What difference will it make when you get past those nerves, anxieties and ‘what ifs’ around riding? 

What will you now be able to do? How will you feel? How much will you enjoy and actually look forward to riding your horse?

So many riders struggle with a lack of confidence, feeling overwhelming self-doubt and believing they’re ‘not good enough’ in some way. If this sounds familiar, then I promise you with 100% certainty that you’re not alone!

Whether you’re an experienced rider struggling with competition nerves, someone who’s returning to riding after time away, or you’re facing challenges in specific situations, then I want you to know that it’s entirely possible for you to experience riding differently. 

With the right support, training and guidance, you can find your way to feeling in control (of yourself AND your horse!), trust your decisions, let go of old patterns and habits, and to rediscover all the joy, fulfilment and pride that lives on the other side of your mindset blocks. 

My name is Alison Buttery and I’m obsessed with helping riders just like you, overcome their nerves, anxiety and fear so that they can fall back in love with riding their horse again.

  • Perhaps you’re a rider who is nervous about hacking out.
  • Maybe cantering or jumping is your nemesis.
  • Alternatively, you might be desperate to step up a level and be competitive.
  • You might have a new horse and feel a bit like a fish out of water.
  • Or it could be that simply being able to put your foot in the stirrup to mount has felt like a step too far.

Whatever your situation, I know that when you get the foundations in place and follow my proven step-by-step process, you can unpick those mindset blocks and discover your riding confidence.

I was basically at my wit’s end trying to deal with my nerves with jumping. I recently bought a new horse and just felt like my heart was going to escape my chest with the nerves and butterflies. My previous horse used to stop and a combination of him doing that my confidence got less and less. I google searched and found Alison. Well, boy let me tell you I’m so glad, lucky that I found her when I did.
So I booked in for a Zoom call with Alison and we’ll let’s just say she works magical wonders as today we jumped and it was fantastic. I woke up this morning and didn’t want to be sick. I drove to the yard and wasn’t feeling faint. I wasn’t thinking of an excuse to cancel. My instructor was coming but didn’t know I wanted to jump. I looked all the jumps out beforehand. No nerves no being sick. No heart pounding. Jumped and had so much fun and could not stop grinning and squealing at how fantastic this was again. So I would 110% recommend Alison for any doubts, or fears you may have. As once you get your mojo back you never want that feeling to end. X

I highly recommend Alison’s private sessions.  I had a very serious accident, which of course resulted in very significant fear post-recovery.  I was very frustrated about how paralyzed I felt and I did not want to quit the sport I love or give up on my horse.   I somehow found Alison’s program.  Alison’s unique qualifications make her the ideal person to work with.  She is absolutely devoted to helping you overcome your concerns, hesitations, and fears.  She is a great listener and very skilled to help you change your mindset.  The added benefit is her profession as an equine coach – she really gets you, where other sports psychologists may not. I took her advice to heart and continue to use the skills she taught me.  The other thing I love is that I can check back in with her if I need a boost. Don’t hesitate. Book a session.
