What will I learn?

Your ‘Horse Riding Instructor’ course outline includes horse care and teaching areas with optional riding. It is an ideal course for some-one who already has knowledge of horses but for a variety of reasons is unable to continue riding. This course focuses on teaching the beginner and novice rider the foundations of riding and is ideal if you are teaching children to ride horses.

You should already be knowledgable with horses before you commence this course, either working in a professional capacity, extensive knowledge gained through owning your own horses or previous equine qualifications.

The subjects included in this course are listed below:

Identify, Handling, Facilities and Basic Travel
These first four areas of study with horses should confirm that you have enrolled in the correct course. You should be able to complete the requirements easily, but if you have difficulty please speak to us about changing your enrolment into another one of our online horse courses.

Grooming and Equipment, Riding Preparation, Aids and Gaits and Basic Riding
This is another area that you should find fairly straightforward and is introduced early in the course. If you find these first four areas difficult, we recommend that you discuss changing your course with us. It may be that you use a different pathway to become a horse riding coach.  If there is a reason why you cannot complete the horse riding section of this course, it is possible to gain your ‘Horse Riding Instructor’ qualification without completing the horse riding section.

horse-riding-instructor1Stable Practices
As we expect you to complete this course and go into a professional riding establishment, this subject is essential to set a professional standard. In your position as a riding instructor, you may be required to supervise others while they perform their stable duties such as feeding, cleaning stables and maintaining saddlery.

Horse Husbandry
In your horse riding coach course, we continue your role as the supervisor and confirm that you are able to recognize the correct horse husbandry practices in a stable of horses, as well as extras like tips on pulling manes and tails, trimming and preventing rubs so you present the horses you care for to look their best.

Illness and Injury
As part of your equine instructor qualification you learn that hoof injuries, allergic reactions, wounds and other signs of ill- health are included in the area of illness and injury. Causes, symptoms and treatment are taught so when you are in charge of a large stable, you can help prevent many common illnesses and injuries that are so common in the horse industry.

Basic First Aid
You will learn what to do if a horse become ‘cast’ in his stable. You will also learn not only how to deal with that situation, and how to help prevent other life threatening ailments. We teach you what a well equipped first aid kit will contain, the application of first aid bandages and infectious diseases.

Work Routines
Determining work objectives prior to managing and monitoring the tasks of yourself and your staff are essential in a well run stable and you will learn about this in this unit. the factors which affect work, giving and receiving performance feedback and job roles are also taught.

Work Performance
How well you perform in the workplace will attribute to your efficiency as an employee. Being efficient means you will be able to complete tasks and routines quickly, but you will also need to be able to communicate and work well with other colleagues, clients and horses.

Assessing Horse Health
As a horse person working in the industry it important you become accustomed to continually assessing the health and well being of horses. We teach you techniques for developing an ‘eye’ to quickly make decisions for what a healthy horse looks like and what tasks they are able to perform.

Horse First Aid
We teach you about the two types of first aid for horses 1) treating an injury which doesn’t require medical attention (e.g. minor cuts, scrapes and scratches) and 2) providing temporary measures (e.g. minimising blood loss) until the vet arrives. Also how to maintain your horse first aid kit, keeping it well stocked and in a convenient location.

Basic Reproduction
While we won’t be specializing in preparing you to manage a large stud, this area introduces you to the reproductive system, dealing with parts of the female and male systems, gestation and signs of foaling so you have a basic knowledge of the breeding of horses.

Physiology 1
This first physiology area takes a general look at the functions and essential components of the nervous, musculo-skeletal and endocrine systems. We divide these systems into the parts, with further explanations of each part.

Physiology 2
This second physiology area introduces the concept of the body systems of the horse and focuses on the respiratory, circulatory and digestive systems of the horse. The parts and functions of these body systems are taught with many color diagrams and clear, well worded explanations to assist the learner in this area.

You will learn about the general desirability’s of any breed or type, and the reasons they may be undesirable. We look at the standards and desirability’s between different breeds, and how a horse with unsuitable confirmation for one riding discipline may excel at another type of riding.

NOTE: A non-riding option is now available for your riding instructor qualifications. The subjects listed below are for recommended for competitive dressage and jumping riders. But if you prefer a less classical approach to your horse riding units then please talk to us about your options.

Your Horse Riding* areas are:

Upright Seat
As you will be teaching your students on how to sit in the saddle and hold the reins, it is essential that you are able to demonstrate an independent, balanced and effective way of riding. You learn about maintaining this position during transitions within and between the paces in walk, trot and canter.

Using Aids
You learn about the natural and artificial aids, including the types of forward aids, lateral (sideways) aids and regulating aids. We give you tips on how to develop your ‘feel’ and riding ‘half-halts’ so you can ride different types of horses and train them individually, according to their ability to progress.

Track and Figures
In this area we teach you the two different sizes of arenas, letters and dimensions as well as tips for learning them. Tips for correctly riding the correct sizes and shapes of common tracks and figures in the dressage arenas are given as well as the reasons for riding them.

Training Scale
We introduce you to a program of physical education or gymnastic process to develop your horse’s natural physical and mental aptitudes thus producing a horse which is a pleasure to ride. You will learn why it is important to develop the horses natural rhythm and then how to encourage their suppleness/ looseness as they get ready for the next step.

You will learn how to obtain contact, what is a good contact and ways horses avoid the contact as well as common faults. We teach you how to make sure your horse is loose and supple and can be ridden forward into the contact, so there is less resistance, irregularity or tension.

No matter what discipline or recreation you choose to pursue with your horse it will probably require some sort of training. Even going for a pleasure horseback ride and the weekend trail riding horse can benefit from some basic flatwork or dressage training to assist in the communication between horse and rider.

There are many terms you will hear being used within horse riding and there are just as many ways to describe what is going on with the horse and rider. The meaning of some can be quite quizzical while others can be more obvious. We give you simple easily understood explanations of this terminology.

*Horse Riding is an extra elective in this course and will incur an additional cost. The horse riding theory component has no additional cost

The main part of learning how to become a horse riding instructor is the coaching. Our Equestrian Teaching areas are:

horse-riding-instructor2Coach Practices
This area supports your ‘Beginner Coaching’ course, but specializes in the area of teaching and coaching horse riding including teaching children/ kids. This is an essential part of becoming a horse riding coach/instructor and is included in all of our horse riding instructor courses. As a riding instructor/ equestrian coach, you may be required to be a motivator, planner and advisor to your students and in this area you will learn how to combine these roles in accordance with your ‘Code of Conduct’.

Coaching Special Groups
Riders may do so for many different reasons, because they want to improve fitness, develop new skill or for social contacts and riders with special needs are no different. As part of your riding instructor/ horse riding coach qualification, we teach you how to accept each participant as an individual and how to be an effective horse riding coach and adjust to accommodate for individuals (including kids), especially those with special needs.

Provide First Aid
The co-requisite St John’s First Aid course (or equivalent) is a co-requisite for this course and should be taken prior to this part of your course.
The horse industry will never be completely free from risk or hazards, as learn about how to become a horse riding instructor you will learn that it is possible to avoid or minimize these where ever possible. In your riding instructor qualifications course we teach you how to look at the potential risks around a horse environment and how to consider the level of risk for each potential hazard.

First Aid
We ask you to consider the basic aspects of dealing with a first aid scenario in the horse environment and how to teach horse riding lessons in a difficult situation. You will learn that as a riding instructor/ equestrian coach it will be part of your role to make decisions and prioritize actions in an event of an injured rider/ person in your control.

Supervise Horse Handling
You will learn what how to continually assess your student, consider their stage of learning and the type of supervision and training they require to minimize your legal liability. We teach you how to provide assistance and when to seek assistance, as well as the planning and preparation prior to teaching. how to teach kids to ride horses

Safe Riding
Safety is always an important element when you are riding, but especially important when you have the responsibility for others. When you are learning how to teach kids to ride horses, their parents want to be reassured that you are keeping their children safe. Any horse riding coach course should have safety underpinning all the training and assessment throughout the course. Maintaining safe practices when you ride and teach will minimize hazards and risks to yourself and others. Arena Rules may vary between different equine establishments, but it is important you understand the reasons they were created before you make any changes.

Risk With Horses
You will be given a scenario which may easily happen in an equine environment. You will be required to take control of the situation to eliminate hazards, control the risks and minimize the risk of further problems. You will learn the appropriate regulations and guidelines and the impact of risks.

Risk Analysis
As you progress through your career in the horse industry and increase the level of your horse riding instructor certification, you will usually be required to accept a higher degree of responsibility for risks and to contribute to ‘Risk Treatment Plans’. We teach you how to implement and improve the risk management within an equine environment, what are acceptable risks and how to define between internal and external sources of risk.

Lunging the Horse
Prior to lunging a rider on a horse and as part of the horse riding instructor training it is essential that you can lunge a horse safely and efficiently. You will learn how to recognize a safe lunging area, the required equipment for lunging, using a lunge rein, lunging the horse to prepare for the rider, especially when you are teaching young children. In this equine instructor course we teach you about the considerations for lunging and also considerations for teaching a rider on the lunge.

Mounting and Dismounting
While this exercise is a simple process to the experienced horse person teaching horse back riding lessons, it can be extremely difficult for the beginner rider, both physically and psychologically. It will be part of your role and responsibility as a riding instructor to ensure the safety of the horse, rider and you. When you teach horseback riding you will need a checklist with points to remember throughout this process and this is included in your riding instructor.

Lunging Exercises
While there are no specific ‘guaranteed’ exercises that will solve every problem, we teach you horse riding games (which are great when you are learning how to teach kids how to ride horses), activities and exercises that you can vary to suit every type of rider. So it won’t matter if you are teaching horse riding lessons to some one who is very confident or extremely nervous, you will have a wide range of progressive exercises to help your students in their horse riding lessons.

Teaching Walk
A nervous adult beginner will want to focus a lot more on walk before progressing onto trot than a more confident younger rider. As part of your horse riding instructor certification we teach you techniques to hold their interest and also some tricks for teaching the theory of the walk to younger, more active and more confident riders. If you know how to teach horseback riding lessons to beginners correctly to build confidence, you could become a very popular qualified horse riding instructor is a short period of time.

Teaching Trot
Most riders can learn to rise to the trot within minutes of sitting on a horse for the first time if they are taught the correct techniques. We show you how to teach the trot without riders’ balancing on the horse’s reins or giving their horse a sore back. You will learn how to teach horse riding with exercises to change easily between sitting trot to rising trot as well as jumping position in the trot.

Student Assessment
As you learn more about becoming a riding instructor, you will learn there are many non-verbal signs a rider will show an experienced equestrian coach that they are not ready to progress onto the next exercise. We give you a checklist of signs to check before you take you rider away from their comfort zone of you controlling their horse onto them riding and controlling their horse by themselves. As you know how to become a horse riding instructor, you will recognize the safety implications if this happens too soon.

Turning and Guiding
Sometimes beginner riders treat their horse like an insensitive vehicle, pulling on the reins for turning and stopping using strength instead of feeling and upsetting their horse in the process. Part of knowing how to teach horseback riding lessons, is having some simple exercises to teach the rider to turn and guide their horse using sensitivity and feeling and in your horse riding instructor course you will learn these exercises.

Trot Diagonals
As your students become more established in the rising trot and are able to maintain they rhythm of the trot, they are able to learn about riding on the correct diagonal. We teach you about the common problems riders have in recognizing the correct diagonal, and as part of your horse riding instructors qualifications we give you some easy tips to teach both correct diagonals and changing diagonals.

Circle Exercises
Riding a circle can be difficult for a beginner, but it is a reflection on the way a rider can control them in an open area. If the rider allows them to speed up on a circle, they may allow them to canter or even gallop in an open area. Similarly if they drift in and out, slow down or ignore the rider this is a larger problem in an open area. In your equine instructor course we teach you the signs that a rider is not really in control and how to fix them while they are still in a safe environment.

Corners and Half Arena
We teach you some more exercises to teach a beginner horse rider in a safe way during your horse riding instructor training. If they are always in control, they gain confidence and progress more quickly. This is another area where we give you tips for teaching horse riding exercises to the beginner and include transitions with a focus on maintaining control and building confidence while teaching the beginner horse rider.

Full Arena
As you move your rider onto a larger area, their horse is more likely to gather pace with the likelihood of the rider losing control and confidence. In this part of learning how to become a horse riding instructor we teach you how to recognize the behavior of horses and how they are affected by working in a larger area. In this part of your horse riding instructor certification you will learn how to bring them under control in a safe efficient way, without the rider losing confidence.

Summative Assessment
In this part of the horse riding instructor qualification course, we give you a topic to teach that may include a combination of the above areas. You will have a limited time to prepare and teach this lesson as you would if you were working as a professional, employed by a private rider or in a riding school, equestrian centre, pony club or other professional environment.

You will also be able to have regular phone tutorials during the course. In these you can ask us about any particular questions about your own horse, even if it has nothing to do with your course.

Although they will need to be confirmed with us, when you complete many of your online assessments, you will know the results immediately!

Are there any practical tasks within my course?

Of course! Horses are live animals and learning about horse behaviour, especially when they are ridden is an essential part of this course. To meet the practical coaching components of the course

A combination of practical skills and theoretical knowledge are the main requirements for this qualification and these skills will be developed throughout the course.

There are a few options to complete the practical requirements of this course, depending on your location, time available and other commitments.

There may be some components of your course that may be completed by RPL from prior qualifications, references or third party reports.

Our most popular option is for assessment of practical tasks to be done by video. There are instructions for the submission of video (usually through within your course content.

If you need further experience with horses before submitting your video, this could be done in your local area or with contacts you already have within the horse industry. Please use our checklist to confirm the requirements of a suitable equestrian environment to gain further practical experience with horses

If you already have a horse care teacher or equestrian coach, they may be already qualified to supervise and/ or assess your practical assessments or even give us a ‘Third Party Report’. (There is an application process for assessors that must be completed prior to your assessment).

Other people who may be qualified to supervise and/ or assess could be your riding instructor, the owner/manager of your stable, or someone-one else you know who has considerable experience with horses. The cost for the practical assessments is paid directly to the assessor.

If you prefer to study the practical components of your course in an ‘on campus’ mode, we hold five day practical workshops about four times during the year at Caboolture (Qld, Australia). There is a discounted charge if you pay for your workshop with your enrolment. It may also be possible to organise workshops at your centre, although there will probably be an additional charge for this.

You may also be required to ‘self’ assess and ‘peer’ assess your practical activities with horses. A ‘peer’ may be some-one with around the same experience as you with horses. They act as a ‘mirror’ and mark off your checklist as you complete your activities.

We may also conduct some verbal assessments during a phone call or phone tutorial. Some of the practical assessments may be simulated when it is impractical to assess in a realistic setting.
