Eventing is a demanding sport both mentally and physically. The three different phases require intelligence, training and competing skills, and bravery.  At any competition level, an eventer can experience problems such as loss of confidence, fear of injury, inability to focus or to perform efficiently under pressure. Often, an individual is unaware of self-talk or habits that are counterproductive. Discussion with a qualified sports counselor can help that eventer develop the insight and desire to identify and implement more productive attitudes and behaviors.
