For the first time ever, an equestrian sport psychology class… on your horse where you belong!

As riders, we continually encounter stressful and unpredictable events and how we handle them greatly influences our ability to succeed. With this in mind, all riders ride in two of 7 unique mental preparation clinics. For our clinic at Don Bar Farm, the first clinic ride is called “THE ZIPPER” and the second ride is called “STRIDES”) to learn how to control feelings of stress, confusion, doubt, distraction and show-jitters (in our practices) so that these negative emotions no longer affect us in our competitions.
