BEING AND FEELING SAFE
Feelings of safety are absolutely necessary for our mental, emotional and physical well being.
I don’t know about you, but I was taught to ignore my fear and anxiety and be brave.
They were so wrong.
Fear is simply a message that there is something going on here to be worried about and when we listen to and take action on that fear to make ourselves be and feel safe, then pfft! it’s gone.
Fear is our excellent survival instinct at work and we shouldn’t be ignoring it. Ignoring any level of fear or anxiety actually gets in the way of the fun and happiness that we are looking for with our horse.
When I hear people say things like “face your fear and do it anyway” I shake my head. When we ignore our fear and nerves, we are actually risking getting hurt.
Sure, there are some old fears/even traumas that can raise their head again when there is no CURRENT risk of being hurt – but when we slow down and allow ourselves to listen to and understand those old fears, then the pain of them can be truly released – gone just as easily as the present day fears are when they’re understood and acted on. This is VERY powerful work.
Just pause on that for a minute, because it’s a VERY big deal. When we slow down and allow ourselves to listen to and understand those old fears, then the pain of them is pfft! gone. Pffft is the sound of something going really fast. 🙂
Then there’s this thing that happens with fear and excitement. They both operate out of the adrenal glands and when we DON’T use fear to make ourselves safe the way it was designed, they feel very similar. They kind of collapse together and then we can’t tell the difference. I think it’s actually excitement that people are talking about when they say things like “face your fear and do it anyway”. (I just can’t believe that they really want you to give up your survival mechanism!)
My life has been transformed since I can recognize excitement and enjoy it, instead of running from it.
“Get back on that horse” they said after a fall. Are they CRAZY? Who made that rubbish up? How about fixing the cause of the problem first before you risk injury getting back on again? I am shaking my head. On so many levels, it just doesn’t make sense.
“Never show your fear to the horse.” That one actually makes me laugh. How ridiculous! Our horse is aware of every nuance of fear and tension in us, probably long before we are.
Here’s the real deal. When we ignore our fear and soldier bravely on anyway, we are ignoring our Inner Guidance system that is so incredibly valuable in keeping us safe. And it’s feeling safe that enables us to experience all the good stuff with our horses – which can be different for all of us, but for me it is happiness and love and joyfulness and excitement and feeling good in everything that I do with my horse – whether that be riding in the bush or training for piaffe or moving the neighbour’s cows or float training Oliver.
Confidence looks different for different people
For Kristine Nesbitt, a double World Champion Reining Rider, a recurring shoulder discomfort had its origins in a lack of confidence about loping a particular horse and the answer that brought her release was totally unexpected. There’s an audio interview with her on the blog where she talks about what that lesson meant to her.
For another lady, her fear was so debilitating that she couldn’t lead her horse out of the paddock without shaking with fear. Most people with confidence issues will no doubt be somewhere between those two extremes. 🙂
We each of us gets to THIS point in our lives, with THIS horse, uniquely – and to REALLY solve the confidence problem, the solution/s will need to be just as unique. On Fast Track, we show you how to deal with your own issues as an individual (and we can hold your hand while you do that if you need it). People learn to find an ease and confidence between themselves and their horse – releasing even old fears and terrors – and the benefits of that flows into their lives outside of horses as well.
Simple techniques – powerful outcomes.
On Fast Track we systematically and step by step eliminate every cause of our nerves and anxiety and the whole process itself becomes this beautiful journey of happiness and joyfulness that unfolds into being able to do everything that you ever dreamed of with your horse.
And the foundation of that is that you not only deserve to BE safe, you deserve to FEEL safe. You and your horse both.
You and your horse both… What will that feel like for you?
And from that safety, comes confidence.

In The Fast Track Program you get:
♦ More than 8o lessons – a mix of interactive audio and video lessons for the wonderful magnetic riding seat that I keep raving about and lessons to help you to help your horse become that happy co-operative partner.
You’ll get the links to the lessons in your Inbox once or twice a week. You’ll also get access to the entire Fast Track program once you have enrolled so that you can work faster at your own pace, if that’s your preference.
♦ A monthly Live Seminar (10 per year “God willing and the creek don’t rise” as my Texan friend says). I often do short sessions of working with people one on one in a live seminar – it’s part of my absolute commitment to make sure that everyone on Fast Track develops their Feel with their horse.
There’s an invaluable archive of these going back years – a treasure house of lessons and live discussion, an opportunity for questions and success stories that personalize the course – a wonderful opportunity to hang out with like minded people.
You can join in as often and for as long as you like, live or recorded – it’s totally up to you, there are no restrictions. There are people who are still joining in for the cameraderie years later and we constantly develop new information, add lessons and find different ways to explain things.
♦ A private Student Forum – So you can share your journey and experiences with our lovely community of like minded people. This is an incredible resource. There’s a whole section with questions and answers on individual Fast Track lessons. As at March 2019 there were also 34 Extra Lessons from Jenny on a vast number of topics and problems.
♦ A Lifetime Support System – The support is phenomenal. I don’t know anyone anywhere, that gives this much support for an on line program and you get access to that support, to the Live Seminars and the Student Forum, for as long as you need or want to.
♦ Access to live teaching – includes the opportunity for one on one sessions available with me or our seriously wonderful other staff. Lots of you will have a FREE private lesson with me that comes as a bonus with your Fast Track purchase.
♦ My “Love this program or get your money back” Guarantee.
Fast Track Program Bonuses
There are a number of different enrollment options to make life easier – please note that only the upfront payment includes these bonuses:
♦ Private lesson with Jenny – to be used whenever suits you, no time limit. People have told me that this lesson is pure gold. Some people use it straight away to get more confidence with their Feel, others save it to use for when a problem crops up. Technology makes video lessons so easy these days.
♦ Oliver’s Diary – We’re eight lessons into this lesson set, with more to be released from time to time as my workload permits. You’ll read about and sometimes watch live footage of what turned Oliver from a dangerous horse with “a screw loose” into my giant teddy bear.
Enrolment Options: weekly, or monthly OR a whopping discount for payment up front.
