Certification is a credentialing process that includes training and formal evaluation through independent assessment of coaching competencies and ongoing professional development requirements by a verified provider.
National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP)
As the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) partner for equestrian sport and activity, EC is responsible for leading program development, establishing minimum standards and ensuring consistent and effective delivery across Canada in partnership with the Provincial/Territory Sport Offices (PTSO) - For Saskatchewan this would be the Saskatchewan Horse Federation.
At the beginning of 2021 the EC Coach Status Program was launched.
The purpose of the Coach Status Program is to enable the effective management of coaching related activities within the equestrian industry. Through the provision of a licensing program, EC and its PTSO partners can clearly identify those who have been appropriately screened, met required training and certification requirements and are committed to upholding a series of shared ethical standards.
Those individuals wanting to evaluate for EC/NCCP coaching certification must purchase and complete the requirements to be approved for a Coach Status prior to being evaluated for certification.

Equestrian Coach Education & Certification Overview
The National Equestrian Coaching Program is designed and governed by Equestrian Canada, in partnership with and guided by the principles set out by the Coaches Association of Canada (CAC) and the National Coach Certification Program (NCCP). It is the SHF’s job to administer the National Equestrian Coaching Program in Saskatchewan. So before you read about the details of certification and training, here’s a bit of background. Sport Organizations across Canada and around the world have invested resources into understanding the value and importance of sport and recreation in our lives. From this, we know that participation keeps us happy and healthy. It is important for human development from a very young age where we develop physical literacy right through to our senior years as we strive to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. Participation in sport gives us the confidence to tackle life’s opportunities and challenges. From this broader understanding the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model was created. This model recognizes that there is an ideal way to begin, progress for recreation or excellence, and enjoy physical activity throughout our life. If you want more information about LTAD, we’d refer you to the Canadian Sport 4 Life website (canadiansportforlife.ca) where you can browse or find detailed information on the LTAD model. You’re probably reading this document because you are a coach, want to be a certified coach or you are a parent or rider interested in learning about coaching in your sport, so read on! If you have any questions or would like to talk to us in person you can reach us at [email protected] or call 306-780-9490
What Is Long Term Athlete Development?
Science, research and decades of experience all point to the same thing: kids and adults will get active, stay active, and even reach the greatest heights of sport achievement if they do the right things at the right times. This is the logic behind the LTAD model. Equestrian sport identifies six stages within the basic LTAD model:
The initial stages develop physical literacy before puberty, so children have the basic skills to be active for life. Physical literacy also provides the foundation for those who choose to pursue elite training in one sport or activity after age 12. The competitive stages provide elite training for those who want to specialize in one sport and compete at the highest level, maximizing the physical, mental and emotional development of each athlete. Active for Life is about staying active through lifelong participation in competitive or recreational sport or physical activity.
The SHF has developed its own Long Term Equestrian Development Model as a blueprint for building the best sport system possible. To Learn more about the SHF LTED click here
What Does LTAD Have to Do with Coaching?
When you were a kid, what was your experience with sport? When you participated in Physical Education classes, team sports, swimming lessons, or dance classes – was it fun? Did you learn skills? And did it make you want to keep playing? Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) is a movement to make sport and physical activity better, so more Canadians will get quality training, more will continue participating, and more will reach the medals podium. LTAD is the CS4L pathway for developing top-rank athletes and increasing overall participation in sport and physical activity. It includes guidelines for training, competition and recovery based on principles of human development and maturation. LTAD considers the best interests of the athlete. LTAD is built on sport science and best practices in coaching from around the world, and it follows 10 Key Factors that influence how athletes train and compete effectively. Coaches stand at the forefront of delivering programs that respect the principles and science of LTAD.
Excerpts from Canadian Sport 4 Life website, March 2016
What Does it Mean to be a Certified Equestrian Coach?
Canada’s equestrians, both new and experienced, are looking for direction and guidance that can be found through a mentor or coach. These individuals play a role that brings together the love of a sport with skill and learning. As with many sports, the coaches who impart information and help develop the skills that set athletes up for success also need to be cultivated and developed. Saskatchewan Horse Federation (SHF) is the partner to help develop your coaching skills. SHF administers a program recognized by, and in partnership with, the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) and Equestrian Canada (EC). The Coaching Program covers both English and Western disciplines. The Coaching Program is formatted to develop skills of safety, planning, encouragement, equestrian knowledge and technical competency.
What is the Coaching Program?
The Coaching Program offers SHF members a chance to be recognized by the governing organizations within the equestrian community, as well as add accreditation to their own facilities. The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) is a government initiated program designed to give the public knowledgeable and qualified instructors and coaches at every level of all sports. The certification process is available in four different levels: Instructor, Competition Coach, Competition Coach Specialist and High Performance Coach. Specialization within disciplines is introduced at the Competition Coach Specialist level. You do not need to take one before you take another; they are independent and should be taken according to the student base you are teaching. Whether you are interested in coaching beginners or have a passion for the competitive world, there is a coaching level suited to you. Over time, you may find your focus changes or expands, at which point we would encourage you to explore a new level of certification appropriate to your clientele. This guide will walk you through the requirements and process to be educated and certified at each of the levels of coaching offered in Canada.
Why be Certified?
Certification demonstrates that the individual is professional and accountable, able to adhere to the established standards of ethics and the EC Code of Conduct. A career in coaching takes great mentors, practice, education and time. As with any other professions, coaches work in a world that is constantly evolving and progressing. Equestrian coaching requires diligence to safety and an understanding of the learning needs of your students. Through the Coaching Program, candidates are certified to have proven strengths and education in all areas. Courses available to candidates continue to reinforce good practice techniques and give coaches the opportunity to connect with peers and mentors to learn new techniques and exercises. As a certified coach, recognition of achieving a standard of coaching skills provides potential clients with a measure of your skills, rather than just relying on word of mouth. Continuing education and required professional development assure clients of your commitment to stay current in the sport. Independent insurance companies also provide discounts for farm and facility insurance to certified active coaches. Remember: Not being certified doesn’t mean you are not a good coach, it means a client or parent doesn’t KNOW if you have had any formal training and uncertified coaches are not bound by the national Code of Conduct or Code of Ethics, nor have they completed a screening process.
The first step in deciding on a level of certification to work towards is to determine “Who is my clientele?” The Instructor of Beginner focuses on a non-competitive or recreational rider, specializing in teaching equestrians who enjoy their horses outside of a competitive context. This program is focused on those who wish to take on the instruction of children and adults learning to ride, establishing foundational riding skills with an eye on safety. Instructor of Beginners is available for English and Western disciplines.
Additional disciplines including Driving and Saddle Seat are in development with Equestrian Canada, but are not yet available for coach certification in Saskatchewan.
The Competition Coach focuses on those who are interested in coaching riders in a competitive environment. This certification targets individuals developing equestrian skills in riders of all ages who wish to compete at regional or provincial competitions (Equestrian Canada Bronze or Silver level). In order to become certified as a Competition Coach or Competition Coach Specialist, more advanced skills are required in the development of a competitive training program, performance analysis and mental preparation for competition. Competition Coach Certification is available in English and Western disciplines.
Competition Coach Specialist
The Competition Coach Specialist focuses on riders who are training to compete; the higher the level of the rider, the more discipline specific the coach will be. Coaches certified at this level are certified within a specific English or Western discipline. This certification will allow a coach to continue to reinforce basic skills, horsemanship and safety, but will also advance a rider to the Silver or Gold level of competition. This coach should be able to evaluate the horse, its suitability for a student, oversee stable management and operations and have experience training horses for the competition world. Beyond the Competition Coaching level, this level requires a working knowledge of the Equestrian Canada competition rules for the level and discipline they’re teaching. The Competition Coach Specialist certification is currently available for English disciplines (Dressage, Hunter/Jumper, Eventing) and Western disciplines (Reining, Speed Events, General Performance.). **There is an application/portfolio that must be completed for this level of certification; for more information or to request an application contact the SHF Office by emailing [email protected] or call 306-780-9490
High Performance (Administered Entirely by Equestrian Canada)
The High Performance Coach program is designed for those working with riders looking to succeed at the national championship level or toward Junior/Young Rider FEI or similar international level competition. Certification is currently available for English disciplines of Dressage, Jumper, Eventing and the Western discipline of Reining. Coaches who meet the application criteria are invited to apply to Equestrian Canada whether they have been certified in the past or not. While it is a prerequisite for applicants to document their personal athletic performance in their discipline, riding is no longer a component of the evaluation process. Information on this program is available on the Equestrian Canada website at http://equestrian.ca and searching for High Performance Coach Certification.
Register as a Candidate
Once you have determined the coaching stream that suits you and your skills, the first step is to contact Saskatchewan Horse Federation at [email protected] to register as a coach candidate. We will then send you a detailed information package, which includes a Coach File Declaration form that must be completed and returned. Once we receive your Coach Declaration Form, we will set up an SHF coaching file to track your progress toward certification. There is no fee to open a coach file, and no timeline for you to complete your certification. Whether you plan to move toward evaluation as quickly as possible, or years down the road, putting your name forward as a coach candidate will allow us to notify you of clinics, workshops, and evaluations being scheduled, at your desired level and in your discipline. Before completing your first NCCP training or submitting any of your evaluation prerequisites, you will set up a National Coach Certification Program (NCCP) electronic profile for yourself in a system called “The Locker” where you will be assigned an NCCP number. Any further NCCP activities you complete will be added to your NCCP profile. Your NCCP profile will track all of your NCCP coach training, including training you may do in other sports and/or other provinces across Canada.
Mentoring with an already certified instructor/coach who is familiar with the NCCP and evaluation requirements can help prepare candidates for what to expect come evaluation time. Mentors can help guide you through the rubrics and other preparatory materials for evaluations as well as spend time with candidates working on analyzing performance as set out in the evaluation requirements. At this current time there is no formal mentoring program or requirements in place, however, this step is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to candidates looking for successful outcome come evaluation time.
To give prospective coaches the best opportunity to succeed at seeking and acquiring EC/NCCP certification. The SHF is proud to partner with and promote training offered through Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) through the NCCP Locker, Coaching Association of Saskatchewan (CAS), Equestrian Canada - ECampus, and Respect in Sport through the Respect Group. As well the SHF hosts coach development opportunities such as a bi-annual coaching symposium.
