Enforced time out of the saddle during lockdown combined with a cancelled competition calendar, can all increase riding and competition nerves. In this blog, we look at ways you can create that winning mindset for equestrian life after lockdown.

With the current government advice, avoiding the crowds will hopefully help stem the coronavirus outbreak.
