In 2008 I was fortunate to be selected as an Educator at EQUITANA Melbourne. EQUITANA has been running in Melbourne for a few years and now this year it comes to Sydney!
With its origins in Essen, Germany EQUITANA is a celebration of everything equestrian. EQUITANA in Australia is the most anticipated annual equine event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere attracting over 50,000 visitors per event.
The next EQUITANA will be held at the Sydney Showground (Sydney Olympic Park) from 10th to 13th November 2011.
EQUITANA Sydney will be four days of everything equine featuring horses, Olympic gold medallists, world renowned educators, aussie cowboys, an elite equine competition program and over 350 exhibitors making up the largest equine shopping spree in Australia.
I will be speaking on Friday November 11 in the John Deere Arena at 11:30 am, and then again on Sunday 13 November in the Southee Horse Health Classroom at 1:45 pm.
My subject is quite unique and I have many happy clients in Australia and around the world. My clients include beginners through to international riders and my presentation includes something to interest everyone.
Traditional sports psychology deals only with the conscious mind. My method employs Hypnotherapy and the structuring of correctly worded suggestions which are given to the subconscious mind to effect immediate, positive, and long lasting change. I explain the difference, and why and how Hypnotherapy helps riders.
Most riders spend the majority of their time training on the physical skills and forget the vital role their thought processes play. My presentation demonstrates how the rider affects the performance of the horse, and how nerves and lack of confidence affect our riding. I explain some of the reasons for this and how a rider can become more confident, focused, and effective.
I look forward to seeing you there!
