Introducing the Tailwind Equestrian Coaching team
All of the Tailwind Equestrian coaching staff are Equine Canada Certified and insured.
What Certification Means
Achieving and maintaining certification as an EC instructor/coach testifies to the instructor/coaches professionalism and competence as a teacher in equestrianism. To obtain a certificate initially, candidates are evaluated at the highest national standard, and must provide evidence of riding ability, a cleared police check, first aid/cpr certification, adherence to the EC code of ethics & conduct, as well as complete professional development as set forth by the CAC.
An instructor/coach who maintains their certification is a professional who is actively involved in the equestrian community.
