WSHE Presents Clinician Heidi McLaughlin

Like many young girls, Heidi McLaughlin was your typical horse-crazy kid! Born into a non-equine blue-collar family with no exposure to horses, all that Heidi ever wanted to do was ride one. Sadly, her first experience in the saddle at eight years old was anything but wonderful when a barn sour horse ran away with her and scared her half to death. While her passion was still there, the terrifying experience left her with a paralyzing fear of the creatures that she loved so much; a fear that would take more than half her lifetime to overcome.

After going to college, marrying, working and devoting herself to raising three sons, Heidi finally set out to indulge her lifetime dream of owning her own horse. It didn’t take long for her to realize that she was in over her head. She bought horse after horse trying to find the right match but what Heidi didn’t know at the time was that her fear was so deep-seeded that no horse on earth would ever be right for her until she first dealt with the real problem, her fear; thus, beginning her long and frustrating journey into fearless horsemanship.

Today, as an author, speaker and clinician on fear, Heidi does not want your journey to be like hers. Her best-selling book, “K.I.C.K. Your Fear of Horses”, was written in the hope that her experience of overcoming fear would inspire others to begin the process to begin to break down their fear and build up their confidence and find joy in the saddle again.

Let her teach you the secrets to becoming a confident rider…a fearless rider!  Please visit her website at: www.fearlessrider.com
