If you have been struggling with anxieties or fears, constantly held back by the 'what ifs', feel sad, frustrated, or just feel you are on your own with your difficulties, we are here to help you overcome these and achieve your riding dreams.

We offer not only Sports Psychology, NLP and Hypnotherapy, but a deeper knowledge of psychotherapy, personality types and preferred methods of learning.  The Confident Horse Rider Ltd is run by Amanda Kirtland-Page.  Amanda has over 35 years experience of teaching riders, 20 years of Hypnotherapy, NLP, Counselling and Sports Coaching experience and has competed herself with her horses both in the UK and internationally.

We will find the best way to help you build confidence and to make those important changes, in whatever area you are stuck. You are not on your own, we will help and support you all the way to achieving your dreams.
