About Tish Adams
Tish Adams is a British Horse Society Intermediate Instructor and Pony Club examiner for the B test and the AH Horse and Pony Care tests. She holds an International Coach¹s Passport as well as being a NVQ Assessor and Internal Verifier.
Together with her husband and daughter she runs a small riding school and a livery and training yard in Suffolk.
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.
Her childhood interest and love of horses coupled with her teaching skills led her to train towards her British Horse Society Intermediate Instructor’s Certificate which she obtained in 1984. During this time Tish became very involved in the Pony Club and was Chief Instructor for the Suffolk Hunt branch for many years. She is also involved in Pony Club both at regional and national level.
With her educational experience and Pony Club interests she felt that the Pony Club Efficiency Tests could be trained for in a more structured way allowing members to have an insight into what would be expected of them in the tests. As a result of these ideas the Working Notebook series was written.
