Upskilling focus of eventing coach days


Eventing coaches are being offered a day of skills analysis by British Eventing as part of its Regional Coaching Development Programme.

There are nine BE Training and Education regions each hosting coaching days as part of the Regional Coach Development Programme, entitled ‘What Makes a Good Coach Great’ funded by British Eventing and Sport England. Autumn dates run from late September and continue through the winter.

The courses are aimed at and open to all coaches who are already working in the eventing industry, including Pony Club and Riding Club Coaches who wish to develop their career in eventing coaching.

The days will focus on discussion, reflection and theory in a classroom-based environment, followed in the afternoon by practical coaching sessions where all those attending will be involved in coaching, observing and feeding back. Candidates will be able to find out more about the Eventing Specific UKCC Level 3 and the criteria required to become a BE Accredited Coach.

Long term, the aim of the Regional Coach Development Programme will be a regional, self-financing group that will work together in areas that specifically interest the group to help develop individuals coaching skills, qualifications, and personal CPD including observing well known trainers in their work, working in other sports and looking at language and psychology.

Yogi Breisner, World Class Performance Manager and Chef d’Equipe to the British Eventing team said of the days: “Being an all-round sport, participants need all-compassing training which covers not just horse and rider but coaches too; through enhancing the skills given to coaches at every level we can ensure we are providing riders with the necessary tools to enjoy competitive but skilled eventing.”
