Competing can become intense, stressful and challenging at times… The better you prepare yourself and your horse, the more likely you’ll have a successful outing.

Below is a Competition Checklist to assist in packing for your next event.

This will keep you organised and will reduce the anxiety on not knowing what to pack.

Please feel free to share with friends or family, and keep a copy in your float for future use. 

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be uploading footage on the items I like to pack….and why…..keep an eye out on the Equine Mind Coach – Facebook and Instagram page.

Happy Packing & most of all…Enjoy your Event!

EQUITANA Auckland returns to New Zealand this November! 

Following the record-breaking 20th anniversary of EQUITANA Melbourne 2018, the New Zealand EQUITANA team is proud to bring you the biggest names in equestrian sport this November.

Equitana Auckland is pleased to announce Equine Mind Coach as part of
their innovative Education Program for 2019.

Fiona Howell, founder of Equine Mind Coach will be presenting
informative seminars throughout the 4-day event in November.

“At some point, most riders experience nerves, anxiety
or a forgetful mind. Whether it’s from a previous bad
encounter or overcoming the fear of competing in front of a crowd.

You can learn how to control and overcome these nervous
behaviours and start to enjoy riding! Believing in yourself starts today,
so you can have a successful tomorrow!”
