Fear Workshop Testimonials
Kirstin effortlessly made the learning accessible and fun for all ages
As a Pony Club it hasn't been uncommon for us to see a parent or a coach struggle to support a child who has had a fright, who has a mental block or can't find a way to manage their fears.
We often focus, within rallies, on physical riding abilities and Kirstin's virtual workshops helped our kids, parents and coaches (our team) to explore how important mindset is. The workshops offered our team very different tools - tools they have at their disposal everyday - to support their development as equestrians (and in life more generally). Added bonus the sessions we participated in are all recorded and come with fantastic resources so we can reflect and revisit all our learning!
With primary and secondary school kids on the calls Kirstin effortlessly made the learning accessible and fun for all ages. Her knowledge and experience in all things equestrian helped to make tangible connections the kids can relate to for all the mind skills and concepts she introduced us to.
Mindset matters, psychology matters and I am thrilled our kids have been introduced to these concepts by such a fun, knowledgeable and passionate trainer.
These steps have definitely helped me to be more confident and brave out on the cross country
Last season I was competing at 95cm events, we had a ditch problem and having silly stops due to nerves on the cross country. This season after doing Kirstin’s ‘5 simple steps to make positive change in your riding’ I have competed in a 95cm event placing second on our dressage score. We then competed in our first ever 105 going double clear and placing second in our class. We are having the best season ever!
These steps have definitely helped me to be more confident and brave out on the cross country!
Kirstin delivers the material in a way that even they could understand and start putting into practice straight away
We attended a seminar with Kirstin Kelly desperate to find help - my daughter had had an accident 12 months ago and it affected her mindset to a crippling state when it came to her riding! We had endured a year of tears during 99% of her rides! It was heart breaking for her, for me and her coaches!
We attended the seminar, took away and did the homework, watched the follow up Video, took part in the follow up zoom Call - all happening within about 2 weeks from the initial seminar! I am overjoyed to say that she has not had 1 tear since we attended the first seminar - she also felt confident enough to attend her first competition in about 5 months - the icing on the cake was that she placed in the two rounds she rode!
It really has been a life changer for the both of us - and it has also given me a few basic tools to help her in her day to day riding! Both my kids 8 and 11 yrs enjoyed the seminar, Kirstin delivers the material in a way that even they could understand and start putting into practice straight away! We are excited to work with Kirstin in the future! Thankyou!!!
