Build Bravery Through Competence with Boyd Martin


Build Your Own Bravery

At the end of the day, bravery isn’t just some wild concept that riders are  somehow either born with or not. Bravery is something riders can learn to create over time. When a horse is willing to do what's asked of them, it gives a lot of confidence in the saddle, and ultimately, that turns into bravery for both the horse and the rider. In this Masterclass, Boyd Martin takes you through the steps he uses to build competence, and therefor bravery, in his own horse.

Boyd Martin's Lesson Plan

In this lesson, Boyd introduces what bravery is, what bravery is not and how to break it down in such a way that it allows you to grasp a better understanding on how to achieve this mindset. Based on his own experiences, Boyd shares what bravery means to him and how taking the time to study all the different components of bravery can be an absolute game changer in overcoming your limited beliefs as a rider.

In this lesson, Boyd teaches the importance of establishing stability in your position in order to achieve ultimate bravery. Boyd takes you through how to set up your position depending on what obstacles you are facing with your horse and how to adjust accordingly if needed.

In this lesson, Boyd teaches you the importance of establishing a rhythm with your horse in the cross-country phase. While establishing rhythm and pace is important in any phase, especially in the cross- country phase, you want to make sure you have the ability to adjust your horse when needed in order to have your most successful and safe round.

In this lesson, Boyd has his students demonstrate some jumping exercises that will help you establish rhythm in the arena. Similar to practicing in a cross-country field, the goal is to adjust the length of stride using your position rather than your strength. Boyd also goes through the differences between jumping on a cross-country field versus in an enclosed arena.

In this lesson, Boyd explains that making a mistake is not the end of the world. In fact, making a mistake in training is beneficial so your horse is prepared to problem solve on course during a competition if something goes wrong.

This 12 Day training program has invaluable lessons around rider mindset, rider position, and ties Boyd's lessons from the course into a larger landscape for more in-depth practice and mastery.
