When it comes to confidence, the brain plays a huge part in managing our emotions. Our imagination is a powerful tool, as equestrian mental skills coach Jane Pike explains: “Focus on what you want rather than what it is you want to avoid.” In other words, if you imagine you are more confident you will become more confident.
Jane specialises in giving riders worldwide the skills they need to ride with confidence and the mental fitness to be focused and in the zone for competition.
In the video below, she explains the power of your mind’s eye.
