One of the more frequent challenges faced by equestrians is how to improve their performance. They express frustration that they often possess identical-if not superior-physical attributes to their competitors, yet they’re consistently being out-performed by that competition. In many cases, the problem is rooted in self-doubt, which limits their levels of performance.
Using self-hypnosis, and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Laura Boynton King teaches the reader how to identify and accept self-doubt. Once this is achieved, she explains how to stop dwelling on past failures and other negative feelings and images through stress-reduction techniques, positive imagery, and concentration-focusing skills.
Whether the rider feels held back by physical fear-for example, riding a livelier horse or jumping a higher fence than usual -or by negative comments from a competitor, trainer, or horse show judge, or even just by show-ring performance anxiety, The Power To Win will help replace a “losing” mentality with the winning edge.
Illustrated with examples of how the author has helped well-known equestrians, King offers a valuable step-by-step tool for all competitive or recreational riders, as well as for instructors and parents of riders.
The Power To Win is a leg-up toward a blue-ribbon performance.
