The Lizard brain" refers to the oldest part of the brain, the brain stem, responsible for primitive survival instincts such as aggression and fear ("flight or fight"). The limbic system is responsible for, among other things, our emotional bonding to other creatures--other humans such as family members and friends.
Regardless of age, experience, or ability, the truth is that those who ride horses - often suffer from fear, anxiety, nervousness and other performance blocks.
Author, riding instructor, rider and psychotherapist Andrea Waldo uses her decades of expertise to develop simple exercises and a comprehensive set of tools to improve rider confidence and effectiveness in the saddle.
Brain Training for Riders introduces techniques, while helping equestrians to understand their emotions as an interaction between their brain chemistry and experiences.
