Sports Performance – Dressage

I had bought a new horse and we were performing badly with low scores. I showed Sara videos. Sara listened, and explained to me in easy language that I had now formed negative expectations and that these were translating to the horse. I listened to her guidance and realised it was going to be a series of small progressive steps and the first was to manage my own emotions so that I could then improve my focus and concentration. Sara devised a plan and this included bringing back some fun into my riding and reducing the demands and the pressure – both my horse and I feel much happier people now and we have returned to competing with improved scores!
