60-90 MINUTE UN-MOUNTED SESSIONS:

GOAL SETTING WORKSHOP FOR RIDERS – You don’t have to show to have Goals! Attendees learn the key elements of successful goal setting, create a positive plan, and receive tips for achieving their goals – not just setting them.  Get on track and plan your progress!  Great foundation session for trainers who wish to build on the topic individually with students afterwards.

EQUESTRIAN MENTAL FITNESS – Whether schooling or showing, what we think can impact how we ride! Understand effective strategies for maintaining a Positive Mindset. Plus, learn various Creative Imagery and Visualization techniques to help riders increase confidence and perform at their best.

PRESSURE PROOF YOUR RIDE WITH MUSIC – Mentally prepare for shows, clinics or a stressful ride using Music Motivation and techniques created by former USEF Coach, Daniel Stewart. Learn strategies for staying focused when the unexpected happens. These fun and effective skills help riders tackle show jitters and increase confidence when riding under pressure.

PRESSURE PROOF PLANS & PREPARATIONS – Learn how to overcome the “what if’s” of worry through greater awareness of your thoughts, body language, breathing and routines. Create a personal pre-ride ritual to get in the zone of concentration and ride at your best – even if you experience a mistake.

COMBINE TWO TOPICS FOR A FUN CLINIC (2 – 2.5 hours of content):  

GOAL SETTING & EQUESTRIAN MENTAL FITNESS – This program partners Goal Setting with Equestrian Mental Fitness for two seminars in one day.  Riders learn to think forward and plan their success. Offer lunch in between or add a demonstration that highlights your barn’s specialty!

PRESSURE PROOF PLANS FOR A CONFIDENT & FOCUSED RIDE – Combine both Pressure Proof sessions for a program that really develops the competition mindset. Don’t show? No problem! These preparations benefits riders in and out of the show ring. Learn how to sharpen focus, overcome worrisome distractions, and make the most of mistakes. Maximize learning by scheduling a mid-point lunch or break.
