The workshop will be really fun, interactive & insightful, we will start with the basics and background of general sport psychology and learning how we can apply
some of the core sport psych concepts and strategies to our training / competition struggles. We will discuss some of the core ‘mental’ challenges in which equestrians 
are faced with in their day to day training environments, then discuss some useful take home tips, focusing on mindset, resilience and confidence building. We will discuss 
the application of some of the core mental skills, effectively your tool box for coping at competition or when you are under pressure.
