Skills recognition process for riders with competition results

Step 1:

Please view the following table to see what competition results are required for each riding level.

Step 2:

Obtain a written endorsement from a Coach Educator stating the level at which you are entering our system. The CE is required to complete the EA Coach Educator Endorsement form found HERE

Collect the required competition results and purchase the relevant EA riding resource book via the Skills Recognition Resource Order Form found HERE.

Note: WEG and Olympic athletes can be accelerated to Level 2 Horse Management and Level 2 Riding/Personal Skills. However, you cannot be accelerated to commence Level 2 Coaching. You must be assessed as competent at Level 1 before progressing through the pathway. 

Note: You must submit the written endorsement from a Coach Educator for the level you are purchasing with your Resource Order Form. You must also be a current EA Member, and at least 18 years old. You can only use the Skills Recognition Order Form once per discipline. You will need to purchase the second discipline at the normal rates.

Step 3:

Present the results to an EA Coach Educator- to find a coach educator the Coach search can be used HERE

-        Your coach educator can verify the components already completed and proven by competition results and sign off these assessment tasks accordingly.

-        Work with your CE who will assess you on the gap requirements which are not proven by competition results- for example lunging.

-        Once all assessments have been signed off submit the final assessment slip located in the back of the workbook to the national office to receive a certificate of completion

Step 4:

If you are looking to register as an EA Coach once all assessments have been signed off, please submit the New Coach Registration form, which can be downloaded from the Coach Resources page.

Along with the registration form, you must also provide copies of:

- First Aid Certificate (Certificate HLTAID003 - Provide First Aid)

- Working with Children Check

- ASC Community Coaching General Principles (free to complete online via the Ausport website)

- Sport Integrity Australia Anti Doping Fundamentals and Annual Update (free to complete online via the Sport Integrity Australia website)

- Insurance Certificate of Currency (only needed if you are using your own insurance and not EA's included insurance option)
