Mental Training Techniques to Gain Confidence and Get Motivated So You (and Your Horse) Achieve Peak Performance Daniel Stewart
TheHorseStudio.com Copyrighted Review:-
Mind-blowing. Daniel Stewart has done a wicked good job of taking a complex subject and making it truly accessible. The cartoon illustrations bring great mental images and humor, which naturally help you retain the thoughts. I used to follow Jane Savoie and also the In Search of Your Image by Hassler, and thought these were good resources. But Daniel has brought a delightfully fresh and insightful look at how to gain confidence and stay motivated. " It's not what you look at but what you see," is a great quote from the book and there are so many others that also really make you think about how you think. A nice production here ( as usual), from the publishing house of Trafalgar and don't be fooled, there is some serious in depth psychological advice here. It is just so cleverly put together both in text and layout that you find yourself learning and channeling without even trying. Highly recommended and hats off to both the editor and author of this book.
