2022 CONTINUING EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES

REGISTERED COACH STATUS WILL DISAPPEAR BY END OF 2024!

English Disciplines: If you have Registered Coach Status (or no Coach Status) and plan to continue coaching, we recommend that you start taking steps NOW to become EC Certified. An EC Certified Coach's training plan includes being evaluated for Level 6 (Instructor) or Level 8 (Competition Coach and Competition Coach Specialist) Rider Levels.

Individual Rider Level evaluations and challenges for English and Western Levels for those working towards Instructor or Competition Coach may be held throughout the year without waiting for an MHC-organized event. A private arena must meet MHC's size standard for a jumping or dressage course; evaluators and paperwork are managed through the MHC office for an administration fee. Please email [email protected] for details.
