Coaching / Coaching CPD Courses

As from 1st January 1998, every Pony Club Coach is required to attend at least one Coaching Course (CPD)  every two years. This may be at Branch, Area, Regional or National Level.

The Policy of the Pony Club Council is to help provide courses of instruction at all stages for everyone who helps to teach in the Branches and Centres. This policy is implemented through the Training Committee which is responsible for the variety of courses available for CPD.  We have received feedback from some coaches that they are not always sure which course they should do, so some existing courses have been renamed, to try and make the choices clearer.  There are also some new CPD opportunities which may be of interest to your Branch or Centre:

  • Introduction to Coaching – Step 1 – Ideal for new and young coaches
  • Introduction to Coaching – Step 2 – Follow on from Step 1, and a refresher for more experienced coaches
  • Introduction to Coaching Cross Country – Step 3 – Ideal for coaches who actively coach jumping and want to start coaching cross country, or as a refresher for other coaches already coaching cross country

  • Coach Support Days - An alternative CPD refresher method.  For these days, a coach supporter/mentor attends a day rally, or day at camp and spends some time observing each coach and then discussing, in a supportive way, their coaching, and ways to develop and or improve themselves as a coach.Coach Support CPD Format
  • The 2016 CPD theme set by the Training Committee was Suppleness. Please find below Information for Organisers, and Notes for Course Educators: Information for Course Organisers Format & Notes for Course Tutors
    Many courses are organised on an Area basis by Area Representatives and Branches / Centres, but anyone looking for a suitable course should be made welcome in a neighbouring area. If your Branch or Centre organises a CPD course, please let The Pony Club Office know by filling out the CPD Booking Form. Please also ask attendees to sign in to the course and return the completed sign in sheet to The Pony Club office so this can be cross referenced against the Instructors Database.

    CPD Process


    The following are arrangements to be followed for the provision of CPD (continuing professional development) events:

    *      CPD events can be run by an Area, Branch, Centre or centrally from the Pony Club office (e.g. coach conference)

    *      All events being organised should be approved by the Area Representative before being notified to the Pony Club office
    *      The Area Representative is responsible for the selection of an appropriately trained and experienced coach to present the CPD course

    *      All CPD must be listed on the main Pony Club website in order to count for accreditation purposes.

    *      The bookings should all be made via the organiser (so if organised by a Branch via their nominated representative), only in exceptional circumstances will the office take bookings for CPD not organised centrally

    *      The sign-in sheet should be sent to the Pony Club office so that the coach record can be updated (a copy may be kept locally/sent to Area Representative)
