For 10 years, Jo Belasco, Esq. has helped riders who experience fear in the horse-human relationship. Whether it is being afraid of horses on the ground, in the saddle or both, Jo works with people using proven techniques to handle fear and anxiety. She specializes in teaching fearful riders how to use mindfulness as a tool to help understand and move through their fear so they have fun again with horses. Jo conducts seminars, clinics, and webinars, coaches clients online, and sells her “Ride Without Fear” DVD.
Jo teaches in-person via a joint seminar-clinic format. The one-hour seminar provides riders and auditors with psychological tools to help with fear and anxiety. She then works with riders one-on-one for an hour during the clinic portion, helping them apply those tools.
Jo holds a limited number of in-person clinics because she is also a practicing equine attorney and runs a horse program at the nonprofit she heads. In order to help people who cannot attend a clinic in person, she also conducts online webinars and one-on-one coaching. She currently has a limited number of copies of her How to Ride Without Fear DVD available for purchase. Please contact her if you would like to host or attend an in-person clinic, if you want to attend an online webinar, or if you are interested in one-on-one teaching.
