Testt ® Coach Certification is a further tool to the vast toolbox an equestrian coach already accesses.
Testt ® Certified Coaches have completed the entry level Testt ® coaching course and have then completed an intensive 2 day education programme to develop their knowledge of the Testt ® process and common asymmetries. The coaches have been educated in the fundamentals of human anatomy, muscle mechanics, proprioception and pain in riders.
The practical elements develop the coaches knowledge in assessing and correcting on horse asymmetry using resistance bands, taping techniques and coaching skills. Coaches are also educated in a hands off approach using functional testing exercises to identify and correct off horse asymmetries.
The assessment of the coach comprises of the submission of 6 case studies followed by an oral viva examination to assess their knowledge base and competencies outlined in the certification process.
Testt ® Certified Coaches are NOT therapists and have not been educated in any hands on therapy modality to correct asymmetries.
