Time: 7:30 pm

Coaching Mindset and Dealing with Success and Failure- Online Zoom training on the 28th May 7:30pm


A former Army officer and GB athlete Charlie believes that, in order to excel, riders must consider themselves as athletes. His work revolves around constructing a robust psychological framework for riders, enabling them to maintain composure, confidence and focus whilst managing the day-to-day demands of the sport.  Charlie helps riders to pursue a relentless consistency in their approach to training and competition.

With a keen interest in psycho-physiology, Charlie’s techniques include focus enhancement, stress management, and visualization practices, all designed to fortify the rider’s inner game and transform potential into real world success.

In 2017 Charlie co-founded Centre10, designed to train and support equestrian coaches in applying the principles of good psychology into their coaching – helping them to elevate their own riders’ performance. Over 200 coaches have now completed the Centre10 Advanced Programme, with new cohorts starting every October.

“Working with Charlie I recognised how many factors influence our mental state as riders. Taking control of my own performance, not just the horse’s, played a big part in improving my results.”
