#95 High Performance Habits for Show Season



Ever wonder why you always put on one boot first and not the other?

Habits. We all have ‘em. Habits of action, and habits of thought. As our competitive horse show season ramps up, we explore the critical role of your mental habits—both the ones that hinder you and those that can help you excel.  


I share insights from a longtime client who struggled with competition stress and how reshaping her mental habits led to breakthroughs not just in performance, but in her enjoyment of the sport.

We discuss unhelpful mental habits, as well as 4 mental habits you can adopt today for a better, more confident and resilient show season.


We break down why your brain reacts to pressure the way it does and provide practical strategies for rewiring your responses. 

This episode is for anyone looking to step into the show ring with confidence and leave the unnecessary stress at the barn door. 

Tune in as we unpack these strategies and set the stage for a season of success.
