Here’s the question Dr. Cohn answers this week about how to concentrate while warming up for competition:
PAULA ASKS: “I have a hard time focusing fully on my warmup and my horse. I find I let outside distractions interfere with my warmup before I go into the ring. I would like to get into the zone where I am only aware of my horse and not any outside distractions, including riders, trainers, etc. What do you think I should focus on during the warm-up so I can perform my best?”
