Other - Teaching Groups

Sarah Venamore is the NSW State Pony Club Dressage Coach. She is involved in many areas of the Equine industry and is currently on the EA NSW Coaching Committee and the Australian Pony Club Coaching Committee.  Sarah travels widely, training young riders, coaches, horses for vaulting, adults, Pony Club groups and assessing as a coach educator for Equestrian Australia.

Sarah has written several books showing exercises for coaches and riders allowing a better partnership to develop with their horses whilst they are teaching/ riding with a group of riders.
Sarah owns the agistment centre ‘Equiste’ where she offers a range of equine accommodation packages and where she runs Ladies Camps and Young Rider Clinics, incorporating the equine experience with great food and friends. Sarah always has a working pupil, training them in coaching whilst they are ‘on the job’ learning how to manage a property. Horses regularly come in for training with a view to ‘taking them up another level’ for their riders to enjoy and learn on. Online lessons have now become easily available and Sarah is able to keep an eye on her riders regularly from around the nation.

Over the past two years Sarah has won the Leeton Microbusiness Award and is a finalist in the Riverina Microbusiness Award and the Australian Womens Small Business Awards taking the passion and growth of her Equine business to another level where she thanks the horse for allowing her to achieve these awards.

Running Group Lessons – no need for traffic control

This education session shows how to run group lessons.

I will have a number of riders in a 20m x 60m arena. I will show coaches, and instructors from Equestrian Australia, Pony Club, Riding Schools and those who would just like to see exercises to work with their horse, how you can safely move riders around an arena whilst keeping them learning new techniques and improve old ones therefore creating a closer partnership with their horse.

We will show instructors how the exercises can be used so there is no need for ‘traffic control’ teaching – where the instructor would just guide the riders around the arena without teaching much as they spend their time directing the ride. I will exhibit as many exercises we can in the time given to give the instructors the ideas needed to create better riders coming from group lessons around Australia. The mixed-level riders will have their diverse needs and capabilities catered for in the lessons and will create a positive and enriching experience that promotes learning and growth for the instructors to observe.
