Anyone wanting to perform their best in sport knows that good coaching is a crucial element in achieving success. Equestrian sport is no different with good coaching playing a fundamental role in training our riders and horses across all levels. Coaches are just as important at lower levels as they are at the top.

ESNZ strongly values coaching and has had a coaching programme in place for many years. However, every programme needs to develop and improve, and we are now ready to start an exciting new focus on coaching in equestrian sport.

Over the next few months, we will be redeveloping the ESNZ Coaching Development Strategy to improve the pathway for members in all disciplines. So please look out for details coming shortly on how we can capture what you think is important in coaching and how the strategy can help deliver world class coaching for our riders into the future.
