Why We Love This

Did you know there is an area of your brain known as the "Lizard Brain" that thinks only about the immediate moment and your means of survival? Yes, in certain circumstances, your "Rational Brain" can effectively "shut down" and you are at the mercy of a reptile...dry-mouthed, sweating, queasy, unable to think clearly—even though you know better. When does the Lizard Brain run the show? It can happen in any number of unfamiliar, uncomfortable, challenging, or "stressful" riding situations. But here's the thing: with the right kind of training, you can learn to manage the reptile within, which leads to greater confidence with horses, better riding performance, and ultimately, happiness at the barn, at shows, and everywhere in between. Andrea Waldo teaches you how to: handle uncomfortable emotions, such as fear, anger, anxiety, and embarrassment; hone your mental game and focus your riding time to get the most out of your hours in the saddle; care for your emotional injuries the same way you would care for an injured horse; and produce a state of "Focused Calm" and tap into the skills you have (whether you know it or not!) to ensure an outstanding ride.

    Brain Training for Riders is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best tool to overcome PTSD THIS BOOK!!!!!! I had a very bad fall 2 and a half years ago. I have been riding for 45 years and teaching and training horses for 25 years, but still suffered debilitating PTSD (which I did not know I could even experience). I thought I would never get my confidence back. I was riding + working with my trainer 3 times a week and I still had bad anxiety I could not control. I got this book from a friend who felt it was "not what she needed for what she was going through" she had found a different book that helped her. Anyway I thought I'll give it a shot. I started reading it and Andrea gives you exercises to do at home and while riding, but most of the work is done while you're not riding. So I thought I better do this for real if I want it to work so I got out a journal and I dove in, and not only did all the exercises, but took notes as I read as if I was in a class, I journaled every single day for months, sometimes before and after my ride, filling my journal with notes and mantras and positivity and lots and lots of hearts waves and flowers :) . And literally re-trained my brain. I changed my thought processes and became aware of the harm I was doing to my own psyche and confidence. I became able to recognise when I was thinking detrimental and negative thoughts and replaced them with confidence builders!! This takes time there is no quick fix for dealing with PTSD, so be kind to yourself. After a while I began feeling more like the rider I truly am, the confident skilled rider I knew I have always been but was afraid was lost. I rode today and had not ridden for two weeks due to weather and crazy business. So as I tacked up I did one of the exercises, (listing my skills) I just listed them as I brushed my horse..they can be the smallest thing like "I have giving hands" or "I'm a compassionate rider". But I list as many as I can think of, either in my head or out loud. This exercise helps me get into the right frame of mind focusing on what I'm good at and my competence as a rider, feuling my confidence, and preparing me for the ride. My horse is extremely sensitive and tricky to ride, so it has been even harder but I did not want to give up on him just because I got hurt. I had an amazing ride, I was focused and it was as if no time had passed at all. A year ago, or even 5 months ago, I would have had my trainer ride if I hadn't worked my horse in two weeks, (well there was a bit of lunging but no riding) or at least ride him first, but I don't need to do that now. PLEASE if you are experiencing fear or worse, PTSD buy this book. WORK this book. It takes work but you will succeed and you will regain your confidence. And bonus you might even retrain your thinking enough to have a more positive self view in the other non horsey parts of your life. It worked for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saying "DELETE" can change your life! I've read this book numerous times now to deal with my riding and competition nerves. I have always lived more or less by Murphy's Law. This book helped me find ways to overcome my tendency to expect the worst. When negative thoughts creep into my mind I "hit the DELETE" button in my mind just like on the computer. It really works!
