Barrel racing is easy: it's feel, timing. and balance. -Ray Hunt

COACHING

I am a coach/mentor and I coach individuals and conduct group sessions rather than hold clinics. By definition a coach has a leadership role, to help, advise, guide and counsel. A mentor is an influential sponsor, counselor or teacher.

"Great Competitors are not always great trainers. Great clinicians do not always compete and great trainers live in a world of their own. Remember that everyone has something to offer and with each experience take with you what you can use and put the rest in storage."

I LOVE THE SAYINGS IN LIFE THAT HELP US ACHIEVE OUR GOALS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH OUR HORSE. I GIVE RECOGNITION TO ALL THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE ME WITH SUCH INSPIRING QUOTES!

WHAT IS COACHING?

With each experience you can learn whether by doing, observing, reading or listening but I have found that coachs and mentors transfer the skills to the client rather than doing the job for them.

Coaches are highly effective when supporting training to ensure that key skills are transferred to the live environment.

Coaches fine tune and develop skills.

Coaches design development activities which are designed to suit client's personal needs.

Coaches support the client in setting appropriate goals and methods of assessing progress in relation to those goals.

I encourage clients to continually improve competencies and to develop new alliances where necessary to achieve their goals.

I encourage a commitment to action, growth and change!

HOW TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR ASPIRATIONS?

You cannot be successful if you don't set long-term and short-term goals.

You cannot be successful if you flinch.

The reason people never reach their goals is they don't define them.

Setting specific goals is an important step and keeps you focused off the many obstacles that will arise when you are striving to do your best.

Goals are dreams with deadlines.

You need long-term goals to keep from being frustrated by short-term failures.

The tragedy is not having goals to reach.

PRACTICE YOUR ABC'S

I have a word for each of my ABC's but here are a few I think of immediately : Ability, Attitude Confidence and Motivation

ABILITY

...is what you are capable of doing - motivation determines what you do - attitude determines how well you do it - and confidence is what your coach gives you to meet your goals.

ATTITUDE

...you have to expect things of yourself - attitudes are contagious IS YOURS WORTH CATCHING? Everyday may not be good but there's something good in every day.

Think of the bumblebee. Engineers have determined that it can't fly, it's body is too heavy for it's wings - but the bumblebee doesn't know that and flies in spite of it's lack of "correct" engineering!

CONFIDENCE

Preparation gives you confidence and the success is laying bricks for a firm foundation when others are throwing the bricks at you.

It's not who you are that holds you back it's who you think you are.

I am not always right but I am not afraid to be wrong.

MOTIVATION

...is simple - eliminate those around you who are not motivated.

You and your horse are a team united in a common goal.

The person who complains about the way the ball bounces is likely the one who dropped it.

Motivation is the desire and passion that comes from within. You must stay centered (stay in the moment).

Live each day with courage, take pride in your work, always finish what you start, do what has to be done, be tough but fair, when you make a promise keep it, talk less and say more, remember some things are not for sale, know when to draw the line.

IT'S YOUR CHOICE. I AM HERE TO HELP YOU WITH THAT CHOICE.
