    For over 30 years I¿ve been helping people with their horses. Ma

    For over 30 years I’ve been helping people with their horses. Many of those riders had fear issues and I didn’t always know how to help the fear. Riding Fear Free changed all that.

    This is the book I’ve been waiting for – without even knowing it. Trying to help riders with fears I often didn’t understand was frustrating. And there just wasn’t much help out there for fearful riders or those working with them - until now. These authors truly understand the various types of fear and most importantly commonsense, simple ways to fix them. Laura writes with the wisdom of someone who has a great deal of experience and insight into all kinds of fear.

    There is, of course, the “good fear” that keeps us out of a truly dangerous situation. But the unfounded or no longer valid fears that hang over riders, sucking the fun out of horse activities, are what this book will help. Riding Fear Free covers every imaginable aspect of fear, horse and environment. You can not only ride in spite of fear, you can get rid of it.

    If you find yourself making excuses not to ride, “I really should do that laundry…” you need this book.
    If you get “butterflies” or a knot in your stomach when you think about riding your horse - you need this book.
    If you are an instructor who has searched for ways to help students who feel fear you’ve never felt – you need this book.
    If you are an instructor who has felt fear of riding – you need this book for both your own healing and your students’ healing.

    Very helpful advice that goes beyond what you have heard before. THis author knows horses and knows people. She offers techiniques that will help any rider become a better, more confident rider. This book is for both the rider adn and riding instructor, but any person can benefit from reading the perspective of both. Easy to read and understand.
