In this episode I catch up with dressage rider and coach, Jane Randall. Jane is a Dressage Coach and Rider with an all round equestrian background having evented and show jumped, ridden point to point and enjoyed many happy days on the hunting field. Dressage is Jane's passion and she has competed Nationally & Internationally and produced her own horses to Grand Prix. (including her hunter!)
Jane is now following her passion for all things equestrian as a coach and mentor. She is a British Equestrian Level 4 Coach, British Dressage Accredited Coach, MSc professional Practice in Sports Coaching , Mentor Coach with a keen interest in developing coaching science in equestrian sports.
When I first met Jane, she was exploring skill acquisition and coaching pedagogy as part of her British Equestrian Level 4 coach award at Gloucester University in the UK. We had many wonderful conversations about understanding and applying theories of learning and development with horses, humans and horse-human partnerships.
When I was asked to host a session about applying a constrains-led approach (CLA) to equestrian disciplines and activities at the upcoming Connected Equestrian Coaches Conference, I was really keen to ask Jane to share her experiences.
