Neuro Linguistic Programming - NLP - is a powerful psychological tool for building confidence and determination, clearing 'blocks', and goal setting. Readers will be able to pick which techniques are appropriate to their needs, from goal setting, such as, 'I want to jump with confidence', through to visualisation exercises to do half an hour before an event or exam. One chapter reveals the unconscious strategies and beliefs of expert trainers, riders and competitors, including disabled riders and natural horsemen. An informed explanation of how their behaviour makes them successful will allow readers to modify their own approach. Throughout the book, the step by step approach is supported by real life case histories of other riders. Simple Steps to Riding Success will appeal to any rider who wants to improve their confidence and clear the negative memories or beliefs that are stopping them from enjoying their horses more.
