Daniel teaches to an enthusiastic crowd at Equine Affaire in Springfield, MA.

Daniel teaches to an enthusiastic crowd at Equine Affaire in Springfield, MA.

It was a real treat to catch TSB author Daniel Stewart’s Pressure Proof Clinic using his “Playground” of jumping exercises at Equine Affaire this past weekend. As always, Daniel’s energy, enthusiasm, and humor had the crowd of spectators engaged and laughing.

It was truly remarkable to watch as the three very good young riders participating began the “game-show-like” exercises fully in control of their position and performance. But regardless of their ability at the beginning of the clinic, every one of them “cracked” in some way under the pressure as Daniel threw curve ball after curve ball at them. The point, however, wasn’t the “cracking,” but the way the riders handled themselves after making a mistake or forgetting a line: By the end of the session, all three had developed the ability to take what had gone wrong and learn from it, rather than let it drag them down.

Daniel’s fabulous new book PRESSURE PROOF YOUR RIDING is now available from the TSB online bookstore (where shipping in the US is always free). We caught up with Daniel during Equine Affaire and asked him about his clinics, his books, and how he stays energized enough to energize others.

TSB: Can you tell us about how you came up with the idea for your Pressure Proof clinics and the concepts that are the basis for your new book PRESSURE PROOF YOUR RIDING?

Daniel: I remember a young rider telling me that she used to think riding was so fun and enjoyable…until she started showing! Once she did she started to feel nervous, frustrated, and disappointed all the time, and no matter how hard she worked on her leg and position, she couldn’t get over it. Around the same time I read an article stating that over 60 percent of adolescent athletes quit sports all together because of what they called “a lack of fun.” It was then that I decided to develop a program to help riders not only do what they love, but to also love what they do.

TSB: You have provided mentoring and coaching for a number of WEG and Olympic teams. What is it like preparing equestrian athletes for international competition? Do you coach riders who compete differently than you coach those who just want to rider their best at home or on the trail?

Daniel: I’ve always believed that all riders—regardless of whether they’re competitive or recreational—can benefit from a little positive thinking, practice in goal-setting, and ways to cope with pressure. I don’t actually set out to train Olympic riders differently than others, or competitive riders differently than recreational—what I try and do instead is to train each rider as an individual. (I don’t believe there’s a mental training program for all riders—I believe that there’s a mental training program for each rider!) Identifying the exact behaviors and needs of each individual rider is the best way to build a program to help him or her overcome specific mental challenges.

TSB: You provide a number of fun exercises and “Pressure Proof Projects” in your book to help riders develop confidence and cool in the saddle. What is one of your favorite exercises and why?

Daniel: I think my favorite exercise has to be building “cue words” (acronyms that remind us what we should remember). We all have plenty of great things to remember, but sometimes pressure has a weird way of making us forget them (ominously referred to as Stress Induced Amnesia!) Arming ourselves with a “wordplay reminder” like BEST (Balance Every Single Transition), BLAST (Breathe, Laugh, and Smile Today), LOGO (Laugh Or Get Off), and LUCKY (Look Up Cluck Kick Yell) can help us to remember all the great lessons our trainers have taught us.

TSB: Lucinda Fredericks, who won the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event on Headley Britannia in 2009, is pictured on the front of PRESSURE PROOF YOUR RIDING. What is it about the photo of Lucinda that captures what you hope to provide riders with your techniques and exercises?

Daniel: What I love most about this photo is how Lucinda is looking down at Brit, and even though one happy hand is fist-pumping in the air, the other is down congratulating Brit! I think this photo does a wonderful job of showing the amazing bond between horse and rider. It also reminds me of a young rider who once rode his heart out, gave a 120 percent, never gave up, and in the end finished with this same kind of fist-pump in the air! Not because he won, but because he came in third knowing that it was the best ride of his life. It wasn’t important to him what color ribbon he won, it was more important to him that he gave everything to his horse, and that his horse give his everything right back.

TSB: You work a lot with Pony Clubbers and young riders. What do you like best about mentoring kids who love horses and love riding?

Daniel: What I love most about working with young riders is the energy, excitement, and laughter that they bring to my clinics. I always do my best to inspire riders to be their best, but when I work with energetic, excited, and fun young riders, they inspire me to be my best! I guess what I love most about working with them is their laughter. Children laugh up to 400 times a day, while most adults only do so about 17. I’ve always believed that emotions are contagious, and I love catching the “laughter bug” from them! I also just really enjoy working with youngsters—when I’m not on the road teaching clinics, I’m the volunteer lunch lady at my daughter’s school and the volunteer librarian at my son’s!

TSB: This summer you were on the road for two months for a 50-clinic, 42-city sold out tour! We’re dying to know your secrets for keeping yourself “up” for each new stop—how did you stay energized enough to energize others?

Daniel: I have the world’s greatest and most simple trick, and I use it (and it works) every single time. The trick is simply this: When I pull up into the parking lot of the barn where I’ll be teaching my clinic, I turn off the car, take a deep breath, smile a big smile and then say the most important four words I can think of, “Have fun today, Danny.” I know it doesn’t sound like much, but I allow these words to remind me how lucky I am to be a riding coach and what an honor it is to be able to teach what I love.

In the end, it’s this little smile and sentence that keeps my energy up and reminds me that the world’s greatest teachers never expect their students to be more excited about learning than they are about teaching.

TSB: Tell us about the first time you remember sitting on a horse.

Daniel: I didn’t come from an equestrian family, instead, I started riding for a very understandable reason… because all the girls were hanging out at the barn!! My first crush was a rider so I started riding at her barn—just long enough to find my second crush, and then my third and fourth and so on! By the time I was 20 I was the most popular boy in the whole zip code!

My first actual ride was pretty ridiculous: I started to freak out so I asked my girlfriend what in the world the horse was doing, and she said (somewhat sarcastically), “Ah, he’s walking, that’s what horses do.” My first really meaningful experience happened one freezing winter morning when I was haying horses behind a large wind-break. A school horse came up to me and leaned into me, basically pinning me between him and the wooden wind-break, not because he wanted to hurt me, but because he wanted to gain a little heat from me! It was at that second that I became a rider, because it was then that I fell in love with horses (in addition to all the girls at the barn…)

TSB: Tell us about the first time you remember falling off a horse.

Daniel: It happened when I was really young. I knew what the full seat canter was, but I hadn’t yet learned that there was such a thing as a half-seat. Well, one day the mare I was riding started getting a little forward so I just started moving my hips a little faster so I could stay deep in the saddle. She then got faster so I moved faster, and so on and so on! Before long she was at a full gallop, and I was still trying to keep up with my full seat canter (which I know now was just encouraging her to go faster!) until it became obvious things weren’t going to work out well. So, when I couldn’t keep up I just made the decision to jump and pull the rip-cord.

The good news is that I landed on my feet with the reins in my hand and just ran beside the mare until she slowed down!

TSB: If you were trapped on a desert island with a horse and a book, what breed of horse would it be and which book would you choose?

Daniel: Wow, that’s a weird combination, a horse and a book….Well, I’ve never met a horse that I didn’t like, but if I had a to choose I’d have to go with an Irish Sport Horse because of their competitive spirit and sheer guts. I think the world of these wonderful horses. As for the book, I recently read The Hunger Games and loved it. So if I’m going to be stuck on an island somewhere, I hope I’ll have Catching Fire and Mockingjay with me.

TSB: If you had an iPad and WiFi on your island, what movie would you stream?

Daniel: First of all if I was on an island I would most definitely have my iPad with me because I don’t go anywhere without it! As for the movie… it would be a toss up between Grown-ups and Saving Nemo! I can watch them all day long and never get tired of them, and when you and your horse have done everything right but it still goes wrong…just keep swimming!

TSB: What is the quality you most like in a friend?

Daniel: Initially I’d like to say dependability, kindness, or loyalty…but then I’d have to go with answer “D”—all of the above.

TSB: What is the quality you most like in a horse?

Daniel: Like I mentioned before I love a horse with a huge competitive spirit and big heart. Like a great rider, when the horse’s head and heart work together, anything is possible!

TSB: If you could do one thing on horseback or with a horse that you haven’t yet done, what would it be?

Daniel: Wow… this is a cool question. I’ve gone swimming, surfing, and even skiing with a horse, but I’ve never gone skydiving or scuba diving with one. Realistically, I grew up as a jumper and eventer but what I’d really, really love to do is buy a big ole western saddle with a ton of silver on it and go reining, cutting, and team-penning! I admire the Quarter Horses who make these sports such a blast, and I hope I can try them—hopefully sooner rather than later!

TSB: What is your idea of the perfect meal?

Daniel: Any meal with my wife and children! I teach clinics in different cities 45 weekends a year and miss my family a lot. Oh yeah…anything with the word “pizza” in it is also going to be a big hit with me.

TSB: What is your idea of the perfect vacation?

Daniel: Any vacation with my wife and children! Actually I fell in love with Greece during the 2004 Olympics but never really had the time to explore. If I had the time I’d love to go back there and take a boat through the Greek islands. Maybe on the way home we’d stop in the south of France. There’s an area there called Camargue with some of the worlds coolest horses. And my wife and I spent our honeymoon in San Tropez so it would be neat to see it again.

TSB: If you could have a conversation with one famous person, alive or dead, who would it be?

Daniel: Steve Jobs. I’d like to ask him how to use a computer. I believe I’m a good coach but my office management skills are sadly lacking, and I’m sure it would be easier if he could show me a few tricks! If he isn’t available, I’d like to talk to the guy who invented the TV remote control.

TSB: What is your motto?

Daniel: I love mottos and my favorite is definitely “Your horse doesn’t care how much you know until he knows how much you care.” Coming in a close second is probably, “What lies in front of you and what lies behind you pale in comparison to what lies inside you.”

Checking out all the new horse products [in the massive trade show] is my main focus for the daytime hours. I feel very privileged to participate this year and can’t wait to talk to people about our unique approach to human/horse relationships.”

We’re back from a super-fun and really busy five-day stint at Equine Affaire in Springfield, Massachusetts. Thanks again to everyone who made sure to stop by and meet Cindy Meehl, director of the award-winning documentary BUCK and the new 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN DVD series!

As we approach Thanksgiving, it’s time to start thinking about holiday gifts for the horsepeople in your life. We featured two great ideas at EA, and they are still available on our website!

7 Clinics with Buck Brannaman the complete series makes a great gift set!

The complete series (all 7 discs and 10 hours) of 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN is available for $145 from the TSB online bookstore (CLICK HERE) where shipping in the US is always FREE.

“The tone of 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN is undoubtedly one of learning and communicating with the horse,” says the review in the November issue of Western Horseman. “Brannaman’s message from the documentary rings true in the seven-disc package: Do better by the horse in order to do better in life.”

Crown Prince and Crown Prince Challenged make a great gift set for the young horse lover in your life!

And, for all the young horse lovers you know, the first two books in the exciting new fiction series by Linda Snow McLoon, CROWN PRINCE and CROWN PRINCE CHALLENGED, are available for purchase together for $17.95 (CLICK HERE).

“I really enjoyed the characters, the story line, and the writing, and more than anything else, the horsemanship that is woven into Crown Prince and Crown Prince Challenged,” says Susan Harris, author of  the US Pony Club Manuals of Horsemanship; Horse Gaits, Balance and Movement; Anatomy in Motion DVDs; and Grooming to Win. “I found the characters (especially Sarah Wagner), the horses, and the problems they face, believable and interesting, and the setting (a good boarding and teaching barn) authentic in today’s horse world, right down to the Jack Russell terriers. The reader will learn a lot about horses, good riding and horsemanship through these novels, but it’s part of the story, not a ‘lesson.’ I enjoyed the first book so much that I went right on to the second, and now I’m hoping the author is working on the next one! I highly recommend these books!”

Don’t wait to start on your holiday shopping! Order now while these great gift sets are available!

Well, the TSB staff is back at work after four days at Equine Affaire in West Springfield, Massachusetts. As usual, the event proved a terrific opportunity to speak one-on-one with customers about the books we have now, and the books we should have in the future. One of our goals is to provide the riding and horse-loving public the information they most need and crave.

We also got to watch some great clinics and learn a little something, to boot. As equestrian book publishers and editors, it is good to keep our eyes, ears, and mind open to the new ideas and techniques that horsemen and women are bringing to light all around the world—these ideas and techniques are fluid and ever-changing. The industry is not one to stagnate, and it is important to us that we don’t, either.

For those of you that came by the TSB booth this past weekend, don’t forget to use the show-special coupon on the front of our catalog for great discounts (and just in time for the holidays) on our website www.HorseandRiderBooks.com.

If you couldn’t make it to EA Massachusetts this year, here’s a little glimpse of the fun we had with our featured authors in the TSB booth. Hope to see you (and meet you!) in 2012!

Alongside Guenter Seidel (dressage), Tiana Coudray (eventing), and Andrea Fappani (reining), among others, Anne Kursinski was named one of America’s Favorite Equestrians for 2011.

Established by the EQUUS Foundation and the United States Equestrian Federation, America’s Favorite Equestrian recognizes the heroes in our equestrian sports and builds grassroots support within the equestrian community for the many worthy causes supported by The EQUUS Foundation. The EQUUS Foundation was established in August 2002 as a 501(c)(3) national charitable foundation and is dedicated to improving the quality of life for horses, promoting the use of horses to enrich the lives of those in need, and educating the public about the horse’s unique ability to empower, teach, and heal.

America’s Favorite Equestrians were selected by popular vote—athletes with the highest number of votes recorded in each of the eight disciplines on October 31, 2011, were named the winners in their respective disciplines.

You can meet Anne Kursinski at Equine Affaire, November 10 through 13 in West Springfield, Massachusetts. We’ll have her book ANNE KURSINSKI’S RIDING AND JUMPING CLINIC (just out in paperback) available at the Trafalgar Square Books booth #843-844 in the Better Living Center. And, Anne will be signing copies and chatting with her fans at the TSB booth on Thursday, November 10, from 4:30 to 5:30 PM.
