This step by step practical lesson teaches you the exact skills and exercises you need to establish the connection, control, and communication you need with your horse to succeed in the saddle.
How to Master Performing Under Pressure
Learn from the master of performing under pressure – in this lesson, Ian teaches his theory of practicing until ‘you can’t get it wrong’, his distinctive approach to visualization, how to overcome a fear of failure and let failures work in your favor, finding your ultimate pressure level for peak performance, building a true support system, and mentally preparing for any course or competition setting.
The Right Way to Prepare for Competition, at Home
Study the theories of deep learning and the underlying psychology of successful competitive riders, understand the ‘P-principle’ and how it influences a competitive mindset, then get step-by-step practical instruction on exactly how to practice at home for competition, including schooling long and illogical courses, practicing for spooky jumps, and dealing with outside distractions.

Film Review: Analyzing a Jump-Off
Technical skills get put to the test in this unique film review based lesson, where Ian analyzes the details – big and small – that separate a winning horse and rider. Borrowing from other competitive sports such as football and tennis, we use competition footage, detailed analysis, and instant replays to show what gives Ian the winning edge in this highly competitive jump-off, as he explains how you can put those elements into practice in your own riding.
Tying It All Together
Recap the most important takeaways from each lesson, with a focus on combining them all into a cohesive practice that you can use throughout your riding career to continuously grow, improve, and reach new goals.
