Equitation and Coaching - (15 credits)

The coaching element concentrates on students being able to apply coaching theory in a practical situation whereby they design, plan, implement and reflect on riding lessons on the flat and over fences. Coaching skills also develop communication, confidence, and students own equestrian skills. This module is aligned to the UKCC level 2 in equestrian coaching and will be useful for students who are interested in being a generic equestrian coach and those who want to specialise in any of the other riding disciplines. The equitation element will improve student's practical ability and understanding of the principles of equitation theory.
