Master Coaches Series

Equestrian Western Australia is excited to present the 2017 Master Coaches Series - a series of masterclasses for Dressage, Eventing and Jumping with some of Western Australia’s leading coaches at the State Equestrian Centre. 

The Master Coaches Series aims to present training techniques with a focus on correct and safe training for all levels of riders. The Series will start with sessions covering the principles of equine learning and behaviourism with a focus on the performance horse, then move into discipline-specific sessions covering core topics of training. The sessions also provide an opportunity for NCAS coaching candidates to complete their coaching observation assessments during some of these Master Classes and those interested in becoming an NCAS coach are encouraged to attend.

All supporters of equestrian sport are invited to participate with discounts available to clubs and groups. The bar will be open from 6:30pm and a food van available on Master Coaches Series evenings.
