Coaching is the facilitation of a partnership between horse and rider. Every rider has goals and it is up to coaches and riders to set achievable goals, which must always be to the horses advantage and never his detriment. At Bergin Equine we give each partnership the support they need to achieve happily.
Awareness of the power of the mind is an amazing key, rider mental state has a profound effect on the horse. One of the key issues which I personally struggle with and something that lots of us suffer from is our attitude towards mistakes! Recently I have been influenced by the writings of American horseman Mark Rashid, who has a lot of skill in changing mental state. I am drawn to this quote:
“When we do something with our horse that has an undesirable outcome it is an opportunity for growth” -M.R.
As we become aware and control our mental state precision and ability to work with the horse both increase! Using the balance between mental state and the development of skills I feel that the horse rider partnerships I train go further and enjoy it more.
My goal in throughout my coaching career is -
“To get riders where they want to go, at a rate that suits them, achieving happily!”
I offer private, semi private and group sessions for
