Wellington, FL - Wellington equestrians are in for a major treat with ShowChic’s February Shop Talk. The Shop Talk, scheduled for Monday, February 23, will play host to a sneak peak at the upcoming Emotional Fitness Super Clinic that will be led by Linda Parelli of Parelli Natural Horsemanship and Dr. Jenny Susser, clinical sport psychologist, later this month in California. While the full-scale super clinic will feature two and a half days of instruction designed to help riders and horses develop emotional fitness, Wellington is fortunate to play host to an abbreviated version of the clinic through ShowChic’s much-loved Shop Talk series. During the day on Monday, February 23, Linda and Dr. Jenny will be giving a private invitational clinic at Jessica Jo Tate’s facility, Yellowbird Farm in Wellington, Florida. The evening will bring a Shop Talk discussion starting at 6:30 p.m. at ShowChic’s Wellington boutique, in which Linda and Dr. Jenny will present the importance of emotional fitness and how horse and rider pairs can learn to overcome anxiety to achieve their goals.
Linda is someone who truly understands the inner workings of a horse. A nationally acclaimed horsemanship expert, she is adored for her ability to connect with horses and help them overcome their natural instincts of being fearful and prone to panic.
Dr. Jenny is a Sport Psychologist, with a doctoral degree in Clinical Health Psychology. She is a Certified Consultant with the Association for Applied Sport Psychology and is on the U.S. Olympic Registry. With her personal experience as a four-year All American Swimmer and as an assistant coach at UCLA (who swam on two national teams and at the 1988 Olympic Trials), she understands the trials that athletes go through. Her devotion to the athlete has led her to work with equestrians as the USET Team Sport Psychologist with the 2012 Olympic Dressage Team and as the Team Psychologist for the South American Para Dressage Team in 2010.
Now, Dr. Jenny and Linda are joining forces to empower both horses and humans to find the emotional fitness they need to make every ride a good one.
Together, the duo is sure to leave the audience feeling more confident. “I want people to know that it doesn’t take talent, it doesn’t take bravery, and it doesn’t take years to get there,” said Linda. “It takes heart, desire, and access to a phenomenal teacher who’s willing to share everything in a way that is simple to understand.”
ShowChic is excited to host the two professionals, especially as this visit to Wellington will mark the first emotional fitness clinic by Linda and Dr. Jenny in the United States. A major supporter of dressage and continued education, ShowChic has packed the winter season with an impressive lineup of Shop Talk speakers, and will continue to do so throughout the upcoming months.
It’s clear to anyone who has attended the Shop Talks that the dressage community is thankful for ShowChic’s efforts. The Shop Talks have been packed this season with riders enjoying the opportunity to learn from the best, while socializing with other dressage enthusiasts and checking out the latest in fashion trends at ShowChic’s mobile boutique.
ShowChic hopes that the dressage community will come out in full force once more to take advantage of this amazing opportunity to learn from Linda’s and Dr. Jenny’s combined experience.
ShowChic also invites dressage riders to find the best in equestrian fashion and necessities at its Wellington store and its mobile boutique at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival.
