Mindset Magic is a VIP Membership for female Equestrians who want to succeed and win!


My Professional Life

If you're reading this you're likely a female Equestrian with a desire to succeed.
And you feel stuck. 
You want to succeed and you're not sure how to do it. 
You may have some ideas but you're craving the experience from other successful equestrians who have been there and done that. And can share their wisdom and expertise with you so you feel more confident in making decisions.
Welcome to Mindset Magic.

Mindset Magic has been created by me, Julia, accredited Master NLP Practitioner and Coach, Master Hypnotherapist and Master Time Line® therapist. Running my own highly successful equestrian business and coaching equestrian ladies since 2016, I'm also an accredited Master Empowered Equestrian™ Coach.

That means I know a thing or two about Equestrian success.

And I want to share my wisdom with you.

Who is Mindset Magic for?

It's for you if....

  • You want to be successful and you're not reaching the heights you dream of - yet!

  • You're so passionate about success as it's basically your life (we equestrians don't go into things half heartedly)

  • You want to spend each and every day thriving (not surviving!) 

  • You have a fire in your belly that's not going away any time soon and you want to turn that fire into something special.

It's for you if you want to move at pace and you have an insatiable appetite to improve.


Here's what Deborah says about working with me

I am a grade II Para Dressage rider who, despite moving forward successfully in able bodied and Para Dressage with my self trained mare, lacked self belief. I felt that I was always "knocking on the door" of my dream without knowing how to walk in. Julia has, via a carefully tailored plan, raised my levels of motivation and confidence to train and compete with real focus after lockdown. 

This has seeped into every aspect of my life and I find that I am more forward thinking and positive than I thought possible; the effect is incredible and uplifting, and I am able to turn negatives into positives.

Julia is always there: a real Coach and Mentor. I can't recommend Julia's coaching highly enough it's life changing and powerful.

My Life Story

My years spent with horses have given me the passion and drive to share with you what I have learned and continue to learn. It’s a journey that never ends.

I have been riding horses since I was about 6 years old, and was never the most confident rider. However with Jake, my horse of a lifetime, I have done more than I could ever dream of.

I bought Jake as a 5 year old, ID x TB, who had hunted in Ireland but could not canter a circle! He took me eventing within 6 months of us becoming a partnership and delivered the most amazing dressage scores due to his light paces and careful, brave jump! We evented at pre-novice for a couple of years, then my trainer took Jake to intermediate.

2002 brought the urge to try side-saddle, and Jake took to it like a duck to water. We collected a wide and diverse wardrobe, ranging from vintage hunting habit to reproduction Georgian habit. I set up a group to promote side-saddle riding and we gave displays at many country show and game fairs, riding to modern upbeat music.

What's included in Mindset Magic?

We also discovered natural horsemanship in 2011 and Jake was invited by Monty Roberts to be in his demonstration at Myerscough College, because of his fear of donkeys. It was an amazing experience to work with Monty and Kelly Marks, and Jake with Lucy the Donkey was featured in the Intelligent Horsemanship Christmas DVD.

Jake and I continued our horsemanship journey and TREC up until November 2016 when I retired Jake aged 27.  He had an idyllic retirement in Shropshire, doing what horses do best, eating, sleeping and pooping. Since then, I have followed the principles of horsemanship and was lucky enough to meet and have dinner with Buck Brannaman in 2015.

In 2017 I found Perry at Hopton Rehabilitation and Homing. I had been tentatively looking for another horse after Jake retired, and preferably a rescue horse. I wanted to give something  back to the equine community.


Perry had some issues, however I was confident we could work through them. He is nothing like Jake (15hh bay Welsh cross compared to 17hh grey IDxTB). He was very nervous and stressy, so my natural calm and laid back attitude suited him. 

We got on like a house on fire. He was a super safe hack, he earned the nickname quad bike. With regular coaching from Sally Brett we soon developed a mutually trusting partnership, and continue to improve as each day goes on. In 2019 we achieved one of our goals to ride with Buck Brannaman in his clinic at Aintree Racecourse in the UK. What a star, Perry took everything in his stride, 25 horses working together in the arena.

Upon joining you'll receive an email with next steps. If upon joining you don't feel the membership is right for you, you can cancel at anytime.

Sadly, on the 13th February 2020, it was the end of an era. I lost Jake after a short bout of colic and aged 31, he was put to sleep to graze pastures new in peace.

I'm often told that I am a compassionate and motivational coach. 

Amongst the areas I deliver for these clients are performance coaching for equestrians, motivational goal setting and inspirational business coaching, alongside compassionate life coaching.


I have a diverse portfolio of clients and  I specialise in ladies who dream of success, and need a helping hand to stop faffing and take action. Ladies who want someone to help find their motivation, their inspiration and help them stay calm when challenges arise.

Do you start to think about how to start, but the thought of starting is just too much? Have you already done lots of research but need a helping hand to get you on the right road? The thought of dealing with everything, leaves you feeling overwhelmed and your confidence disappears in a flash?​

I have been riding horses since I was about 6 years old, and was never the most confident rider. However with Jake, my horse of a lifetime, I have done more than I could ever dream of.

 Here's a taster of what's going on in

Mindset Magic 

Module 1 - Take Action, Stop Procrastinating

During this module we are focusing on 6 key reasons why you may be procastinating:



Not having a clear vision for the future is one of the biggest reasons people procrastinate. If you can’t see the benefits of completing certain tasks why would you bother starting them?
Have a clear picture of all that needs to be achieved and the reasons why, you are much more likely to be motivated to get going and get things done.

is the most popular excuse banded about for not getting things done. But fortunately there are very few people in this world that don’t have the scope for becoming at least 10% more efficient. Being busy doesn’t equate to being efficient. Regularly when someone lacks time in their lives, it is due to poor organization skills, poor prioritization or the inability to say no. Learn to become more efficient with one’s time. This can free up many hours a week to get the more important stuff done.

The infamous words of Peter Druker say it clearly “Fail to Plan and Plan to Fail”. If you are disorganized and don’t keep a schedule you are likely to forget tasks and miss deadlines.


Some people fear failure; they won’t be able to do the task to a good enough standard so they delay in getting started. Others — believe it or not — fear success. They may know that by completing a certain task, the outcome may lead them places they are unsure they want to go.


In the modern age we are bombarded with technology and external stimulation that it becomes more difficult to stay focused.

Turn off email notifications and only check emails at allocated times during your day. Switch off your phone and allow messages to go to voicemail. Close your office door and let people know you are not to be disturbed. Remember to stay in control of your technology and not let it control you.


Some tasks at hand can make us feel overwhelmed, mostly because we don’t know how to get started.
Break it down into bite sized chunks. Then break it down even more. Plan each part of the task so that you are focusing on completing the sub task rather than the overall task. This helps to feel in control and not overwhelmed
But the best and simplest advice is to make a start on any important task. No matter how small or how insignificant in the overall picture, just get moving.
