About Tish Adams

Tish Adams has ridden and looked after horses and ponies most of her life. She has ridden competitively in affiliated show jumping and eventing competitions, run a livery and competition yard and is also a British Horse Society Stage 4 Senior Coach.

Having married and trained as a teacher she graduated from the University of London, Goldsmiths College in 1973 and taught in a Comprehensive school in Hertfordshire for five years before having a family.

Tish also worked for The Open College of Equine Studies for seventeen years as Course Advisor and Tutor Team Leader marking papers for distance learning students worldwide.

Tish became involved with The Pony Club in 1985.   Over the years she has had many different roles including being Chief Instructor for the Suffolk Hunt Branch of The Pony Club, coaching at rallies, training members for tests, organising rallies and tests, training and organising show jumping teams, as well as sitting on various committees.

She also organised the B Tests in Area 8 for many years, and was a B and AH Care Test assessor.

When The Pony Club Centre scheme was launched in 1999, she became the Area 8 Pony Club Centre Co-Ordinator and held this post for several years, and during this time instigated and wrote the Progressive Tests for The Pony Club.

With her educational experience and Pony Club interests Tish felt that the Pony Club Efficiency Tests could be trained for in a more structured way to allow members to have an insight into what would be expected of them in the tests.  As a result of these ideas the Working Notebooks series was written.

Tish and her daughter currently run a Riding School and Pony Club Centre in Suffolk.
