Be a quiet cheerleader of yourself, but a LOUD & PROUD champion of others
"Be a quiet cheerleader of yourself, but a LOUD and PROUD champion of others".🎉📣 Be the person who celebrates easily the success and progress of friends, peers and competitors alike - because what we can celebrate for others is a measure of what we can accept for ourselves! And be also the person who knows that the celebration is a mere coming-together, a deserved and well earned culmination of countless, glory-less hours - blood, sweat and tears... and it's THIS that we are celebrating and applauding, not the ribbon or round of a moment.
And for yourself, be the person who is dedicated and applied to the work, not the glory... find joy in the working it out, putting it together. Creating the partnership and harmony with your horse. Cherish those sudden and surprising epiphanies and breakthroughs... they are magical wonder-juice that can fuel good moods for days - but don't any less value those hard fought, slogging, incremental, tiny by tiny inches of progress and learnings.... Because this is where you learn to BACK-YOURSELF, not only in good times, but especially in the hard times, those towel-throwing in times, and it's those lessons of a life-time that will have your peers championing and celebrating for you on those happy culminations when it does all come together for the result! Happy riding, Stef x
About Me: Hello, I'm Stef Winwood, and I love to help riders regain their riding confidence and ditch fear and nerves in the saddle - for good! As a rider, breeder, coach and ex 'nervous nelly' myself, I know how debilitating and frustrating fear and nerves can be, especially when they are robbing us of enjoying our pride and joy - our magnificent horses! Ditching fear and nerves takes so much more than just hours in the saddle, it takes powerful mindset and strategy work off the horse to rebuild how you think and feel on your horse. Find out more here
