The Confident Rider Podcast is for big-hearted equestrians looking to create a meaningful relationship with their horse. I share tools and tips to help boost your riding confidence, silence self-doubt and work with the wisdom of our body & mind, as well as personal stories and conversations with other riders out there creating their best riding life.
"I Got Bucked Off- And Now I Have Trouble Riding Alone. Now What?" A Podcast Q&A
A couple of weeks back, I got tagged in a post on Facebook where the person in question had been bucked off and now found herself in the midst of two different riding experiences; when she is with her instructor, she is fine to ride. When she is alone, it’s a completely different story.
In this episode, we discuss the difference between these two scenarios & I discuss how to move beyond the reflexive responses created in the aftermath of an accident and injury.
Staging A Comeback: Finding A Way Forward After An Extended Break Or Injury
In this episode, I talk about navigating the transition point when it comes to restarting work together after an extended break. We discuss some of the common "stuck points", including overwhelm, anxiety, and confusion, and more importantly, how you can navigate to the other side of them.
Josh Nichol: On Leadership, Connection & Relational Horsemanship
I had the great pleasure of sitting down together with Josh Nichol and having a conversation about his work, and our shared passions and interests.
Our time together covers a lot of ground; we discuss Josh’s Relational Horsemanship approach, his definition and thoughts on leadership, and the body-mind connection.
The Importance Of Context: Understanding Free Floating Anxiety
In this episode, I provide three possible contexts for the experience of “free-floating anxiety” (you know, that anxiety that just “appears” in situations that seem to have no justifiable reason!) beginning with intuition, and ending with understanding the nature of traumatic stress and the formation of memory at both a conscious and unconscious level.
I hope you enjoy it!
The Connection Between Bodily Sensation & The Emotional Brain
Many of us find ourselves in groundhog day experiences with our horses based on certain feelings or sensations that arise in the body. Whilst those sensations can feel concrete and absolute, they are inherently subjective. Think of them as a mash-up of everything you have thought, experienced, or been told in relation to a similar experience in the past.
In this episode, we talk about the nature of these responses and how we can pull ourselves out of cyclic loops of habituated behavior & reactions.

I can't rate Jane highly enough - she is inspirational, hilarious, down-to-earth, genuine and extremely competent. She breaks down tricky topics into really relatable ideas with handy hints for practical application - to horses and to life - with the in-built reminder to be compassionate to oneself throughout. She never fails to broaden my horsing journey horizons. I always have a smile on my face while listening and finish every episode feeling inspired! Thank you for being you, Jane!
