Jane Savoie's article

Jane, if you're on here today, your article on overcoming fear in this months Practical Horseman is killer! Both the information about how the subconscious works and the quantum physics part were extremely interesting. Everyone should read it!

I have to get this months issue. Maybe it will help me out.

I have a huge issue with Stadium Jumping since my accident not that long ago. My Coach has been having a hard time getting me over my fears even though she has a degree in psychology. She can set up a 2'6" verticle, and my head will see it at 3'0" and I wont go over it. No way, no how.

She's been trying to get me to think positive and write affermations *sp* on recepie cards and read them over and over, but not working.

I've been thinking of just going to a hypnotist. Lol.

MIEventer, you're going to love it. It just goes those extra steps into actual science rather than just thinking about tulips and buttercups. Puck is suddenly not feeling well or else I'd be trying the ideas out with my own jumping.

Thanks Puck! I'll have a look-see :) I get very angry at myself when I am at the barn riding with everyone - while they are jumping fences, and I coming up with whatever excuse I can to not do it.

While yet, I'll go out on the CC course and ride any fence you point me at - while they, all come up with every excuse they can to not jump them. Lol.

Absolutely ******ed. My first HT this season is May 2nd - I'd better figure this out lickity split!

Hi Guys,
I also have a FB page called Solve Horseback Riding Fear. There are a lot of good video clips (like on Breathing and using a technique I call Advance and Retreat) and some articles and tips on the Discussion wall and even some sports psychology tips from Moshi and Indy on the main wall.

You'll have to scroll down to "Older posts" to see content on the wall. FB won't let me put new content up right now. Apparently the name Solve Horseback Riding Fear represents a "generic concept". Fan pages are supposed to represent a business not an idea...So we're working on changing the name to Solve Horseback Riding Fear with Jane Savoie to satisfy their terms.

In the meantime, all the old content is there, and as soon as we can change the name, I'll add some new stuff.

MIEventer. I had the same problem after a bad accident. I had a trainer lunge me over fences where she took my reins, gave me a neck strap and told me to close my eyes if I needed to. I was on a horse that is very game to fences and has taught many people how to jump/get over fears. But I held the strap in a death grip, became a passenger and she and the horse did all the work for me. I too had the mental block between 2'6 and 3'0 and I would freak out and psyche myself out. After being lunged over the 2'6 a few times I got the rhythm and by the end of the hour I was riding 3'0 oxers on the lunge and using my seat and leg aids to drive the horse on. At that point I didn't have my reins because she was working on my seat and aids and I didn't need them not because I was still interfering with the horse to the fence. If this is available to you at all, I strongly suggest it. But learn to be lunged over 2' fences before you get lunged over the big ones and your seat has to be solid. Also, don't try this with any horse/trainer. It takes a special combination of horse and instructor to achieve this but it works wonders for fear issues. The horse has to be willing to pack an unresponsive rider over a decent sized fence and the instructor has to be the one telling the horse what to do correctly to make it work.
