At the Olympics Steve Redgrave said that 90% of performance on the day is due to Mindset.
Whether we are leisure or competition riders we know that our mindset affects both us AND our horses - so how do we get it right? This can also be a challenge for our Coaches and Trainers.
BHS Scotland is running a session with Katie Sinnott, an experienced Sports Psychologist. This will be an interactive session with exercises such as, looking at the 'controllables' within one's (equestrian) life and how the use of a technique called 'thought-stopping' can change negative self-talk into positive self-talk.
Cost: £15 for BHS Accredited Professional Coaches; £20 for others.
This counts towards CPD for BHS Accredited Professional Coaches (2 CPD points).
Katie has over 10 years experience providing psychological support to individual athletes, squads, coaches and officials of varying ages and standards, from amateur/club level up to, and including, World, Commonwealth, European and Paralympic champions and across 39 sports from Archery to Wrestling.

“Really made me look at the way I prepare for and think at a competition” - an active BRC and BD member.
“I found her very helpful. It really helped me to focus on the controllables, especially when my boot zip burst as I got on to warm up! Improved focus helped me to warm up effectively and I was happy with our performance. I will continue to use the techniques she showed us.” – an active BRC and BD member.
“Thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Gave me pointers to work on. Give 100% when you ride! Don’t doubt yourself! – a new riding club member who competes at unaffiliated dressage.
