Mentor

Objectives:
This badge is to encourage senior members to help and mentor younger members in their branch. This can be done by pairing younger and older members together for education sessions. The older member is not the instructor but helps the junior in practical education sessions, e.g. learning grooming, parts of the horse, colours, markings etc. At mounted meetings the mentor can help tacking up, mounting etc. The older member may be a non-riding team captain/helper at a D rally, assisting their team with stable management. He/she can also coach younger members for quiz or help with PPG practices.

Check sheets will be provided to monitor the progress of mentors over a winter?s education sessions, summer camps, etc.
