Winterize Your Ride

A Sport Psychology Seminar – All are welcome.

December 9, 2013 from 7 – 9 pm

The Sheila Johnson Performing Arts Theater at The Hill School in Middleburg, VA

The coming of winter often brings both riders and their horses a change in routine and/or much-needed time off. What many don’t realize is that winter offers great opportunities for riders and their horses to improve their ride. Yes… I said improve your ride in the off-season. In this seminar you will learn how to:

  • Perform a Positive Post-Season Postmortem
  • Use the winter months to improve your Mental Attitude and “Grit”
  • Strengthen your Focus, Confidence, Skill and Enjoyment in your riding
  • Rejuvenate your Relationship with your horse

The cost is $25 and includes dessert and coffee. For more information contact Dr. Haefner at 703.727.3205 or email him at haefner@ridingfar.com. Directions are available on the Hill School website: www.thehillschool.org under helpful links.
