Dennis Moreland’s First Tradeshow

DennisMoreland TJGoodDennis Moreland (left) and T.J. GoodIn 1976 I had my first Dennis Moreland Tack exhibit at the NCHA Futurity. There was only one other vendor in ’76, T&S Signs owned by Tom and Sue Reardon. They made the magnetic plaques to stick on your truck and horse trailer. They had been there the year before in ’75 but with the both of us there in ’76 we started the NCHA tradeshows.

Dealing With Disappointment

By Anna Mitchell

Disappointments come in all shapes and sizes in the world of competitive sports. Sometimes the disappointment is minor and we can shake it off and go on. Other times the disappointment can be crippling, making it very difficult for us to put it behind us and move on. Understanding why we feel so disappointed at times and learning how to deal with that disappointment is a crucial skill for competitive athletes to learn if they hope to have a successful and fulfilling career in sports.

Tips From the Top

By Anna Mitchell

I am a firm believer in learning from other people's mistakes and achievements as much as my own. Let’s take a look at what is working for those that have made it to the top and see if we can't borrow an idea of two that might work for us as well.

Here are some tips from top athletes:

Anger Management

By Anna Mitchell

I had a great question from a reader about my earlier article, “The Monster Within.”  How can I control my anger? Not many of us are born with the skills to handle intense emotions and unfortunately sometimes our environments do not facilitate the kind of healthy learning that we would like.

Mind-Set for Success

Anna Mitchell
I talk a lot about getting in “the zone” to achieve your peak performance. About finding that sweet spot for your mind-set that gives you the freedom to just perform without all the cognitive noise of thinking your way through a performance. Otherwise referred to as "flow," this experience of automaticity is crucial for peak performance because thinking interrupts the natural timing of the sequence of events that creates a great performance.

Stress and Our Health

By Anna Mitchell

The average age of equine sport participants is generally higher than other sports that require more extensive physical exertion and athleticism. When combined with the notion that many of these competitors are also involved in a demanding and competitive work environment, then health issues become a very real concern.

Team Work

By Anna Mitchell

Few athletes can say they reached the top on their own. Even "individual" sports usually require a team to get the job done. After all, it takes an army to win a war. Problems with your team can add a lot of stress and distractions, making it difficult to focus on your performance.

Slave to the Habit

By Anna Mitchell

Change is an inevitable phenomenon that you cannot control. But you can often control the direction of the change by the decisions that you make. Life is about choices, but "habits" often rob us of these choices by becoming an involuntary response rather than a conscious decision.
