Phil, Ali, Ian and Andy's skills day
I went through the mental skills questions that I teach and in no time at all they all rode all three drops, landing perfectly.
Now it came time to apply both mental and physical skills to our final technique, jumping tabletops. Using a 6ft tabletop , I demonstrated the same skills as all the other techniques and they followed suit. I worked hard on Ali's mental skills and in time they all flew over it and landed perfectly time and again! Ali was so chuffed at doing what she felt was impossible for her previously and she watched as Phil, Andy and Ian rode the 6ft gap jump too with whoops of joys as they did. Our session ended under the hot sun with a cold beer each and a riding demonstration by myself, on the herts woodwork.
