Pressure Proof Your Riding

We decided to continue on the path of rider focus and the mental toughness needed for competition and optimal performance. After last month we're fascinated with rider psychology and the importance of it. So our April book review is on Pressure Proof Your Riding: Mental Training Techniques, Gain Confidence and Get Motivated So You (and Your Horse) Achieve Peak Performance by Daniel Stewart.

The Science of Equestrian Sports

For this month's book review we decided to focus on the rider with The Science of Equestrian Sports: Theory, Practice and Performance of the Equestrian Rider by Dr. Inga Wolframm. Dr. Wolframm's research interests focus on psychological, physiological and social processes in the rider, including horse-rider interactions.
