This title addresses the topic of coaching and the value to the rider of learning to coach themselves. Coaching is a supportive, one-to-one relationship that helps individuals with all kinds of goal-setting, decision-making and achievement, whether in sport, at work or at home. A coach will assume: that you have the commitment and the ability to acquire the skills necessary to achieve your goals; that you know a lot more than you realize about what can help you - and also what is holding you back; that it is possible to break even the grandest goals down into achievable steps; and that you gain just as much useful information from the problems you encounter as from the things that you find easy and do well. In this clear and accessible book NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) coach and trainer Wendy Jago shows how you can use the core skills of coaching to coach yourself and help you and your horse become the best that you can be. She explains every stage of the coaching process, from its basic beliefs through to the practicalities of making sure that every ride has a purpose and a valuable outcome. Straightforward exercises and examples from everyday riding help you at every stage.
Longer case studies from Wendy's coaching sessions illustrate coaching in practice and demonstrate how quickly and effectively it is possible to learn to coach yourself.
