How mental health affects People (in eventing)

You don't need to

"toughen up"

Event riders, grooms & supporters struggle with mental health.


Riders can be especially vulnerable to mental health problems because of the demanding lifestyle, high amounts of pressure, and feelings of not being good enough in what can be a "losing sport".

Over 98% of grooms in the 'Grooms Minds Study' said that the equestrian industry is not doing enough to support their mental health and wellbeing.

Clearly there is need for urgent change within the industry.
