Training / Area Coaching Courses

As from 1st January 1998, every Pony Club Instructor is required to attend at least one Instructors Course (CPD) where a mounted demonstration ride is provided, 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
  • NEW! 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
  • NEW! Coach Support Days - An alternative CPD refresher method which has been successfully piloted in Area 9.  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.  The trials in Area 9 have been extremely well received, despite a few coaches being nervous about it to begin with. Coach Support CPD Format
  • General Coach CPD update courses - It was requested that the Training Committee suggest annual themes for coach CPD.  The suggested theme for 2015 is Rider Balance, and a recommended format is available on the website, along with delivery notes for course tutors.  Balance CPD format  Balance CPD Tutor Notes

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 Booking Form (PDF Format  CPD Booking Form (Microsoft Word format) CPD Sign In Sheet Template (PDF format)  CPD Sign In Sheet Template (Microsoft Word Format)
