‘HARD-WIRING’ RIDING CONFIDENCE – 1 DAY WORKSHOPS
Group & Private
We offer private and group workshops to suit all riders. These have been developed and are led by Amanda Kirtland-Page. Amanda has over 25 years of therapeutic experience using hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, counselling, NLP and rider psychology and over 30 years of experience working with riders as an instructor.
The most popular workshop is the unmounted day. Here you get to focus on making all the important changes first. Sometimes, I am able to offer mounted sessions after the main workshop or the next day. If you are interested in a mounted session, please email me.
Please go to our calendar to book a workshop.
The day is focused entirely on building your confidence when handling and riding.
These workshops are run all over the UK and Ireland. We normally use a village hall, private residence, college or Equestrian Centre.
This is an intensive day, full of the very latest techniques to improve your riding confidence, which includes the very powerful Rider Confidence Hypnotherapy Sessions, Self Hypnosis Training, NLP Sports Coaching and Rider Psychology.
Not only will the day help you immediately change how you feel by boosting your confidence, but it will give you new skills for the future. You are free to take part in these exercises or just watch and work on them in your own time after the day. All the exercises are designed so that you can use them at any time easily and quickly when you need them. The day is also full of practical tips for you and these, combined with the above work, ensures a highly powerful day.
The group is made up of riders who have struggled with their confidence in one way or another and you have the opportunity of making new friends, which will add to your support network if you wish.
The Confidence Workshops are mainly unmounted, though if possible, we will offer mounted sessions after the main workshop or on the next day.
Private Confidence Workshops
Each rider is uniquely different from another and having a deep understanding of their individual needs is paramount to addressing confidence issues. Whilst using self hypnosis recordings can have a dramatic and permanent effect for many riders, there are many other issues regarding losing confidence that can be addressed in a workshop.
A full day of intensive personalised confidence training and therapy where we help you build your confidence skills on your horse. This day is focused purely on regaining
your riding confidence so you can start enjoying this wonderful sport.
We can also work on other aspects if you wish, such as improving your confidence around others, understanding your personality traits, breaking unwanted habits, help with important decision making, and many other areas. You can include a ridden lesson to start making the changes you need to conquer those fears.
Arena hire costs is payable by yourself.

“An amazing day with some “lightbulb” moments. Learned some useful tools for moving forward to attain a more relaxed, confident fun ride”.

“I found today incredibly useful! The different exercises and skills that I have learnt today I will use as much as I can to assist me in moving forward with my horse! Amanda was great and really personalised the workshop to ensure she got to the origin of any issues. I would recommend Amanda to anyone struggling with their confidence as she has really helped me”.
Sophie Sturgess, Kent
“The start of new, positive thinking – being ‘re-born’ to riding. Found the course very, very helpful and positive”.
Caroline Earle, Surrey
“I cannot believe how much we went through and how much of my life was affecting my lack of confidence. Thank you so much for all this Amanda, I loved it. I have been out in the school and Ruby and I seem to be getting on really well. I have gone through all the steps you laid out in my Action Plan and using all the exercises you taught me, which has helped loads! I found the hyposis amazingly relaxing and it does seem to have made a difference ‘somewhere’ in me, can’t pin point exactly where, but I find when I’m around Ruby, I forget to be anxious! How strange is that? I’m not questioning it really, just enjoying this new me”.
