Summary "Addressing the psychology of competing in equestrian events, this handbook helps riders confront and alleviate the anxiety that often presents itself in competition. Pressure, stress, nerves, distraction, and anxiety are feelings that go hand-in-hand with participating in such events, forcing riders to deal with the competitive nature of showing. Walking riders through specific tools and tricks that can be used to manage and overcome the panic that can hinder performance, this training manual also offers advice on how to embrace and enjoy every minute of performing with an equine partner. From "Plan the Ride, and Ride the Plan," to overall mental training, this must-have book is a fantastic tool for any competitor who wants to conquer their show jitters and do their best at every competition, while feeling confident and happy throughout the experience"-- Provided by publisher.
