Coaches are an essential part of the equestrian sector as good coaches help people participate more whilst developing a wide variety of skills. Coaches not only enhance sporting experiences, but increase and sustain active lifestyles. This in turn brings enormous health and well-being benefits to the nation.

horsescotland is committed to ensuring that Coaches within the Equestrian Sector are qualified and properly insured. Being part of the horsescotland Coaches Register provides the following benefits:


  • Visible and contactable by member bodies and the general public

  • A place to safely store coaching documents/qualifications/record CPD in one place, easily accessible from your phone or laptop

  • Automatic certificate expiry reminders

  • App notifications about Coaching Certficate opportunities
  • Access to a calendar of CPD opportunities from across our Member Bodies

  • Approval to coach within the member body support programmes

  • Notification of member body workshops

  • Discounted insurance including income protection cover

  • Notification of Member Body First Aid/CP courses

  • Being part of the Equestrian Community in Scotland


As well as providing all of these opportunities for coaches we also continually provide training and development to our Coaching Workforce who are responsible for upskilling Coaches. We are also looking to build a coaching resources area (small fee may apply)
