Daniel Stewart Clinic on Sport Psychology, Rider Fitness and Confidence Building for Riders and other Athletes

May 14-15, 2016, Sugar Creek Stables, Albany WI


Daniel Stewart

Daniel is a former Olympic Coach whose job was to coach any USEA rider who attended an event in Europe. He was based in Spain and flew to where he was needed. Daniel and his family moved back to the US and he began teaching his Sport Psychology and Confidence Building clinics. He has worked with non- Riding Olympic athletes in both these areas.

He was an invited clinician at the Midwest Horse Fair in 2013 and 2104. OHA hosted clinics with him in May 2013 at Megan McIsaac's Lindenhof Dressage Zentrum, and in June 2014 at The Horse First Farm. WDCTA-SW chapter is happy to be hosting his return to the area with a new Sport Psychology Lecture, Rider Fitness and Confidence Building Clinic. He has his new book, "Pressure Proof your Ride," and a 2 DVD set on Rider Fitness available for purchase at discounted prices during the clinic.
