A coach for horse riding is someone who is able to:
- advise riders on how to improve their riding or
- manage their riding amongst other life events
This may involve fixing an issue with their timing whilst carrying out a task, their riding position or even how they go about asking a horse to carry out a movement. In the manner of managing riding, it may involve setting goals – long and short term, and taking steps to work towards these goals.
When it comes to instructing horse riding, often a qualification is needed and most definitely, a working knowledge of horse riding and how horses respond to riding aids!
