About The Event

In the last number of years, Poppy has built a strong reputation for her specialist ability to influence the performance of Equestrian athletes, coaches and industry professionals. Creating an environment for success, Poppy helps individuals to perform consistently and thrive under pressure.

The sport of Showjumping has evolved remarkably over the past couple of years and the increase in shows, spectators and mainstream media has meant that show jumpers have also had to evolve into professional athletes both physically and mentally. Psychology has come to the fore of this new game and the top riders around the world are now citing it's importance in both training and competition.

​Poppy (B.Sc OT, M.Sc PMC) has an in depth knowledge of the equine industry and understands the unique demands of competition and equestrian business. Poppy works with individuals to put in place the right mental strategies to support human performance at home and at competition.

''I believe that horse sport offers up a very unique area of performance psychology, not only due to the obvious link between rider mentality and the performance of the equine partner but also for the unique requirements and associated lifestyle of the sport. Unlike other sports, horse sport is considered completely consuming and much less structured than more traditional sports. Requiring attention seven days a week, many participants choose to use the sport as a means of income creating higher stakes and greater pressure. It can often be hard for participants to see the woods for the trees while the treadmill is continuous spinning. I believe the strength of a good athlete or business leader is in the ability take control of their situation and put in place mental strategies, structures and goals which will allow them to optimise their potential.
