Equestrian Sport faces logistical challenges bringing horse , rider and coach together. Often coaches like myself travel to the horse & rider or the nearest venue to the rider with suitable surfaces to ride on. I enjoy these one to one sessions though I feel riders sometimes become isolated and so I try to arrange group sessions / camps / workshops to offer peer support and a network. Any other coaches have an experience of creating an environment where individuals need to change their timetables and join in with others?
Do your camps etc help? I still imaging the logistics are difficult and potentially a barrier
Maybe a closed facebook group could help connect them...
I've run a couple one day clinics on different topics (e.g. Intro to TREC). I've run these as either mounted sessions or unmounted (which also helps with logistics). It's a good way of getting like-minded riders in the same place and great way of getting discussions going between riders. I've always included an unmounted theory session, even at events where riders have brought their horses to the event, because it's good to cover key rules and discipline specific horse care. Personally, I find this a useful way to coach as I can travel across counties and coach riders further afield that I wouldn't be able to coach on a more frequent basis.
