly enjoying his canter work, so much so he now likes to fly buck his way around the majority of the hack.... and he isn’t even that fit yet! Thankyou to @a.wayman_chiles72 and her super pony Jazz for being brave enough to be our hacking buddies! 😂🙈🦄 .

‘I won most improved rider at Pony Club’ .... I am so proud of this combination. When this young rider came to me a few years back she’d lost a lot of confidence due to bad falls. Three years later she’s flying round 80 tracks, competing at trailblazers, going XC... and jumping some tricky exercises in her lessons! She always puts her pony first and when things go wrong she doesn’t panic, she corrects and carries on!
.
People ask me why I Coach, why I work late nights, and weekends, and why I go out of my way to be there for my clients- because watching them grow in confidence and, achieve their goals is the BEST feeling ever! ❤️.
.
I am so grateful to have such an amazing job working with riders to ENJOY the sport they’ve always LOVED 😍🙌🐴

This is from one of my favourite but trickiest grids, 2 bounces, 2 strides, oxer, 2 strides, 2 bounces you’ve got to keep the rhythm and balance or it gets pretty tricky! #gridwork #showjumping #showjumper #showjumpersofinstagram #scea #bsja #equine #equestrian #equestriancoach #showjumpingexercises #sun #summer #horse #horsejumping #noscopenohope #jump4joy #ponyclubinstructor #riding #ridingclub #horseriding
These pictures were taken about a year apart... In many ways, it was a hard year. We have been on fitness journeys, had injuries and recoveries. We’ve come up against mental and physical challenges. But the bond that Ty and I have developed along the way, it’s priceless. The progress that we have made and the opportunities that lie ahead are worth every second that was spent rehabbing injuries, working the basics, pushing comfort zones and deciding to give it “one more go”. Though none of our progress would’ve been a reality without @jesseqfit ... I honestly have the worlds best trainer ❤️#numberonetrainer #equestrian #equestriancoach #hunterjumper #horsesofinstagram #transformationtuesday #nottuesdaytho #mainsqueeze
Super proud of these two again today. I remember when Elliot was a bit nervous about mounting and dismounting on her own and preferred to be lead while riding. I think the first time I suggested bareback riding her eyes popped out of her head. She hardly needs me anymore - only to film her riding fun 😅
Whinnie has presented many (MANY) challenges since I’ve known him but those are the experiences we learn from and without those tricky times we wouldn’t grow or advance our skills.
Here’s to all the equestrians building their confidence and becoming better riders and the beautiful character ponies who help take us to our goals 💖🙏🌟🥳 #equineunity #horselessons
Mighty Mouse the rockstar let me pony Duke behind him a few days ago. Baby Duke was so good! Once he figured out what he was supposed to be doing he had fun with it. So happy to have so many cute little babies to train this year.

#Fascia is such an important part of the body, but one of the most overlooked causes of soreness. Fascia is a type of soft tissue that covers every single bone, organ & muscle in the body. Like a web, its function is to protect, strengthen & support. When fascia is damaged, it becomes tight & restricting, disallowing full range of movement. This results in a stiff or sore horse. #equinemassage is a great way to rehabilitate damaged fascia or ensure the elasticity & function of healthy fascia. #strideview #equinesporttherapy
❄ Fighting Winter Woes ❄

Lack of motivation? Lack of decent footing? I hear you! I am struggling too. Take a look at my recent newsletter for some tips to help keep you going this season. There should be a swipeable story popping up soon (Assuming my motivation tips work and I have rolled my butt out of bed by the time this autoposts, bahahahah!!!)
Confession time 🙈🙋‍♀️
I wanted to share this one with you all, especially now when a lot of you may be facing lockdown measures etc...
I started the year all guns blazing! I was going to achieve this and that, I was going to be an absolute badass and smash my goals!!
And, I did..for about 4 weeks🤦‍♀️.
Then life started to get in the way, a few of things didn’t go to plan and, I let these knew positive habits I’d created begin to slip. I started to get behind, less organised, not hitting goal targets- then I became stressed, down and began to think ‘maybe I can’t do this’. 😫
.
A pure example of how powerful habits are to your mindset! AND how powerful your mindset is to your actions and what you achieve!😍👍
...Once you get back into negative habits, your mindset begins to turn negative too. It’s a cycle, or indeed can be a rapid snowball effect and without even realising it’s happening you can be back to your old ways not being a badass kicking on towards those goals! .
NOT what we want!
.
So, how do we break this?! Make positive habits YOU CAN STICK TO!
✨1)If you’re struggling make the steps between your goals smaller. .
✨2) Make tiny changes, rather than trying to change everything all at once. .
✨3) If you know you’ve let habits slide- what can you do NOW to change that! .
We will ALWAYS have setbacks with life and, especially with horses! It’s what we do in response to these setbacks which will determine what we achieve and, how we feel 🙌🐴❤️

Angel’s first canter! While I LOVE lunge lines, surcingles, side reins, and all the equipment for working a horse on the ground, Angel needs to learn to respect and respond to the body language of her handlers. Today we finally had a break through and Angel learned her cues for all three gaits plus changing direction. So pleased with this smart little lady.
Pretty much the nicest things anyone has ever written about me. Thank you @equii.sineadx for reminding me why I teach ❤️🐴 #coach #pride #kindness #smile #rememberwhy #equestrian #equestriancoach
It’s taken 5 years but, finally motherhen has had a sit on Corillo! (Mainly to try my new dressage saddle 🙈😂). She managed a walk and trot round, with me on the end of lead rope... she says she’s seen him ‘throw too many shapes’ to go alone just yet but, he knew to look after her! Maybe I’ll persuade her to have another ride soon! 🐴❤️

The gorgeous Donnie this morning, learning to let go of his tension & stress 😍 no it’s not perfect, but this little horse was started in draw reins & really struggles to relax over his back, lower at the base of his neck and take the nose down and forwards. Although on his forehand, his length of stride improved loads & he could stretch down while maintaining rhythm.
I’m thrilled with his progress, as I haven’t seen him for a couple of months due to winter weather getting in the way! His owner Sharon, has been working really hard to help him get stronger and more balanced, and the change in him since this time last year is huge! We’d worked through some very simple lateral work this morning, using leg yield and baby shoulder-fore to just get him to a point where he would accept my leg and soften through his body. This video was right a the end of the session, and shows him on his more difficult rein. Lots to work on still in terms of his balance and straightness, but he’s just such a trier, I do love this horse! ❤️

So today I used my amazing new piece of Go Pro to film one of my clients jump sessions with me! Due to to distance she has about 1 session per month with me. So, tonight I’ll edit this all together, with feedback and exercises to work on so she can visually see what she did well, and where she can improve ready for next session. A great way to help riders who struggle for time, distance or finances! 💪🐴✨

I have in my hot little hands all the awesome pictures from @sws_jagermeister ‘s shoot with @jatkinsstudio !! Now the hard part - I have to somehow choose which ones I want as prints?! I may even need your help in deciding... I will post my shortlist over the coming days and you can all help me choose 😍
Does he just get more good looking? I might have to start calling him Zoolander! 😆 Thanks for your fabulous work @jatkinsstudio
Still on a high from 6 hours of social media and marketing coaching on Tuesday at Onley Grounds Equestrian Centre! I was asked to cover media and marketing on the National Development Programme for Coaching Excellence, a course for Level 3 coaches within the affiliated disciplines of British Dressage, British Showjumping, British Eventing and even those teaching at Pony Club. And what a day it was!
It was amazing to see everyone truly embrace the session and start to implement the teachings immediately. There were even a few tech-y issues that we solved during the session, which actually turned quite interactive!
Lovely to see some younger coaches going through the training - the future of our equestrian sport.
Thistle showing off his fluffy feet and me in my lovely @easibedding coat! If you use easibed collect your tokens!! I cannot recommend the coat enough, it’s really warm with a lovely fleece lining but it feels so light to wear. Oh, and it’s definitely very waterproof 🤦🏼‍♀️. #buchananequineservices #equestriancoach #lawndownsthistle #homebredhorse #fellxcob #dressagecob #easibed #collectyourtokens

To years of fun with my very special pony ‘Magic Roundabout’! ❤️🐴
.
When we first got Dylan, as he was known at home, he was not the easiest of rides and, did a remarkable impression of a rodeo bull around the arena A LOT. He was a bit of a diva. As a slightly crazy 11yrs child I was determined he was a ‘project’ and I’d work with him. Just over a year later with help and guidance, I had unlocked the best pony ever! He’d jump ANYTHING and, do anything for me! .
I’ve kept this mentality and, I still believe given enough time, patience and gumption you can turn a lot (not all) but, a lot of horses and ponies into your best friend and your teammate! 🙌

I had the total pleasure of talking with Karsyn and Carolyn from @equineconnection_intl for their horse welfare series.
.
What does it mean to have a partnership for your horse?
.
What is mindset and emotional agility – is it just for people or people and their horses?
.
How does the welfare of the horses’ welfare play into your training?
.
We answer all that and more in the video which you can access via my #linkinbio! Would love to hear your thoughts! .

A little bit of #wednesdaywisdom! Have you ever come out of the arena thinking 'Oh my god! That was rubbish!!' - when only one little thing has gone wrong!? We have all been there! That totally irrational emotional response . . . That would be your chimp! 🐒 Your chimp is your initial emotional response to what your senses have told you. We have to learn to control our chimp when it gets out of its box , such as just after a test! I am Fresh back from the national coaching course where we had some excellent workshops on what language we use, how to control your emotional chimp, and a fantastic session with @tarapunterpr on all things PR! Have you ever had trouble with your Chimp getting out of its box!? 🐵🐒😂😂 #Chimp #Mindcontrol #Thinkingbrain #Dressage #Myjourney #Britishdressage #Maximiseyourperformance #Teamblount #Newyear #Teamworkmakesthedreamwork #Teamblount #Coaching #Sportscoach #Excellence #Equestrian #Horseofinstagram #Learning #Equestriancoach #Training #Progress #Goals #Horses
There are no shortcuts. The days when your body is aching, you feel tired, weak & managing your brain feels like an impossible task... Focus on the goals. Discipline. Determination. No one is perfect.

Thank you Jäger for being my courage. 🖤

This weeks wisdom comes from the legend who is George Morris! What a horseman he is! 👌
.
Often we forget that jumping and flatworm are both riding. And, when we ride the horse needs to have impulsiveness, be in a good rhythm, be balanced, responsive, supple ... the better we can make these elements on the flat, the easier it is when we add obstacles! .
.
So have a think, are there any problems you have when your jumping that could be helped by improving your flatwork?🐴💪

Sammy pinging today in my coaching session with @walsh6138 . I’ve been working hard on my position to keep myself up and back over the fences. 😅He’s feeling good in himself and I love seeing him getting his knees up and looking fit and athletic 🐴😍. I got Tom to video me as I always think it’s so valuable to see what it looks like versus how it felt, to remember what worked and to register progress. I committed to regular lessons after having a chat with myself over Christmas because you simply can’t get better on your own. My horse loves to jump so he makes me feel brave and confident. We finished up over a 1.30 upright which is something that last year he physically couldn’t do and I mentally wouldn’t have ridden into - I’d have lacked enough mental commitment to get over it on any horse to be honest. I used to watch riding club as a teenager and was in awe of the open riders because I never believed I could do what they were doing. Well it took me twenty years but here I am 😂Equestrian is such a leveller of a sport with ups and downs - I’ve never had such a capable and honest horse before so my goal is to make the journey and to enjoy every minute with him ❤️🐴. #myhorse #besthorse #learningtofly #lovemyhorse #showjumping #showjumpinghorse #geldingsofinstagram #ireland #coaching #equestrianblogger #equestriancoach #kildare #horselife
#trainingtiptuesday ... Make it OBVIOUS 🙌
This was this 4yr olds second time away from home, first time ever over cross country fences and, first time around a course.
So I am made it really, really obvious what the answers were to the questions we were asking. Gradually, as both he and his rider got more confident, and he understood what was being asked of him we removed the guide poles, and he ended up cantering around the whole course- ditch, water, steps included! ❤️🐴
.
🌟Adding extra steps to help horses and riders build confidence and make it easier is really useful. I find it is better to build on a confident base, than the incur or setup for a problem that could be avoided. Remember more technical and testing questions can always be added once both horse and rider are confident!
.
🌟Make it obvious, allow the horse and rider to be right and get a good feel whilst you’re building confidence and consistency! 🌟

Terrible quality but, over the moon with this horse's progress.

I could have not done any of this without my amazing team of saddle fitter, physio and farrier and of course Carole Aronson. The amazing owner of Fair Cloud #Faircloudstud who whooped this man into amazing condition

Lovely lesson on Baby Doll today with Trinity!! We started out with a saddle and finished up bareback on a lunge line to work on position and relaxing the arms during the trot. I am a firm believer that if you can’t do something without an aid then you shouldn’t do it with, so even though riding bareback is fun, we can still use it as a learning opportunity in lessons.
Who’s a good boy? Westie is!!!! 💕

Brand new video, "Doing it Right With Archie Cox" just added!
🎞 🎥
As a trainer, Archie Cox insists that his pupils have classic basics and continually challenges them to “do it right.” One of his students in particular, husband Jorge Hidalgo Duran, is a perfect example of this. Check out this outstanding thumbnail picture of Jorge at HITS Coachella Desert Circuit 2019 who has been riding just over a year. In this topic Archie demonstrates how deviating from the proper principles of riding adversely affects the horse’s performance.
