SNC-CDS Chapter sponsored Sport Psychology Seminar on Saturday August 5th!

Learn how anxiety and fear can impact your show performance, as well as your daily training. Learn strategies for working through these uncomfortable feelings, including some simple exercises that can be incorporated into your daily routine.

Chapter member Seana Adamson PhD has graciously volunteered her time to provide us with her insights at this seminar to be held at Napa Sonoma South on Saturday, August 5th from 4 to 6 pm at no cost to chapter members. Seana is a USDF bronze, silver and gold medalist. She teaches sport psychology seminars to equestrians both nationally (including at a CDS annual meeting) and internationally. She trains at Franktown Meadows in Reno, Nevada.

Please RSVP to jennifer@jenniferasmith.com so we know how many to expect and can plan accordingly. Those attending will be able to purchase drinks/food off the menu.
