Tip No 1 of 7. Decluttering

How many of you are guilty of having your tack room in a mess.

What about your stable? Is it as clean as it could be?


How many of you are guilty of not having the feed room tidied and presentable with stuff all over the place.

When it comes to your own riding gear you don’t have a proper system in place, with items and gear not organised.

So tip No 1 is all about decluttering.

When approaching this issue it is nearly always the tack room that is most unorganised for most riders

Why does this matter?

A clean space is a clean mind

A decluttered space is a decluttered mind

All of this organisation is to help you stay focused on what is important and not be distracted by mess.

Also do this in relation to your wardrobe and riding gear.

Decide what is working and what is not working

Declutter your show jumping life it and get systems in place!

A great small first step to help you on a path of ultimate focus
