“It's like the angels sing and all once you reach it [Flow]” : A qualitative study of equestrian riders experience of Flow (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande studie var att undersöka hur ryttare upplever Flow, och vidare även hur ryttare upplever samspelet inom ekipaget vid Flow. Studien inkluderade 10 kvinnliga informanter (M = 18.7, SD = 1.48) med tävlingserfarenhet som sträcker sig från ingen alls till internationell nivå (Hoppning= 4, Dressyr = 3, Fälttävlan = 2, Ingen tävling = 1). En semi-strukturerad intervjuguide utvecklades utifrån Csikszentmihalyi's holistiska perspektiv på de nio dimensionerna av Flow (Jackson & Csikszentmihalyi, 1999), och data analyserades kvalitativt genom en innehållsanalys. Resultatet visade både att ryttares upplevelse av Flow stämmer väl överens med andra idrottsutövares upplevelse (Swann, Keegan, Piggott och Crust, 2012), och bekräftar tidigare tolkningar av att ridsporten skiljer sig från de flesta andra idrotter genom att utfallet till stor del är beroende av interaktionen och samarbetet mellan häst och ryttare (Beauchamp & Whinton, 2005). Vidare visar resultatet även att samspelet mellan häst och ryttare är en viktig och oersättlig del i upplevelsen av Flow.

Abstract [en]

Theaim of this study was to investigate how riders perceive Flow, and how ridersperceive the interactions with the horse during Flow. The study included 10female respondents (M = 18.7, SD = 1.48) with competition experience rangingfrom none at all to international level (Jumping = 4, Dressage = 3, Eventing =2, No competition = 1). A semi-structured interview guide was developed basedon Csikszentmihalyi's holistic perspective on the nine dimensions of Flow(Jackson & Csikszentmihalyi, 1999), and data were analyzed throughqualitative content analysis. The results showed both that the riders'experience of Flow correspond well with other athletes experience (Swann etal., 2012) and confirms earlier interpretations of that riding is differentfrom most other sports though the outcome largely depends on the interactionand collaboration between horse and rider (Beauchamp and Whinton, 2005).Furthermore, the results also show that the interaction between horse and rideris an important and irreplaceable part in the experience of Flow.
