The Sandi Simons Confidence Clinics were started in 1998 and they have grown with Sandi travelling all over Australia, New Zealand and the USA, helping Women and their horses. Clinics are attended by 8-10 riders and are held for the two days over a weekend. “Groundwork is always the basis of what I do; your horse has to be safe and predictable on the ground before you put your butt in the saddle. I have a system to ‘ask’ the horse if he or she is ready to be ridden, are they listening, do they have established safety cues and responses when you’re in the saddle?”
Sandi’s understands that everyone has different needs, so she tailors her clinics to accommodate everyone’s personal needs.
One of the things that Sandi sees is the emotional connection with the riders and their animals. A lot of women’s emotions often come out in the Clinics. Sometimes it’s got nothing to do with the horse and rider, it might be coming from external sources like jobs, families or the pressure of looking after your children, losing yourself in life” she said. “I’ve had women who haven’t recognised these and are reduced to tears when they realise how lost they have become, that’s when I not only offer training but emotional support and coaching to the attendees. Mostly, when they have a good relationship with their horses then this can rub off in to other areas in their life and make them feel ‘whole’ again.
There is nothing mysterious or difficult about this and these methods are easily achievable for everyone so that the safety and confidence you need to thoroughly enjoy time out with your horse can be attained. Live your dream, love your passion and come and see what it is all about. AFTER ALL YOU ARE WORTH IT!
