Equestrian Performance Coaching Group

 Would you like to gain better mental focus and confidence in your riding? This is an opportunity to do so and at the same time gain the benefits of a group coaching experience. You will get coaching at a more affordable rate, become a member of a team who will support you in your journey and celebrate your successes, brainstorm with a group, learn from others, share ideas, hold each other accountable and make new life long connections! This group is for all levels of riding ability and all riding disciplines.

I would have loved to have had a group of other equestrians and a coach to help support me in my riding career. So I developed this group coaching to help today’s equestrians in their journeys to gain more confidence in their riding. The purpose of the group is not for me to coach you all the time , but instead be a facilitator for all of you to bring together your expertise, support, thoughts, struggles and needs that you have in your riding. I will bring my coaching skills along but you will all be the ones in the driver’s seats.

Each group has 8 teleclass sessions over 4 months. The first session is a get to know each other session. The next 6 would be set up so that each person in the group gets the opportunity to bring a topic to discuss for your week that is important to you. The final session would be a wrap up.

These would all be done via Zoom and be recorded so that if you can’t make a call for some reason, you can still watch the recording at a later date. Even if you were on the call you will be able to go back and watch again at any time if you choose. There is a closed Facebook group that will be ongoing, where you and future group members can stay in communication with one another.

The next group will begin is not yet scheduled. Please fill out the contact form to get on the list for the next session. I will contact you with more information and add you to the list if the class is not already full. If it is full you will be added to the waiting list for the next session.

Here is a link to an article explaining the value of being part of a coaching group:


I am looking forward to meeting a new group of equestrians and being a part of you all supporting each other in your success!



Are you a coach or rider for an IHSA or IEA team? In the past 20 years I have worked closely with IHSA and IEA riders as a coach, judge, steward, clinician and show organizer. I understand the pressures of competing on a team and riding unknown horses. My years of experience as a trainer and performance coach offer me a unique perspective, both with understanding a rider’s individual performance needs and how each horse needs to be ridden. I help riders learn to focus on developing a feel and relationship with the horse, and then form follows function. Riders begin to let go of worrying about a fixed position and instead turn their focus to understanding the ride needed for each horse.

Are you an adult rider or trainer of adult riders with all the adult stresses of life? Is it sometimes hard for you to find confidence, let go of your fears or need to be perfect? Does that make it hard for you to truly enjoy the passion for riding? Is riding not so much fun anymore? I get it! I have lived enough years and gone through my own personal adult struggles to be able to connect with adult riders. I got into a mindfulness practice because of my own life struggles. It has helped me be more confident and successful in my life. I truly enjoy working with adults and supporting them in finding more confidence and sharing my insights to help them find more success in their riding and life.

The Mindful Equestrian clinics are structured in a typical clinic format. I do private, semi-private and group sessions with a focus on riders improving both their technical skills and mental focus. I also offer a whole group mindfulness talk, in a seminar format, that can be included with a clinic to discuss how mindfulness strategies and working on mental blocks can improving riding outcomes and success.

Seminars and Talks

Seminars and talks about mindful riding and mental focus are offered to teams, lesson clients, trainers and organizations. These can be tailored to your group in several ways. With my diverse background in the horse industry and academics I also offer seminars/talks on a variety of horse training, barn management and equine business topics.
