A True/False, multiple choice written exam to become "certified"...not a riding test.
To me it doesn't look like she is jumping 3'6...so how could she teach it? I don't know. After looking at her leg again...I guess you could call it solid...but I still think she looks like her feet are sprawled and she is doing the "neck humper" pose.[/quote]
That's really bizare in the UK to become a qualified teacher there are 4 parts for the lowest level instructor (me) you do you stage 1,2, and 3 riding and care and your PTT (preliminary teaching exam) then 350 hours teaching at a BHS approved yard in your stage 3 riding you ride 2 horses on the flat schooling to improve their way of going, 1 horse showjumping jump a grid 1st then over a course of showjumps at 1.00 metre then you ride another horse x~country which varies in height but where I took it was 90cm, now as I said I don't think i'm very good
which comes from having 2 sisters that compeate FEI level I find I put alot of pressure on myself to improve and become a better rider..
