Ontario Equestrian is excited to bring a new mentoring and certification opportunity to Competition Coach – English & Western candidates this fall!
Using a cohort working together in a virtual environment, candidates in the group will work together with experienced Coach Developers Kim Woolley and Susan Caldwell through training and mentoring to prepare for certification. The cohort will kick off the training and mentoring process on September 21, 2023 and will work together until late December 2023. At the conclusion of the cohort, candidates will be assessed and given an action plan to continue training or complete certification.
