Equestrian Canada/Coaches Association of Ontario online courses

EC's ECampus’s live training calendar includes a suite of online NCCP Multi-sport Training Modules tailored to equestrian coaches, offered as a result of EC’s strengthened partnership with the CAC’s Provincial/Territorial Coaching Representatives. The Coaches Association of Ontario (CAO) is graciously supporting the first wave of training modules.

  • NCCP Make Ethical Decisions
  • NCCP Teaching and Learning
  • NCCP Psychology of Performance
  • NCCP Leading Drug-Free Sport
  • NCCP Developing Athletic Abilities

Additionally, EC has developed three NCCP Equestrian-specific Training Modules:

  • EC/NCCP Long-Term Equestrian Development
  • EC/NCCP Design an Equestrian Sport Program
  • EC/NCCP Plan an Equestrian Practice

For information and how to access these courses through MyEC, follow this link.

English & Western Rider Levels and Challenges for Candidate Coaches

If you are not currently in the Rider Level pathway, Manitoba Horse Council arranges Rider Level evaluations for those competent riders who wish to challenge (ie go straight to that level without being tested individually at the lower levels) prior to going forward to Instructor or Competition Coach/Specialist. If you do not have your own coach who can refer you, please contact [email protected] to find out more.

English & Western Evaluations for Instructor, Competition Coaches

Depending on Covid restrictions, during 2021 MHC will be offering evaluations for all levels. Registered or Licenced Coach Status is required for all candidates. Please call the office for the list of pre-requisites.
