Four words that describe how you want\need to feel when you ride - either schooling or out on cross country.

Mine currently are:

Fearless
Confident
Focused
Strong

What are yours?

That's a good one asterix! I may have to make some changes...

Creaghgal yours sound great and I can't wait to get (back) there. My mare has been giving me a hard time so I am putting a lot of emphasis on fearless right now.

Anyone else?

LOL- I don't know why but I read the thread title fast and automatically inserted "letter". Then thought to myself- yeah I use a lot of four letter words around horses :winkgrin:

Balanced
Confident
Correct
&
happy :)

Terrified
Exhilarated
Focus
HAPPY

Good thing (based on my first word) that I am in the Baby Novice world! I am working on changing that part.

My own personal motto: Like. I. Stole. It.

But there is the ever popular:
Grab. Mane. Kick. On.

And when in doubt:
Keep. On. Going. Forward.

I have big-time confidence issues on my young horse. When I stop worrying and just focus on doing the technical things I need to do, I do great. So my current motto is:

Shut
Up
and
Ride!

I was thinking about this just the other day! I love having key words to calm my mind when I compete. When I used to swim I would pick 4 or 5 words to chant between breaths to keep me motivated.

Balance? (check)
Power? (check)
KICK
KICK

Hm....maybe instead of counting I could say these! What do you think, Cookieponie? I can hear you now ... THIS IS GUNNA ROCK THIS IS GUNNA ROCK...
