Coaching with a headset
I bought a 2 way headset a few weeks ago to use whilst coaching. As I am coaching more private lessons at the moment, I thought the headset would be a good tool to complement the lessons.
Not every coach finds it useful or would want to use one but having used one now for awhile, I find that it gives you a better connection with your rider, without having to fight to be heard.
It also works particularly well with a shy new rider that I have… he would barely say boo but with the headset, as he is riding, he is able to give feedback to me without feeling too shy.
So far, I am enjoying my new toy and I think everyone else enjoys not having to listen to me yell!
