Why host a workshop?

Many athletes are at risk of underfueling. Whether that underfueling is unintentional or a result of an eating disorder/disordered eating, it puts equestrians at risk of several health and performance consequences ranging from decreased endurance, strength, and concentration to compromised immunity & increased injury risk - none of which set you up for success in or out of the saddle.

 

With the increasing amount of nutrition information and misinformation out there, it makes it challenging to know what to believe, which is why I created this workshop.

 

The goal is to provide reliable, practical, evidence-based nutrition information from someone who not only studied and has been practicing nutrition for >10 years, but who also grew up in the sport and currently lives the equestrian lifestyle.

 

Because of this, I understand the challenges and barriers that can impact proper fueling and nourishment and understand how to combine the science with real life, practical nutrition strategies.

Here are the key takeaways you can expect to get from this workshop:

01

Improved nutritional knowledge

Attendees will gain an understanding of the role various nutrients play in supporting overall health, wellness, and athletic performance.

They will learn to identify the top nutrition myths in the nutrition space, which will ultimately help empower them to feel confident in making food choices that allow them to feel their best.

03

Injury prevention

This is an extreme sport. Working with horses requires us to be 'on' and present at all times. Whether working with these powerful 1200 lb animals in hand or under saddle, they have a mind, body, and spirit of their own.

 

Underfueling reduces endurance, strength, coordination, and concentration - all of which can make it difficult to be present and able to handle unexpected situations that may arise. 

Adequate fueling and nourishment will help you stay present and proactive, reducing the potential risk of injury.

02

Enhanced performance

Understanding what to eat before, during, and after rides can help enhance energy levels in the saddle and promote recovery after tough rides or other physical activity.

 

Attendees will learn how to build and apply 'performance plates' to make sure they give their bodies the energy and nutrients needed to support overall health & performance.

04

A more positive outlook on their relationship with food

Research has shown that 35-42% of equestrians are at risk of having an eating disorder. That's almost every 1 in 2 riders. 

Many riders feel they need to look a certain way in order to be successful in the sport or best support their equine partner. This belief can lead to dieting, underfueling, a negative body image, and stress around food - all of which makes it difficult to properly fuel & nourish the body. 

Attendees will get tools to help create and foster a healthy relationship with food & their bodies.
