Who’s really riding when you’re riding?
Have you ever wondered why when you’re at a show you can’t seem to ride the same way you do at home?
Have you ever stopped to ask yourself, “who is really riding here?”
Because when it comes down to it, if you’re stressed and things literally feel like a blur when you go into the ring, I promise, you’re not doing the riding.
The voice inside your head is.
We all know it, and hear it, but do you even know who it is?
Thankfully, it isn’t really incontrol, that is until we let it be. When you’re feeling stressed in a pressured situation, like a show, when you’re feeling uncomfortable being watched by other people, you’re in a sympathetic response. You’re in fight or flight mode.
You’re literally using the most basic part of your brain, the limbic system, which is designed to react to fear. To keep you alive. You lose all connection to the higher functioning, neocortex of your brain. The part that knows how to rationalize and RIDE.
Stay in this state too long, and it becomes your default state, but you can learn to get out of this frazzled, wired and tired state.
Knowing how is easier than you think, and as soon as you do, you’ll be able to ride exactly like you do at home.
Not only do you get the ability to handle your nerves at a show, you’ll be able to handle them at work, in important relationships, emotionally charged situations, even in the face of habits like addictions to food or drugs.
It’s not just a nice to have skill, it’s a must have skill.
