Emotional Labour in Equestrian Coaching – Webinar

Posted on 13th April 2024

New Webinar on 29 April at 7.00pm-8.00pm

Emotional Labour is the ‘work’ we carry out when managing our feelings, be that under or over playing an emotion, suppressing, or changing an emotion within a work role. The management of our own emotions and those of other people’s is necessary in many areas of life and becomes emotional labour when performed within a work setting. Equestrian sport as a whole carries a huge emotional commitment and investment and whilst the rewards can be great, we must equally be mindful of the potential costs and safeguard against this.

If you work as an equestrian coach, are a yard owner/business manager or employer, and are interested in learning more about emotional labour please join the webinar to find out more.

We will cover:

  1. What is emotional labour (EL)?  Introduction to the concept
  2. The role of emotion in equestrian coaching or the workplace
  3. Potential impact on those engaging in EL
  4. Practical implications and future recommendation
  5. Discussion and Q&A
