Teaching New Horse Riding Skills in Four Stages

Having these skills can be broken down into four stages of competence.

1. Unconscious inefficiencies

4. Unconscious skills

1. Unconscious incompetence

This kind of stage of any skill could apply to the general public who do not have knowledge of a specific horseback using skill (like rising to the trot), do not realize that they would require this skill to ride horses and possess no interest in learning this skill. ireland horseback riding castles

At this level a horse-riding instructor might not exactly see the need to obtain certain teaching skills. The instructor may or may well not ride horses yet. They might not exactly have considered their career with race horses or even that it is possible to have a career as a horse-riding instructor. 

On the other hand a horse-riding instructor or equestrian trainer may already teach specific experienced riders and are unaware that they do not have the skills to novice riders in a bunch lesson. The trainer who only teaches specific experienced riders may reject the usefulness of learning a new skill like being able to safely and securely teach a group of novice horse riders how to ride safely in the group.

Prior to biker or instructor can move onto the next level, they may need to consider that learning to climb to the trot or teaching groups is a likelihood for them and in addition they must also recognize that they do not already have the skills to perform the required task.

2. Mindful incompetence

At this point the driver or the instructor has recognized that they just do not at present know how to climb to the trot or to teach groups of riders safely. They may have become conscious of the deficit in their knowledge as well as the value in understanding the new skill.

Since the horse rider or horse-riding instructor now realizes that they would like to learn how to surge to the trot or to control groups securely, they always learn until they become competent.

The line between this level and the next is never clear. There may be times when the rider finds rising to the trot is not hard and the next lesson parts of this skill needs to be learnt again. There may be lessons where instructor has safe group control and then the next lesson there is less control.

The talented horse rider or horse-riding instructor may improvement fairly quickly through this stage. However it is the less talented biker or instructor who finds out the importance of making mistakes. This kind of later group often understands the skill of circumventing down each challenge into sizable chunks. After the fourth stage they can usually teach this skill more easily to others, as their comprehension of the challenges is greater.

3. Conscious competence

At this time, the horse rider can surge to the trot and the horse-riding instructor can keep everything safe while teaching a group. The rider and instructor need to be focused and keep their concentration while they are performing the task. If they happen to be interrupted the horse rider may lose the rhythm of the rising trot and the group the horse-riding teacher is teaching may well not maintain the correct distance or one of the race horses may misbehave.
