Free 30-Minute Consultation

Equestrian Mental Performance Coach Annika McGivern is on a mission to help riders develop the mental fitness required for success in their sport, and to help riders have a little more fun in the saddle along the way. Many riders struggle with low confidence, high show nerves and anxiety, or are haunted by a bad fall. Still more experience difficulty pushing through the natural fear that accompanies jumping bigger or moving up a level.

An Equine Canada Competition Coach with an MSc in Sport and Exercise Psychology and over 15 years of experience in the equestrian industry, Annika helps riders move past these challenges by teaching simple, practical, and effective mental skills and tools. Once you understand the mental block that’s holding you back, you can overcome it. Working with Annika sheds light on what’s going on in your head and gives you the tools to move forward with confidence. 

For a limited time, Annika is offering HORSEJournals.com readers a free 30-minute consultation to improve their mental skills. Contact Annika at annika@annikamcgivern.com and mention “Horse Journals” to take advantage of this offer.
