“Wow! Totally brilliant and I took loads away from it.”
“I enjoyed it so much I am planning on attending another one before you finish, and hopefully bring along some friends!!”
“It really was a fantastic evening!”
“I came to Dublin last night to hear your talk and I wanted to say it was 100% worth it. Your content and delivery was first class and our whole group came away with more knowledge and inspiration.”
“Very thought-provoking.”
“Charlie says all the things as a parent that you want to say, but just can't find the right words or right time to say them.”
“My daughter was totally inspired by your talk and has been avidly developing her training notes since she listened to you.”

“I CAN THOROUGHLY RECOMMEND Charlie’s talk. Excellent content delivered in a lively upbeat manner very engaging for all ages and not just equestrians.”
“Many of the skills talked about will be useful for life, school, sitting exams and of course riding. I'm a keen golfer and found the presentation really informative about training, preparation and rhythm.”
“Definitely worth the money. Lots of easy nuggets so easy to apply. Making plans right now!”
“Worth every penny and more.”


Last time over 1,500 riders attended Charlie’s winter talks and most venues sold out well in advance, so get ahead of the game and book early…

Charlie Unwin has built a reputation for his specialist experience in helping equestrians accelerate their potential, perform consistently in competition and thrive under pressure.

“For me, performance psychology is about helping athletes perform consistently at their best under the pressure of competition. This typically requires us to have belief in our potential, create and execute a clear game plan and focus effectively on the things that count under pressure.


In addition to this we must remember that individuals perform largely as a function of their environment making it important to work closely with coaches, performance staff, parents and governing bodies”

I have found Charlie's talks really help me get into the right frame of mind. Last year he helped my season jump into gear with at least a win per week for the first couple of months. I also find it interesting to understand more about the way my mind and character works in competition.

Winning the Mind Game in Training

Charlie has a lovely, easy manner. Keeping things simple, he provides a fascinating and logical image to pursue using his “Bubble Analysis” to structure it in our minds. As a coach as well as a rider I found it absorbingly interesting.”
