As I gear up to start recording season 4 of the podcasts I wanted to do a little update for you guys on some of the lessons I have been learning in the past 6 months. 

In life, we are forever evolving, changing, and growing and one area I have noticed a big difference in my outlook on my time and energy. Going from a very hectic schedule to a more balanced one. 

Make sure to share with me on social media when you are listening and how you have found it.

Maeve is a specialist Physiotherapist for horse riders and runs online exercise programmes with a resistance Bungi to improve riders performance.  This topic is one which I am fascinated with as I am always looking to improve myself for my horses. 

Maeve has so much knowledge and advice on helping riders and I have been doing her pre-riding warm-up for a while now and really feel a difference.
