Truly, I believe the best of all wisdom comes from the Bible, but in real life and in trying moment (or season) I’ve often found “head knowledge” to not be enough to keep me where I want to be in terms of my mental game. Listening to these podcasts has given me real-world tools and concepts to think about in those moments to help me get back to right-side-up - both at the barn and everywhere else in life! Jane is amazing and her sweet, kind personality and style of delivery make digesting the life-changing, deep information she shares in this podcast very accessible. Thank you Jane Pike! You are a blessing!!!
So grateful for this!
I've only listend to a few episodes so far, but I love this podcast! I feel like Jane knows me and how I think - and what I need to hear to improve my confidence! This goes beyond horses and into my everyday life. I feel like I'm getting free and effective therapy when I listen. Plus, her voice/ accent is so cool to listen to. Thank you so much! - Beth
