Barrel racers put a lot of effort and expense into improving their skills and developing their horses. But even when they seem to be doing everything right, it's not uncommon to continuously miss the mark in competition. The problem often lies in inconsistencies or weaknesses in the rider's inner game - the aspects of competition that aren't always easy to see, but have perhaps an even greater impact on our end results. Finally, a resource has been created to assist barrel racers on the path to truly becoming more confident from the inside out.

Do you find yourself making excuses not to ride? Are you stuck in the arena? Do you get nervous/anxious before riding/competing? This book will help you to understand your feelings and give you strategies to deal with them. Christine shares with you the Three Keys to Success based on her successful Confident Rider Workshops. Exercises and case studies are included to help you move forward. “Throughout my work as a Riding Teacher I am being constantly challenged by, what seems to be, an increasing amount of pupils who lack confidence—particularly adults. In this excellent book Christine has given us useful tools to help the rider become more confident. Not only does she explain clearly the very essential tool of mental imagery her easy to follow relaxation techniques and ideas for positive goal setting set the rider on the path to once again enjoy their riding. I recommend this book not only to riders of all ages but also to those who teach riding. It will increase knowledge and understanding therefore having an impact on empathy with pupils.” Patrick Print FBHS “The one thing that can really make a difference to your success is breaking down your goal into smaller achievable steps. This book shows you how to do that along with lots of other practical solutions to improve your belief, confidence and enjoyment in riding.” Helen J Bradley Dressage Rider, Trainer and List 1 Judge

Centered Riding is not a style of riding as are dressage, hunter seat, or Western. Rather, it is a way of reeducating a rider’s mind and body to achieve greater balance in order to better communicate with the horse. Founder Sally Swift revolutionized riding by showing that good use of the human body makes a world of difference on horseback. Early in her work, she established what she calls the “Four Basics” — centering, breathing, soft eyes, and building blocks—which, together with grounding, are the main tenets of her method. When a rider learns and maintains these basics, then harmony between horse and human is possible. Sally Swift’s first book, Centered Riding, made its revolutionary appearance in 1985 and continues as one of the best-selling horse books of all time. This second book doesn't replace the first one, it complements it. In the intervening years, Centered Riding continued to evolve, and Sally inevitably developed many new concepts and fresh imagery, all of which are presented here.

This book presents an in-depth, qualitative exploration of the practice of horse-riding by “disabled” and “non-disabled” riders and their horses. Situated as part of an “affective turn” within human geography, creative and original use is made of poststructuralist theory to bring together animal studies and disability studies in order to decentre the human as we think about the social. Eighteen months of multi-sited performance ethnography “on the hoof” were conducted with riders recruited from local riding schools, an internet forum and three Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) groups. The study employed various methods, including diary-keeping, participant observation and video-recording of riding activities, in order to capture moments of horse-human relating. Through these methods, the embodied expressions of horses are taken seriously as demonstrative of their individual thoughts and intentions.
