“Your mind is like a garden: When you plant a conscious thought your subconscious will make it grow,” says TSB author and sport psychologist Daniel Stewart. “When you consciously say, ‘I know my jump course,’ or ‘I know my reining pattern,’ your subconscious mind will work hard to make it happen. It takes what it hears, sets it as a goal, then works to make it come true. It believes everything you say to yourself and directs action toward it.

“You have to be careful, though,” Daniel warns, “because your subconscious is not discriminating. It’ll grow negative seeds just as quickly as positive ones. This means that if you consciously say to yourself, ‘I always forget my course or my pattern,’ your subconscious mind will set that as a goal and work to make that happen, as well.”

Daniel has spent a lifetime training equestrian athletes to “Pressure Proof” their riding, giving them specific tools and tricks that help them plant “positive seeds” and that can be used to manage the stress, nerves, distraction, and panic that so often hinder ability and performance. The November 2013 issue of Practical Horseman Magazine, which goes on sale October 22, features an excerpt from Daniel’s brand new book PRESSURE PROOF YOUR RIDING. The excerpt shares some of the clearly defined, individual steps to mental and physical success in the saddle from the book, complete with the humor and enthusiasm that have become Daniel’s trademark (and that ensure you have FUN doing whatever it is you like to do with your horse!)

Daniel also made a recent appearance on the Horse Radio Network’s Stable Scoop Radio Show, where he talked about his new book with hosts Helena Bee and Glenn the Geek. Click the image below to listen to the show:

Grand prix rider and trainer Britta Schoeffmann was featured on the Horse Radio Network’s Stable Scoop Radio Show last week! Don’t miss this episode, hosted by Glenn the Geek and Helena Bee, who not only delve into the details of Britta’s book DRESSAGE TRAINING–CUSTOMIZED, but also provide a recommendation for a cool new smartphone app to make packing for horse-related trips easier and more organized.

Over the course of the interview, Helena and Britta examine the idea that all sizes, shapes, breeds, and genders of horses need to be dealt with differently in the course of training for any sport–not just dressage. One blanket policy, philosophy, or technique cannot be applied to every horse you ride or own, across the board. You must customize your position, your methods, and your goals so they are in sync with the abilities, the temperament, and the tendencies of the individual horse.

“This is one of my favorite training books of all time,” says host Helena Bee about DRESSAGE TRAINING–CUSTOMIZED. “It is one of the most informative books on getting from Point A to Point B with your horse that I’ve come across.”

Helena and Glenn are a hoot and a blast–they know horses and have a sense of humor and terrific guests. If you haven’t made the Horse Radio Network a regular stop in your online travels, DO!
