Sports Psychology for the Rider

Sports Psychology for the Rider
22nd February 2016

This was an entertaining and informative evening, put on by the club and Ied by BE coach, Elspeth Carr, addressing the issues surrounding our fears and phobias when riding and what techniques we can use to overcome them. A good audience of thirty or so took part in the workshop and Q&A session as well enjoying the hospitality of the Bradford Arms. Elspeth covered the three recognised stages. She went on to looking at visualisation and positive self-talk, and what methods and routines we can adopt to help us stay calm and focused in our riding. We all came away inspired having set targets for both ourselves and our horses. We also raised over £100 for the Brooke Hospital.
