Coaching & Coach Development

Equestrian is one of the priority sports working with sportscoachUK to develop and embed the UK Coaching Framework and has received significant support to develop and implement the UK Coaching Certificate (UKCC) across all the equestrian disciplines.

"Coaching is unlocking a person's potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them. Coaching gives an emphasis to the way the techniques are taught and the skills are communicated."  - Michael Johnson, athlete

"At all levels of society, coaches guide improvement in technical, tactical, physical, mental and lifestyle skills, contributing to personal and social development" - sportscoachUK

Coaching in the BEF

Our Member Bodies have a designated Coaching Development Officer who together form the Coaching Action Development Team (CDAT) which meets monthly.

CDAT is the National Source Group for Equestrian Coaching and is supported by sportscoachUK.

The term coaching refers to teaching, instructing, training and all methods of helping a rider or horse/rider partnership to improve. Coaching means 'coaching of rider' or 'coaching of horse/rider partnership'. The promotion of quality coaching is the privilege and responsibility of all organisations involved in our sport/industry.

Our Coaching Framework and UKCC courses are built on the principles of Long Term Participant Development, for more information on Long Term Participant Development please click here
