Perceived educational value of two teaching approaches for improving knowledge of youth leaders and team coaches Academic Article uri icon


  • Surveys were completed by equine leaders/coaches to measure changes in perceived judging competency and to assess if a judging Web site and an on-line resource are effective teaching aids. Results found that participants felt more knowledgeable about performance horse classes and better understood proper format, organization, and presentation of oral reasons. Data indicate that the information presented to participants in the workshop and Web site was informative, significantly increasing participants' understanding of judging procedures, and, in turn, presented an easily accessible way to potentially improve the competency of coaches and the ability of the youth they instruct.
