Remain calm and confident whilst hacking out
Hacking out should be a pleasure, its something that most riders dreamed about doing before they even started riding. The problem is that sometimes the pleasure just doesn’t seem to be there anymore, perhaps as a result of a bad experience in the past, like the horse ‘spooking’ or ‘shying’ (especially when in traffic) or your horse stumbling or slipping unexpectedly or perhaps even worse, it tried to bolt with you.
You may find that even the most insignificant things, however minor, seem to send you into a spin and all you can think of doing is dismounting and getting back home as fast as possible. If this happens too often, you could become so nervous about riding that you will only hack out in company or for short periods. Worst still, you start to avoid hacking out altogether and even think about giving up riding completely. Whatever the scenario, you aren’t the confident, calm, relaxed rider you want to be and this has to change for your sake and that of your horse!
How this self-hypnosis session for Hacking can help you:
This session will take you through an imaginary hack out, along lanes, into a field and back home again. All through the process your subconscious mind it offered positive suggestions and ideas that will impact on your conscious mind when you are in the wakeful world. As you pass by all those things that might have made you nervous in the past, you enjoy your surroundings, feeling at one with your horse, staying calm and relaxed. When you ride again your mind will make a connection back to this time when you felt confident, relaxed and calm and this will help you to stay in control of your feelings, thoughts and reactions. You will no longer feel panic, anxiety, fear, or tension whilst hacking out.
Each time you listen to this session you feel more and more relaxed, confident and in control.
This new updated and revised (2014) Hacking with Confidence Hypnotherapy session includes background music at specific and relevant intervals, and the therapeutic section has been extended to encompass a broader spectrum of issues and concerns.
