Are you diligently following the rules in your riding or equestrian business but still feel stuck? The secret to breakthrough isn’t just in adhering to the foundations but in transcending them to create your unique path to success. This is where The Mindful Equestrian steps in.
I’m Lisa Eklund, and I empower riders and equestrian professionals to redefine success on their own terms. Leveraging my extensive experience in hunters, jumpers, and various equestrian disciplines, I offer a blend of performance coaching, life coaching, and business mentoring.

As an equestrian performance coach with over 40 years in the equine industry, my approach blends classic hunter/jumper training with innovative mindfulness and performance coaching. I’ve crafted unique coaching models — The Unleashed Equestrian and The Unleashed Professional Equestrian — to empower riders and equestrian entrepreneurs to break from convention and carve out individual paths to success.
The Unleashed Equestrian model shifts riders from passive participants to active creators, transforming fears into opportunities and reframing mistakes as pivotal learning moments. It’s founded on three pillars: a resilient Mindset, refined Position/Technique, and a deep Connection with the Horse, each reinforcing the other.
For the business minded, The Unleashed Professional Equestrian model addresses the daunting challenges of equestrian entrepreneurship. From financial stress to marketing strategies, it builds on pillars of Sustainable Success Mindset, Efficient Business Foundations, and adaptive Outside-the-Box Strategies.
My personal evolution, marked by significant life challenges, has been a testament to the power of inner strength and adaptability. These experiences have deepened my mindfulness practice, reinforcing the value of presence and resilience — qualities I share with clients to navigate their transformative journeys.
I’m committed to continuous learning, applying fresh insights to avoid stagnation in teaching and coaching methods. This adaptability ensures my clients receive relevant, forward-thinking guidance. My deep understanding of both professional and amateur equestrian life forms the bedrock of my connection with clients, fostering growth in riding, business, and personal endeavors.
