  • Develop your career if you are already an enlightened coach/instructor.
  • Practical self improvement & involvement with assignments, self assessment

The knowledge and techniques included on the course have helped literally thousands of riders be more confident and / or get the mental edge in competition.

The course tutors Martin Murphy & Emma Corbett run training groups both here and in Europe. Martin has contributed regularly to Horse & Rider magazine and his work has featured in many other media worldwide. Martin has worked with the BHS on instructor training.

The benefits for instructors/coaches are:

  • The use of modern ‘mind training’ ideas to help clients overcome unspoken ridden confidence issues.
  • Gain new mind blowing tools and help competition clients achieve new heights.
  • Increase your client base by using new tools and winning skills.
  • Become the enlightened instructor with that special insight that your clients will talk about.

The benefits for riders can be enormous – so much more confidence in themselves and their horse.

Sometimes the instructor can see there is a confidence issue although the rider has yet to admit it. Often it is never discussed.  In fact it is ignored and the rider never moves forwards.

Ideal for horse riders who want to compete and win, or overcome those frustrating times when apprehension causes butterflies. 

It is tutored by Martin Murphy a professional life coach and Emma Corbett a professional coach and rider.    Martin Murphy & Emma Corbett
