An Interview with Pan Am Medalist Tina Irwin
by January 18th, 2012on
I’m guessing you’re probably a lot like me, and want to get better at riding and communicating with your horse, play a bigger game, and stretch out of your comfort zone. So, when I see someone who rides with correctness and sensitivity, and puts the best interest of the horse first, having big success on the world stage I think it lifts us all up!
Successes like these give us a model we can all learn from. That’s why I am so excited to share today’s podcast with you. In it, I interview Canadian dressage rider Tina Irwin.
Tina is a member of the Dressage Team that won the Silver Medal for Canada at the 2011 Pan Am Games in Guadalajara Mexico, a feat she accomplished just six months after giving birth to her first child!
In our interview, Tina shares how she was able to get back into show-shape so quickly, some of the techniques she used to be on top of her game mentally, how every rider can start building a support team to help them in reaching their goals, and a reminder of the most important thing for all of us to focus on: enjoyment of our rides!
