Im just wondering what is the best direction for me to take, I have had some responses that the EFA coach educators are just lining their pockets with your money, which sounds like sour grapes to me but who knows.

Also Im wondering if it will be cheaper to go through a private organisation like the Hartogs horseridingcoach.com or to pay a coach educator. Its so confusing. aaaaaargh.

Well Im an EFA member anyway and I'll be registering my horse so it seems the easiest way to go. Any suggestions appreciated.

I am not an EFA coach. Have thought about it but never started (too busy with uni, work and riding).

I do however get lessons with a NCAS Level 2 instructor who is also a Coach Educator. I would not say they are just lining their own pockets.

It still takes time, patience and skill to work with the people wanting to be Level 1. They have to do an aweful lot to do with assessing and signing off and committing themselves to helping people pass a certificate when they could be helping people learn to ride.

I am a level 2 coach.. Level 3 in the UK..

I certainly am not lining my pockets.., but can understand how it could be perceived that way.

Odd.... I voted for my choice, and it won't let me vote again so it has definitely been registered. Yet it still says "no votes for this choice"... haven't blocked one of the stinky ones have you??? :)
