Ponderings of an Equestrian Professional

Am I a riding Instructor or Coach?



Filling in a form at the dentist today it asked for my occupation, and I had to think quite hard. I see myself as a coach and all my clients as athletes, but I haven't been confident with that description.


Today I've been thinking about why.



When I took my BHS exams I was called an Assistant Instructor, now I'm considered to be a level 3 Complete Coach.

With Centre 10 I have done the training in Applied Psychology for Equestrian Coaches, and it was doing this that made me start looking at riders as the athletes they are.
