From the Publisher:

It takes more than learning the technicalities of riding to become a competent equestrian. Here, Dr. Ann Reilly shows how to become a better rider by avoiding the common psychological stumbling blocks. She offers in-depth discussions on motivation, confidence, concentration, and nutrition and complements her analyses with exercises designed to help every rider achieve peak performance. Special sections on preparing for competitions, in all the various riding disciplines, will be invaluable to those seeking to improve their results in the show ring. Though geared toward the equestrian, Reilly's strategies are beneficial to anyone who is seeking success. Ann Reilly has taught at the University of Virginia and Sweet Briar College. She is co-editor of the standard work "Sport Psychology: Psychological Considerations in Maximizing Sport Performance" and lives in Virginia.

Book Description The Crowood Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2000. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Is your riding performance a series of peaks and troughs? Do you find it hard to concentrate on the right things? Are you easily distracted by negative thoughts? Do you lack self-confidence, fear it, or confuse it with arrogance? Does your riding lack goals and ambition? Do you prepare properly for competition? A Sport Psychology Workbook for Riders deals with these issues, and more, in a clear, realistic and sympathetic way. While the author clearly emphasizes the need for technical proficiency, she makes the point that becoming a truly competent rider involves much more than just technique. Effective riding is ultimately a two-way communication between rider and horse, and the benefits of the rider being relaxed, confident and focused are enormous. In this book, the reader is taught how to achieve this beneficial state through employing mental strategies that are used by top riders (and other athletes) whilst training and competing. These strategies are explained in logical, down-to-earth terms, cutting through the muddled and destructive thinking which so often bedevils performance. While the book focuses primarily upon preparation and performance in the competitive disciplines, the ideas and strategies expounded will be of equal value to all riders who want to achieve a happy and successful relationship with their horse. Furthermore, since sport psychology is the psychology of peak performance, the strategies on offer have many positive applications in daily life. Seller Inventory # AA99780851317717
