New Equestrian Book, The Power To Win, Now Available

Phelps Media Group

Wellington, FL- December 8, 2004- Sports hypnotist and equestrian Laura Boynton King’s new book, The Power to Win: Achieving Peak Performance with Hypnosis and NLP, has been recently published and is available to the public at local bookstores and online at

In The Power to Win (The Lyons Press, December 2004), Laura Boynton King uses self-hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), and Time Line Therapy® to teach the reader/rider how to stop dwelling on past failures and other negative feelings and images through stress-reduction techniques, positive imagery, and concentration-focusing skills.

Whether the rider feels held back by physical fear (for example, riding a livelier horse or jumping a higher fence than he or she is accustomed to), negative comments from a trainer or a horse show judge, or show-ring performance anxiety, this book is designed to help replace a “losing” mentality with the winning edge.

Full of valuable advice and illustrated with examples of how the author has helped well-known equestrians, The Power to Win is a valuable tool for all competitive or recreational riders, athletes at any level, instructors, and parents.

Laura Boynton King is a certified hypnotist and a founder and president of Summit Dynamics, LLC, a consulting service dedicated to helping people attain their goals through Hypnosis, NLP, and Self-Hypnosis. An enthusiastic and accomplished equestrian, she lives in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.

Many equestrians have used King’s techniques, and have contributed their thoughts about the book:

"Laura helps you understand what’s going on in your mind when you’re performing well and when you aren’t so you can actually reprogram yourself to perform the way you want to. It’s amazing!” – Margie Goldstein-Engle, Olympic show-jumper and eight-time American Grandprix Association Rider of the Year

“A simple, yet compelling read. I immediately noticed a difference in the way I approach my riding-and my life! I never knew I had so much power!”- Caren Hunter, sponsor relations for Stadium Jumping, Inc.

“A must-read for anyone who is ready for self-examination and lasting improvement. The Power to Win gives you an edge that goes way beyond the show ring.”- Mason Phelps, Jr., former United States Equestrian Team three-day eventer

Author Laura Boynton King states about her book, “There are a lot of people- not just athletes or equestrians- who are struggling to find balance, fulfillment and happiness in their lives. They can use the tools in The Power to Win to achieve happiness in everyday life. Anyone can learn to use relaxation techniques and visualization to make positive change in their life.”
