One unique part of equestrian sports is the unique relationship riders have amazing relationships with horses. It puts a premium on your own self-regulation, given that your horse can feel (and react to) any dysregulation. This makes being focused on the present moment even more imporant. Rather than getting caught up in “what-ifs” or insecurities about appearance, and choking, the mind can be quieted by developing better self-talk habits, learning to calm the body by training the breath (we will demonstrate with biofeedback), and imagery skills (tapping into other resources such as video to optimize mental rehearsal). This series of workshops for beginners and professionals alike, will address these skills, allow you to practice between sessions, and check in on your progress of integrating skills into life and into riding.
Workshops, with Dr. Tim Herzog, will be at Karmic Run Stables, from 1:00-2:30pm over three Saturdays this Fall/Winter (2019-2020):
Each workshop will build on the prior weeks and there will be (easy-ish) homework, but folks can easily dive in if they miss prior weeks.
Participation* is $40/workshop OR $99 to attend all three!
*Individual work can also happen onsite before or after each meeting. Follow-ups would be at Dr. Tim’s office in Annapolis and/or via video-conference. Reach out to Tim for more details:
