Can anyone recommend a good freelance instructor for the Whitchurch area. Preferably someone who would be up for assisting with hacking and is good at building confidence. Thanks

I can't help you find an instructor, but I can offer you some useful advice re confidence building when riding and hacking out.

Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.
Have you ever noticed your breathing? Deep diaphragmatic breathing gives the body a low centre of gravity. Shallow upper chest breathing, panicky breathing, raises the body's centre of gravity.
The deeper you can breathe when you ride, the lower your centre of gravity will be, making you more stable on the horse. Stability in the rider's body leads to confidence, lack of confidence when riding leads to instability in the rider.

Have you ever noticed how you breathe when riding in the school vs hacking out?
