2) Mental Mindset
Sophia’s understanding of biomechanics makes the physical training easier for the horse and rider. This allows the horse to learn quicker and with less stress. Both mentally and physically, the horse stays sounder longer. The rider is able to stay in better balance in all circumstances.
Sophia teaches mental mindset tools that help turn failures into successes. These tools develop skills of awareness, dealing with fears and doubts, and accomplishing future goals. All of which builds confidence.
Sophia’s intuition bridges the gap in communication and helps bring out the best in the pair’s relationship. She intuitively knows what needs and questions pop up in the moment. As those needs are addressed and questions answered, it opens up space for understanding and coming together as a strong partnership.
These 3 pillars create Happy, Confident Performance in and out of the arena.
