We occasionally allow outside coaches to give lessons. They must fill in an application to coach, specifying which discipline they intend to coach. NBEA membership, insurance, and proof of certification (if any) must be submitted with their application and their application must be approved, with their name being added to the approved coaching list before they can book lessons.
Once an application is accepted the following rules will apply for approved specialised coaches:
1.Coaches must request permission before booking in lessons. 2.Picket Hill Equestrian Facility coaches lessons, and riders have priority on the arena schedule 3.Arena use is subject to a $20 an hour fee. 4.Coaches may only teach lessons in the disciplines approved.
Once an application is accepted the following rules will apply for all general coaches
1Coaches must request permission before booking in lessons. 2Picket Hill Equestrian Facility coaches lessons, and riders have priority on the arena schedule 3Generalized coaching (eg. Lessons that could otherwise be given by PHEC coaches) is subject to a 50/50 income split on the lesson per horse/rider combination. If coach is using PHEC horses the split will be 60% to PHEC and 40% to the coach. 4Lessons will be charged at the same rate at PHEC lessons. 5General coaches who increase their lesson fee’s by the 50% or 40% will be banned from future coaching at PHEC. Picket Hill Equestrian Centre considers this practice unethical. 6Coaches may only teach lessons in the disciplines approved.
