HORSE Sport Ireland (HSI) will hold an Introduction to Coaching course on Friday 30th January 2015 at Gurteen College, Roscrea, Co. Tipperary.

The Horse Sport Ireland Coaching Programme is designed to provide candidates with a pathway to a career as a successful competition coach. HSI Coaching courses are delivered by professional equestrian tutors and use modern techniques to improve both horses’ and riders’ performance. Coaching courses are currently delivered across four levels and are accredited by Coaching Ireland; the Irish governing body for coaching in all sports.

The HSI Introduction to Coaching course is the initial step on the coaching ladder. It provides parents, coaches and young horse producers with the basic skills and techniques to coach at training level. The course provides you with the basic principles of coaching, better understanding of modern competition requirements, and a detailed understanding of the HSI Coaching Programme and of the work involved to become a qualified equestrian coach.

 Entry Requirements: Candidates should be over 16 years of age and have a general knowledge of horses and horsemanship. Previous equestrian experience does help develop your eye as a coach.

 Duration: This course is a one day course and is very practical in its presentation. The theory sessions are completed in groups and most of the time is spent in the arena watching and participating in practical coaching sessions.

Cost: €80

Certification: A certificate of attendance will be awarded to those who attend the course. Participants who complete this course will be eligible to go forward to attend the HSI Level 1 Apprentice Coach course.
