Become a Mindful Equestrian

Better Mental Focus in Your Riding, Your Business, Your Life

Mindfulness is the practice of being present in every moment, not worrying about what was or what might be. A mindful person is able to focus on what is happening right now with themselves, maintaining low stress and a higher ability for top performance and higher quality of life and self-care.

The benefits from performance and business coaching can also be carried to day to day life, since we mirror the same issues in our riding that we do in other areas of our lives. Mindfulness then becomes a whole life practice and success tool.

The Mindful Equestrian services have expanded from equestrian performance and life coaching to business coaching as well.  My focus is on helping women equestrians, who are also entrepreneurs, either in the equestrian industry or some other entrepreneurial pursuit.  I understand the equestrian mindset and the need to be connected to horses and the equestrian community.  I also understand the ins and outs of being in business and the entrepreneurial mindset. So it is a win-win situation!

Equestrian Performance

Here To Help

I’m an equestrian performance coach and a hunter/jumper clinician and trainer. I am also a business coach/consultant for equestrians and an equestrian life coach. My personal journey and passion for mindfulness and self- awareness has lead me to develop a unique style of coaching, consulting, teaching and training. I blend traditional equestrian training techniques with mindfulness training and performance coaching. My 35 years of experience and training in the equine industry, my business experience (both as an entrepreneur and consultant), combined with my training and certification (Certified Professional Coach CPC) from the International Coach Academy give me a strong foundation in both training, consulting and coaching.

My diverse background and interests have enabled me to create a blended teaching and coaching style that incorporates specific riding techniques, business skills and mental coaching support. I love understanding the science behind how things work, but I also am comfortable with relying on my intuition, instincts and feel. I am always searching for new ways to look at things and try not stay stuck in one way of teaching, coaching, consulting and training. I apply what I learn from my self-growth to my professional growth and my coaching and consulting. I enjoy supporting my clients in their journeys. I understand the equestrian life for both professionals and amateurs. It is that understanding that enables me to connect with you in your riding, business and life.

Throughout the years, I have had some major life upsets which made me look inside myself for the strength to move forward and the grit to make changes. Grit is a favorite word of mine. The quality of grit has allowed me to move forward in life no matter the circumstances and to embrace change My mindfulness practice has taught me the benefit of pausing in this moment and staying with what is happening right now. As your coach/consultant I will partner with you to find and use your grit and to develop a mindfulness practice in order to help you make the changes you need . I am excited to have the opportunity to with you on your journey towards mindful living and great success.
