006 – Competition Nerves

Dealing with competition nerves can be exhausting and can really make a huge impact on how you perform. In this episode I share what I try to do to control competition nerves and share what I do to be fully prepared on the day.

Mindset is everything when it comes to life and of course our riding and mastering our competition nerves. Often our own inner dialogue and chatter can hold us back from being able to do what we love and perform at our best.

It doesn’t matter whether its just riding on the weekend or at a competition, the same principles can be applied. In this episode I share my competition mindset series of meditations and also let you know what I do the weeks leading up to a competition and what to do on the day to help control anxiety and non-useful inner dialogue.

Read my full article I did here about Dressage Competition Nerves And How To Perform At Your Best as I go into full detail about what I do to help myself be fully prepared on the day.

Tune in here or where ever your favourite source is at youtube, itunes, podbean, stitcher or spotify. My aim is to bring you an episode a week, so if you have any thing you would like me to discuss please do let me know.

I look forward to bringing you what I can and helping you improve your health and wellbeing as a rider, so you can enjoy it even more.
