“Mental performance techniques build confidence, foster consistency in performance, and help riders achieve their goals.” – Tonya Johnston
About MeI’m Linda Hennings. I am passionate about helping people find new ways to do ordinary things better. As a rider myself, I know how we tend to focus all our attention on our horses – nothing is too much trouble for them and it gives us great pleasure to make sure they have everything they could possibly need: bodywork, supplements, the latest equipment, carrots, love and so on.
Its easy to forget the vital role of rider mental preparation. I have arrived at more than one show with every possible piece of equipment, many hours of lessons under my belt and not a single usable mental skill in place.
After years of helping leaders and teams in corporate get their game plan on, I needed to turn those skills into mindset strategies that I could use. I delved into my knowledge base of coaching for enhanced performance, looked at all the material I had gathered about how adults learn, and began to research the specific issues that riders face.
