Program Overview

The Gold Coast Academy of Sport (GCAS) is excited and pleased to be in a position to offer a sporting development program for Pony Club/Equestrian disciplines.

Athletes would be invited to participate in a development program incorporating general fitness work and personal development with the practical work they do while on the horse. This program is aimed at providing additional benefits outside of normal club and coaching sessions.

The focus of sessions will be on offering professional presentations relating to the health and well-being of both the rider and the horse.  General fitness and strength would be a main focus of the program for the rider with other topics ranging from Nutrition of rider and horse (natural and supplementation), Veterinary advice, alternative therapies for horse, to Body Maintenance for horse and rider to name a few. These core educational sessions will be delivered by professional presenters in their respective fields.

The Objective

The objective of conducting this initiative for Equestrian athletes is to further the education of riders on how they can improve their performance on the horse while also understanding how they can improve the health and well-being of their mount.
