Possessing the right mind-set and mental skills has long been vital in achieving top performances in all sports. And yet to many riders mental fitness still remains an afterthought. InPerfect Mind: Perfect Ride, the author demonstrates how to develop and achieve the attitude, motivation, and mental skills to make the most of the rider's abilities, whether riding as recreation or as a competitive sport. Horses are highly sensitive flight animals-they'll react first and ask questions, well, never! This means that every time riders get on their horses, they need to be fully committed, aware and in control of their bodies, their thoughts, and their emotions, in order to communicate with their horses in precisely the right manner.The combination of research in the field of sport psychology and real-life examples contained in this book will help readers identify with and understand different topics.
