The gap In Doug’s Riding

Doug first came to me for coaching 4yrs ago and wanted to return to find out why he is comfortable jumping tabletops but not gaps. I laid the outline for the session in my head and worked on the subtle change in his riding techniques and that made a huge difference.

We began with riding over obstacles to enable him to feel the difference in his usual technique and to create a conscious change for him. I drops and tabletops were next before moving to gap jumping. It was awesome to see the smile on his face when he sailed over the first gap jump as he understood what he had done technically and that really made a difference mentally.
