Body, Mind & Soul

You put everything into your riding. You love your horse, you meet his needs, you take lessons, you try your best.

Yet still, something seems to be missing sometimes. You are not always convinced you produced your best ride. To ride effortlessly requires physical conditioning, mental skills and intuitive reactions. Body, mind and soul need to be perfectly balanced for you to access your peak performance.

Are you curious about how to incorporate all these elements into your riding career more effectively? You are invited to a talk by Gavin McDermid and Linda Hennings.
