The training we receive as riding coaches has developed my observation, analytical and communication skills. I can spot a student’s riding problems accurately and not only get him to understand what he needs to do, but to reliably do it. This puts a smile on everyone’s face.
It’s transformed my personal riding too. Being able to make the distinctions necessary to spot student riding errors make it possible for me to see my own, where I didn’t before. The drills we work on at the school still make a difference in my riding each time I apply them.
