Explaining how modern coaching techniques can be applied to equestrian sport, the books is more about the skills of coaching than how to teach the actual skills of riding.

With chapters on 'You' as a coach, Communication, Awareness and judgement, Aims, Coaching children and more, you'll focus on topics that will help you enhance your teaching skills, especially those who are newly qualified or still studying for their teaching certificate. Excellent background reading for those seeking to achieve the UK Coaching Certificate in Equestrian Sport.

THE AUTHOR
 
Islay Auty holds a professional career as an equestrian sports coach that spans three decades. Having gained her BHS Instructor's certificate in the early 1970s, became a chief examiner for the BHS and also successfully produced and competes horses in show jumping, eventing and, more recently, in dressage to advanced level. On achieving the BHS Fellowship and an honours degree in education in the early 1990s, Islay became a freelance coach who is now in much demand, both at home and abroad, for her skills in training other coaches along with her inspirational work with many individual dressage and event riders.

She is passionate about the development of good horsemanship in young people and has since become involved in the British Young Riders Dressage Scheme (BYRDS) and a chef d'équipe to the British Dressage Under-21 teams.
