    Default Good COTH article about Sports Psychology

    Great and helpful article! Take a look at it if you have time.

    Thought this was an insightful article. I know I can't always put in amazing rounds time after time. I also know that I tend to beat myself up when I mess up during one of my show rounds.

    I didn't know that Kip Rosenthal was a sports psychologist, no wonder her riders do so well, she really knows how to mentally prepare them.

    Anyways, just wanted to share this good read in case some of you didn't see it posted.

    Thanks for posting the link. I've been working very hard on all these things in weekly sessions with a Sports Psychology Coach and it's been a great experience!

    I read that the other day and I loved it! I just got "Inside Your Ride" for my birthday (I asked: I need all the help I can get in this department) that I'm working through, too. But I just loved the idea of naming the butterflies. I think that will help me a lot.
