Model Number: 9781905693085
Accomplished coach Islay Auty explains how to develop your teaching technique to bring out the best in your pupils, be they top-flight competitors or recreational riders. The text explains how modern coaching techniques can be applied to equestrian sport, and as such the book is more about the skills of coaching than how to teach the actual skills of riding. It focuses on topics such as motivation, inspiring confidence, personal development, communication, awareness and judgement, psychology, and how people learn. The author examines the particular issues involved in teaching children, pleasure riders, and competitors at all levels – and brings her text to life with thought-provoking scenarios.
Deals with modern coaching techniques and how they can be applied to the equestrian environment.
Written for riding teachers who wish to enhance their teaching skills, especially those who are newly qualified or still studying for their teaching certificate.
Excellent background reading for those seeking to achieve the UK Coaching Certificate in Equestrian Sport.
