How to Control Fear and Anxiety Lesson Plan

Learn about the basics of fear, and what it's designed to do for us from a positive point of view. 

Discover the science behind fear, and how it effects the body from a physiological perspective. 

Dr. Jenny explains how we can react differently to make fear work for us rather than against us, and when we should stop and listen to our fear!

There is power in words, and Dr. Jenny shows how the words you use to describe your fear and your response to it can have a direct impact on your emotions and actions. 

You don’t need 10,000 hours to form a functional habit, and you don’t need to become an expert, you just need to become more powerful. Dr. Jenny explains how research shows that once you do something daily for 3 weeks, it will become a habit, and the benefits that can come along with it. 

Dr. Jenny takes you through the various ways that being afraid of your horse can effect your riding. 

To progress at riding, you need to try new things - and sometimes those new things can be pretty frightening. Dr. Jenny goes through this flavor of fear, and what you can do to help overcome it. 

Nothing makes a rider more defensive than expecting a stop, and unfortunately, when you expect it, your horse usually does it. Dr. Jenny helps you reset and rewire this common challenge in the saddle. 

After something traumatic or scary happens, resist the urge to get right back on the horse. Take some time to regroup, get the tools and skills you need, and recenter. Nothing good comes from getting back on when you’re still in a fear response mode.
Dr. Jenny explains how after an accident, slow and steady wins the race.

Dr. Jenny shows you how to prepare yourself for competition by developing habits and practicing your tools consistently before you ever need to use them in a competitive setting.

We've all ridden those horses who we felt were just too much for us, even though in reality, they weren't. Dr. Jenny takes a rider through this very common challenge in real-time. 

Part of riding is performing for others, which can be very scary! Dr. Jenny helps a rider through this "flavor" of fear in a real clinic setting. 

Dr. Jenny explains that change is hard, and it takes a lot of work. But, you'll now have the tools, so it’s up to you to put in the work to see real progress.
