Athletes, like companies, also function by building brands, meaning your success may be closely tied to whatever brand you decide to define yourself by.

Being Qualified Is Not the Same as Being Prepared

I’ve been in this game a long time now and have had my fair share of ups and downs and mistakes along the way. I think that if you choose eventing as your sport, then it’s inevitable that you have some bumps in the road and moments of reflection when things don’t quite go to plan.
