🔹Tuesday, October 18/evening workshop session
🔹Wednesday, October 19 Lessons

The StressLess Riding Program was developed by Andrea Waldo, a psychotherapist and a US Eventing Association certified riding instructor. The program teaches creative, practical mental strategies and skills to help riders move past their fears and toward a calm, focused mindset.

Andrea draws on techniques and knowledge from Sport Psychology, Solution-Oriented Therapy, Neuropsychology and classical riding.

What really matters is that it helps you as the rider to reach your goals and dreams in the saddle…without ever making you feel stupid for being afraid or telling you to “just relax”.

Riders become more confident and successful in the saddle, and riding becomes more enjoyable and fulfilling. Isn’t this why we ride in the first place?
