coach education

As an experienced coach educator, Karen can start you on your journey to becoming an EA coach. She can assess and train up to Level 2 dressage. Sessions can be conducted in groups or individually.

If you don’t want to coach but just want to learn more about horse management and riding in a structured way, Karen can help you complete your EA Introductory Horse Management and Riding certificates using the workbooks which can be purchased from Equestrian Australia. Karen can guide you through this material and assess you.

Coming to horse riding later in life, and to the daunting sport of dressage was challenging. Karen understood of my passion for a partnership with my horse, had an appreciation for my aging joints and guided me through lessons and competitions. Few coaches have such a combination of competency in the foundation basics of horse and rider, supportive and motivating teaching techniques, and a genuine love and compassion for horses.
