Without the Horses, There is Nothing!

April 2018 by Jen Marsden Hamilton, NCCP (Canada) Level IV Jumper

Through the past few decades, my main involvement in the equestrian sport has been through teaching. Many use the term ‘coaching’ nowadays, but I think that defines what we do too narrowly. 

In my own development as a teacher, I have attended, and greatly benefited from, the National Canadian Coaching Program and the seminars it provided. I have learned more about the specifics of our sport, the ethics required, strategies from other sports that can be applied to the equestrian sport, the latest teaching theories, and I have grown as a person and as a teacher.
