Taking the Stress Out of Competing - 28 min. 23 sec. Day 1 Ourselves; Mindset, Riding, Health
Competing can be stressful! But there are certain things that you can do to manage your day & make it as stress free as possible. Firstly, I outline WHY you want it to be as stress free as possible – how stress affects your horse, leading to him/her not performing the same when out at a competition as they do at home. I then give you easy to manage pointers to help keep you day as stress free as possible – some you may do already but some you may not have even thought about. So, whether you are seasoned competitor, or just wanting to have a go at your first competition, this talk is for you!
Confidence More Than Thinking - 29 min. 49 sec. Day 2 Ourselves; Mindset, Riding, Health
Traditionally within the riding world, there has been an attitude of “Don’t show you’re frightened, just kick on!”. While for a few riders, this may work, for the vast majority they often find themselves feeling alone, useless & giving up. This attitude also leads to the rider becoming dissociated from their body & feelings, which as our horse listens to our body language may have the opposite effect! In this talk I discuss how we can become more aware of what our body is doing & our beliefs when we lack confidence, compared to if you are confident. You then have the choice to change your body language, changing your relationship with your horse.
