Things We Did In 2016

Winning the Mind Game in Training- 7pm -Tuesday 20th December at Crockstead Farm Hotel
Eastbourne Road,Halland BN8 6PT 

Training Your Brain for Success in Equestrian Sport -with Charlie Unwin

Brand NEW talks for 2017 at 14 venues around the UK

Training Your Brain for Success in Equestrian Sport
Imagine you could take the best bits of your training and replicate them every time you compete. How good would you be?
Could you be achieving more by doing less?
Could you be learning and improving quicker than you are?

These are just some of the questions that Olympic psychologist Charlie Unwin will be exploring in his NEW series of winter talks exploring the mental habits of highly effective riders in training. Using cutting-edge research to look at what the future might hold and insights from some of the world’s best riders and elite performers, Charlie will share the mental routines and psychological techniques used in training to make huge gains in competition.

“In my experience we learn less about the mindset of world-class performers from the 3% of time they spend in competition, and more from the 97% of time they spend in training. Get into the wrong habits and we dramatically limit our potential, get into the rights habits and we might be surprised what we are capable of achieving”

Charlie Unwin

With over 2,000 competitive riders attending Charlie’s talks and workshops in 2016, his NEW talk will help you to…

  • Achieve greater performance gains in less time
  • Train in a way that makes you more confident and mentally prepared for competition
  • Recognise and avoid the negative effects of social media whilst maximising the positive effects
  • Apply “Inside-Out” thinking as a tool for continuous improvement & goal-setting
  • Use Mental Simulation to enhance the quality and control of your training
  • Train yourself to stay focused and manage distractions more effectively
  • Train your intuitions so that you make better decisions without thinking

The talk is relevant to competitive riders of all levels, as well as coaches and parents.

Last year tickets sold out well in advance so please book early.
