“I would encourage every level 3 coach to apply for this course if they want to keep improving as a coach,” says Dressage coach, Teresa Edmonds. “I have found this course so amazing from the inspirational speakers we’ve had and have found some like-minded coaches to continue to train with. Everything was out of my comfort zone and I would urge the next group to be brave enough to try different things. This course has confirmed to me how you can improve and be a great coach at all levels. It’s made me enjoy coaching my grassroots riders more and has given me more tools in my toolbox to help them and myself in new, exciting and challenging situations.”
