My Student Fell Off! : One Time Serial Rights 1500 Words. Price $145.00
The little mentioned but large elephant in the room is the stress and nervousness that equestrian instructors/riding teachers feel after one of their students takes a fall. This ‘Oh Dear’ moment can have lasting effects on the way the teacher implements future lessons or indeed, an individual may even give up teaching altogether. This article addresses how to handle the long and short term repercussions of such an event from the perspective of the trainer, without folding on making difficult or challenging requests of the riders in front of them, dismissing feelings of guilt and taking responsibility for actions and most importantly, advice on how to build back teaching talents better than they were before the incident.
The Trainers’ Triangles: First Time Serial Rights 1500 words. Price $225.00
Navigation of the ‘trainers’ triangles’ can be difficult when emotions and talents of the participants do not converge quite the way the trainer hopes. The triangle can be that of horse/rider and trainer, or rider/horse owner and trainer – either way good communication, realistic expectations and a sound plan must be devised to ensure a fruitful and successful meeting of the minds. As an international competitor/coach/clinician Nikki brings her experience from the angle of participating in all 3 positions with tips to help guide the trainer to ultimate triumph over this sometime difficult terrain to traverse. ‘Don’t get lost in the Bermuda triangle!”
Follow The Horse in Front: First Time Serial Rights 1500 words. Price $225.00
The essentials of trail riding etiquette, riding in an informal group or formal show setting are discussed with a good pinch of humor in this tongue-in-cheek look at the sometimes ridiculous and sometimes religious adherence to certain protocols in the 3 settings. As Nikki put’s it, ~ “Don’t be what you see in front of you,” when out riding with others.
