De-Spook YOU ~The Missing Piece of the Horse Riders Confidence Puzzle


If you aren’t getting the full experience with your horse that you would like to have because of confidence, please read on!


We work hard to help our horses become “bomb proof” and confident, well now it’s time to De-Spook You™.


My clients, who are Olympic hopefuls, backyard riders and everything in between, have shared with me the thousands of dollars they’ve spent on training gear, clinics, lessons, books, DVD’s, CD’s etc all to help their HORSES overcome fear and become more confident.  Then there’s the time that they’ve spent; days and weeks going to clinics and lessons only to come home and not be able to practice what they learned because they’re out of the “safe” clinic or lesson environment.  Frustrating!  And then there’s the mental and emotional “junk” that we carry around with us; the thoughts, beliefs and especially the subconscious gremlins that keep you from having the ride of your life.


How much have you spent on helping yourself become more confident!?!  More often than not, the missing piece of the puzzle is you, not your horse!


Your trainer (if you’ve chosen the right one for you) can help you with your horsemanship, but they typically don’t have the want or expertise to help you with your confidence beyond the riding lesson. 


From Diane in Europe

“I am an accomplished equestrian, riding every day with a premier riding instructor.  However there has always been a challenge with my confidence even though it’s ever so small, which has kept me from reaching my true potential and my horse reaching his.  Within the first 3 weeks of “Squash Fear Gain Confidence”, I was amazed at the small things that made such a BIG difference!  As we progressed through the 12 weeks, I continued to progress with my horse so much so that we were able to accomplish flying lead changes, the start of a piaffe and feeling great cantering outside in the open!  I am so happy that I was introduced to Anke and the coaching that she provides, and I know if my horse could write part of this he’d be saying thanks too!!”


This year, make it YOUR year.  Schedule a complimentary coaching demo phone call to see if coaching with me is the right fit for you and your confidence.  If you have a horse and want more confidence so that you can have that ride of your dreams, the one you imagined when you first got into horses, you owe it to yourself to “kick the tires” with a coaching demo call.


You’ll be amazed at how much more those clinics, lessons, books, DVD’s pay off when YOU have the confidence and leadership that you need to be the partner your horse wishes you would become in your relationship with your horse.


Group coaching classes starting the week of Feb 28th, and there are only 5 spots available, so don’t delay in getting your free coaching call demo.  Call 608-467-0008 to schedule your no cost call, or on the web .  It’s time to de-spook you by taking Squash Fear and Gain Confidence!

Hello fellow group members.

Just wanted to introduce myself as well. As a Registered Equine Massage Therapist, I do therapeutic bodywork on horses to help them stay comfortable in their bodies and perform to the best of their ability. I also write about equine health issues for TROT magazine and other publications (if you are an OEF member, check out the current Winter edition of Whoa! to learn more about your horse's muscles and keeping them healthy). If you are interested in learning more about what I do as an REMT, or in reading some of my other articles, please visit my website: I'm starting a free quarterly equine health newsletter this year and encourage you to sign up (currently at the bottom of my home page).

If you have any questions for me or suggestions for what you'd like to see a horse health article about, please feel free to contact me.


Looking forward to getting to know you all better.

I just have found Barn Mice and I am looking forword to seeing more of what's going on in the horse world beyond my back window ! My first stop was the news about the wild mustang situation and what we can do to help. Even if it's just bringing about awareness of what is really going on with them. On a lighter note I think the mare watch is going to be one of my most frequent visits. If you get a chance please check out my horseshoes on the web and let me know what you think. Being a 4-H family I really must give 4-H ers and 4-H clubs a discount on my horseshoes ! You can see a few of them on my member page or my web-site at

My name is Linda Finstad - I am an equine photographer - this is a great way to earn a living but there is lots of competition after all everyone has a camera and everyone love taking pictures of horses. SO to survive in this ecconomy and enviroment I had to get a little creative. So I created an "Equine Photography workshop" and I partner with riding clubs and associations who host the workshop. It was really popular last year and next year I will add a second course - "How to passion of photography into a profitable business" I thought sharing my secrets and experience would hurt my business - However that was not the case in fact my photography business has shown tremedous growth.
