Finally got round to listening to this episode.

There is so much that is similar to equestrian sports. In fact, I’m currently curious about whether racing (formula one- motorcycle) is the closest sport to equestrian.
Maybe slalom canoe, mountain biking, slalom ski, are similar too. My brain is buzzing….

Worth a listen for sure.

In my opinion, this should be compulsorily listening for all coaches. Jennifer Fraser is incredible and has been a huge influence and drive in helping progress the understanding of the effects of bullying, not just from other children or work colleagues, but often parents and family.

Her work has helped me so much personally as well as professionally.

It is a wonderful listen. Jennifer’s book is a wonderful read.
