Here at Mind2Ride we understand the equestrian is like no other sport, the passion we have for our animals is something that can't be described, the dedication and resilience we have is only shared by other riders.
As equestrians we are like no other athlete, we don't just push the limits of ourselves, but we provide confidence and guidance to our horses. When we achieve a connection with our horses it is an amazing feeling, no matter what level or discipline. Here at Mind2Ride we want to help foster our amazing equestrian community! We want to reduce bullying, build confidence and spread the power of what a positive mindset can do. Could you imagine if we put the same positivity and patience that we give to our horses, back into our community?
Why is mental wellness such a big deal?
Did you know 45% of Australians will experience a mental illness in their lifetime? That is almost half the population. Some of the greatest issues for young Australians is stress, anxiety, depression and body image. Although Mind2Ride acknowledges we cannot directly help these complex problems, we can help to break down the stigma around mental health by providing more information around the topic. Did you know one of the leading causes of depression is isolation? We hope to provide a platform where people can speak up about their experiences and see they are not alone.
