Without the Horses, There is Nothing!

April 2018

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.

So you want to be a course designer?

August 2012

In order to course design you need to achieve your qualifications with either EA or PCAQ. This will give you the necessary insurance cover required and also offer you invaluable information and support.   For a level 1 accreditation with Equestrian Australia (EA) you first need to be a member of the state branch such as EQ or ENSW etc. For the purpose of this article I will refer to Equestrian Queensland (EQ) as it is my home ground. Both the EQ and EA websites are great sources of information, and a good first port of call.

Training your horse to jump 'scary' jumps

August 2012

Taking your jumper to a horseshow usually means getting the horse exposed to many different colourful and potential fear eliciting stimuli (otherwise known as ‘spooky jumps’!). Some horses are more fearful of such ‘scary’ objects and jumps than others and I often meet riders that have problems with their horses refusing to jump the colourful ‘scary’ jumps.
