VIDEO: Flow State in Elite Eventers

Flow State in Elite Eventers

Watch eventer Ashley Johnsons's presentation from the 2021 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention titled Flow State in Eventers. In the spring of 2021, Ashley Johnson conducted research for her master’s thesis on the influence of performance strategies and baseline resilience levels on the thresholds of flow state that elite eventers experienced during competition. This was an original study that she conceived of because she thought eventing is a fascinating and challenging sport mentally, and event riders are truly a breed of their own! Unlike many other sports, eventing is a high-risk sport that encompasses both male and female athletes from a variety of nationalities and age levels, yet in the realm of performance psychology, virtually no research has been done on eventers. For her study, Johnson was able to collect data from athletes competing at every FEI competition in the United States from the beginning of the year through the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. In this talk, she will discuss her findings.
