How Horse Riding Can Transform Your Menopause Experience: Unexpected Benefits and Insights

May 23, 20243 min read

"Discover How Horse Riding Can Transform Your Menopause Experience with Unexpected Benefits and Insights." - Dr. Sue Williams

Introduction:

Menopause, a significant phase in a woman’s life, typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 and is characterized by the cessation of menstrual cycles and a decline in estrogen levels. This transition can bring about various physical and psychological symptoms, including hot flashes, mood swings, anxiety, and depression. For women engaged in horse riding, these symptoms can significantly impact their performance and enjoyment of the sport. Recent articles and studies highlight both the challenges and potential benefits associated with horse riding during menopause.

Challenges Faced by Women Riders During Menopause:

Many women riders report a lack of awareness and understanding about how menopause affects their riding capabilities. Symptoms such as severe anxiety, mood swings, and physical discomfort can lead some to consider giving up their passion for horse riding. For instance, riders often experience decreased bone density, which is a critical concern given the high-risk nature of equestrian sports (Horse & Hound, 2023).

Physical symptoms such as joint pain, muscle tension, and fatigue are also common. These symptoms can be exacerbated by efforts to counteract weight gain through restrictive dieting, which may further diminish strength and recovery (Horse & Hound, 2023). Additionally, psychological symptoms like anxiety and loss of confidence can severely impact a rider’s ability to engage with their horses and enjoy the sport.

The Benefits of Horse Riding During Menopause:

Despite these challenges, horse riding offers numerous benefits that can help mitigate some menopausal symptoms. Horse riding provides excellent cardiovascular exercise, which can improve mood and reduce stress levels. The physical activity involved in riding helps in maintaining muscle tone, particularly in the abdomen and back, which is crucial for overall fitness and well-being (Menopause Now, 2023).

Moreover, horse riding can serve as a therapeutic activity. The bond between a rider and their horse can provide emotional support, reduce feelings of loneliness, and enhance overall mental health. The act of riding requires concentration and confidence, which can help combat depression and improve self-esteem (Menopause Now, 2023).

Support and Resources:

There are various resources and support systems available for menopausal women involved in horse riding. Websites like Balance Menopause and Menopause Support offer comprehensive information on managing menopausal symptoms, including the benefits of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). HRT has evolved significantly and is now available in plant-based forms, which are less controversial and more acceptable to many women (Horse & Hound, 2023).

Professional advice from healthcare providers is crucial. For instance, British Equestrian’s human physio and athlete health lead, Ashleigh Wallace, emphasizes the importance of a balanced diet rich in leafy greens, berries, high-quality proteins, and omega-3s. She also recommends off-horse high-intensity interval training to promote bone density and reduce inflammation (Horse & Hound, 2023).

Additionally, podcasts and online communities provide platforms for women to share their experiences and gain support. Notable resources include Dr. Louise Newson’s website and the Balance app, which offer symptom tracking and educational materials tailored for menopausal women.

Conclusion:

Navigating menopause while maintaining an active lifestyle in horse riding can be challenging but also rewarding. Awareness and education about menopause are essential for mitigating its impacts and empowering women to continue their passions. With the right support, dietary adjustments, and exercise routines, women can manage their symptoms effectively and maintain their involvement in equestrian activities.

For further information, readers are encouraged to visit resources such as Horse & Hound and Menopause Now, which provide detailed advice and support for menopausal women in the equestrian community.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hypnosis?

It is the bypassing of the critical faculty of the mind and direct communication with the subconscious mind. It feels a lot like a deeply focussed day dream. Another name for it is Monoideism which is essentially having a singular focus.

What is Hypnosis Like?

Have you ever been in a room full of people, feeling as though you are taking part in the group but feeling detached from it?Have you ever had the experience of driving home while being preoccupied by something and suddenly realising that even though you have arrived safely at your destination, you can’t recall driving past familiar landmarks? It’s as if you were on automatic pilot.Have you ever been unsure whether not you did something or simply thought about doing it? For example, did you mail that letter or did you just think about mailing it?Have you ever been so absorbed in an activity that you were able to block out sounds or make them totally unimportant or not even hear them?Have you ever stared into space, thinking of nothing, and been unaware of the passage of time?Have you ever had the experience of remembering a past experience with such clarity and vitality that it was almost as if your were reliving it?Have you ever been able to shut out your surroundings by concentrating very hard on something else?Have you ever had the experience of reading a novel or watching a film and being so absorbed that you forgot about your surroundings, almost living the story?Have you ever been lulled into a dreamy state or put to sleep by a lecture or a concert, even though you were not tired?

What is a Clinical Hypnotherapist?

A Clinical Hypnotherapist is a specialist in hypnosis, who uses the healing state of hypnosis to work with problems or conditions that a client wishes to change.

Can Anyone Be Hypnotised?

Pretty much – some more easily than others. Like anything else in life, the more people practice self-hypnosis, the more easily they can slip into that wonderful relaxed state. The depth that people reach in hypnosis varies between individuals. It is not necessary to achieve a very deep level of hypnosis to bring about change to habits or conditions that are having a negative impact either mentally or physically.A common myth about hypnotisability is when a person says, “No one could hypnotise me" or "I’m too strong minded”. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. A person goes into hypnosis because they choose to. So strong-minded individuals are really good candidates for hypnosis provided they are committed to wanting it to work for them.

Would I Be Asked To Do Anything Against My Will?

This is one of the common misunderstandings associated with hypnosis. This is probably tied in with another misconception that the hypnotherapist has control over the client. This is not the case. People will not do or say anything under hypnosis that they would not do when not in hypnosis. Thanks to TV shows and stage hypnotists, there is a common misconception that you can be hypnotised against your will. It is not true. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis.Research conducted at the University of NSW by Dr Amanda Barnier and reported inThe Sydney Morning Heraldon 2 February 1998, states that “Hypnotised people do not act like robots, nor are they powerless pawns of post-hypnotic suggestionsplanted.

In What Areas Can Hypnotherapy Be Used?

Hypnotherapy can help with smoking cessation, overeating, nail biting, bed wetting, insomnia, headaches, exam nerves, pain, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, bulimia, depression, mood swings, alcoholism, relationship problems, hostility, anger, resentments, worry, guilt, grief, asthma, blood pressure, sexual dysfunction, warts, compulsions.Hypnotherapy has been a great help in improving exam performance, study recall, memory, sports focus, public speaking, personal growth, pain control, performance, assertiveness, childbirth, communication, relaxation, counselling confidence, releasing the past, personal empowerment, goal setting.Hypnosis can be used in the treatment of most disorders, whether mental or otherwise, where the relaxation response promotes the person’s positive mindset. For example, with a physical injury, the person’s mental resources can be enlisted to aid in managing the subsequent discomfort, allow for some rest, and lessen the associated emotional trauma. It must be noted that Hypnotherapy is not a replacement for medical treatment from your doctor.

What Is The History Of Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is not a new modality of treatment. Hypnosis has had a variety of names and has been used for millenia as a means of influencing human behaviour. Therapeutic suggestion and concentration have been practised throughout the history as we have sought to recognise and treat discomfort, disorder and disease. The Celts and Druids practised hypnosis. The Egyptians established “sleep temples” some 4,000 years ago dedicated to therapeutic trance states in which curative suggestions were given. The Bible contains many sections which allude to hypnotic phenomena. Primitive tribes had Shamans who practised ritual, sleep cures and healing suggestions to remove the influences responsible for illness. Undoubtedly, the chants of the earliest medicine men helped many patients to restore their health. Think about the crooning and rocking that a mother uses to help her fitful child into a peaceful state of quiet and sleep.In modern times, hypnosis is usually dated to Vienna in the 1700s and a young physician named Mesmer. The method Mesmer used became known as Mesmerism. Mesmer guided his patients to use their powerful imaginations. By doing so, Mesmer unwittingly lay the corner stone of many present-day therapies. Today, imagery techniques are used in many health care settings, with cancer patients, and in the areas of sports and business motivation.In 1855, English surgeon, James Esdaile, used hypnotic skills in India. He operated on three thousand patients, of which three hundred were major procedures. He discovered the mortality rate dropped from 50% to 5%, and that many of his patients recovered more quickly, had increased resistance to infection, and had greater comfort. He presented his findings to the Royal Academy of Physicians in London. His work was denounced as blasphemous because “God intended for people to suffer”.During the 1st and 2nd World Wars, interest in hypnosis was heightened because hypnosis was found to be very effective in combating war neurosis. The success of hypnosis in dismissing symptoms through a reliving of the events of a traumatic experience created a wave of enthusiasm for hypnotic methods.It is probably true to say that hypnosis is clouded with more myths and misconceptions than any other form of psychological practice, even though these misconceptions have their roots in long-distant history and have no foundation in fact.In Australia and elsewhere throughout the world, hypnotherapy is now recognised as a valuable therapeutic methodology.

Am I Unconscious Or Asleep When Hypnotised?

No. In hypnosis, the conscious mind takes a rest. Hypnosis allows you and the hypnotherapist to tap into the storehouse of information that lies in the subconscious (or unconscious mind) and makes positive changes to thought patterns, habits or the effects of traumatic incidents that are having a negative impact either mentally or physically.
