Training / Visiting Coaches

As of February 2012, all Visiting Coaches are listed in three categories:

Pony Club Specialist Coaches

  • Coach at all levels / disciplines within The Pony Club.
  • Can deliver standard setting days for assessors and instructors.
  • Can deliver standardised or bespoke Pony Club coaching and/or UKCC courses.
  • Travel expenses will be paid by The Pony Club office.

Discipline specific Coaches

  • Will coach the discipline that they specialise in (Dressage, Eventing etc.)
  • Travel expenses will be paid by The Pony Club office.

Recommended Coaches

  • Will teach/coach at rallies and camps basing their content on The Pony Club training principles.
  • Will be listed by Pony Club Area.
  • Travel expenses up to £50 per visit will be paid by The Pony Club office per eligible visit.
    (Coaches marked with an asterisk (*) are those prepared to coach at summer camps of 4 days or more at a time.  In these cases, the full travel expenses will be paid)

The Pony Club office will pay the travel expenses of Visiting Coaches for one return journey to any Branch or Centre in any one holiday period (one holiday period encompasses one school half term and the following school holiday).  Visiting Coaches claim their travel expenses direct from The Pony Club office on the official Expenses Claim form.  Branches and Centres are advised to negotiate terms with the coaches they wish to use in advance.

Download a list of those who hold their Coaching Certificate

The Pony Club Coaching Certificate’s objective is to give candidates a sound base of coaching knowledge, to enable them to teach a group of riders up to C standard and a group of C+ standard for horse care. The coaches listed above have all passed this qualification. Further information about the Coacing Certificate can be found here.

It has not been checked whether these coaches fulfil the requirements for instructors. Each Branch or Centre that uses them must check the disclosure certificate, first aid certificate, and safeguarding qualifications on the Instructor Database before they use the coach. More details on Coach/Instructor Requirements can be found here.
