2013 Global Dressage Forum

Since 2012 young Belgian sport psychologist Jan Dierens started working with the Belgian dressage teams. Dierens has been invited as a speaker at the 2013 Global Dressage Forum, which is set to take place at Bartels' Academy in Hooge Mierde, The Netherlands, on 28 - 29 October 2013.

Dierens will prove to the delegates for the 2013 Global Dressage Forum that imagery is stronger than will power. Furthermore he believes it can lead to a physical reaction. Athletes must learn how to use all aspects of their mental skill for improving technique, preparing for a test, etc.

The Herselt based Dierens is a believer in GAME, Goal Achievement through Mental Education/Enchancement/Excellence.

Jan Dierens intends to present mental training in a practical and dynamic manner.
