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. 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?
StressLess Riding draws on techniques and knowledge from Sport Psychology, Solution-Oriented Therapy, Neuropsychology and classical riding. But 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”.
The format is an unmounted workshop Saturday afternoon, which lasts about three and a half hours, and then rides all day Sunday. Privates will be 45 minutes long, Groups will be an hour and a half.
