Andrew Scott joined Nga Tawa as its Head of Equestrian in 2023.
He is known for his hugely successful international riding career which saw him named in two Olympic teams, win seven national titles and a team gold at the World Equestrian Games.
It is in the coaching arena that he now excels, and Andrew says he found his true passion when he started coaching. He is an elite Equestrian Sports New Zealand coach in all three equestrian disciplines, dressage, show jumping and eventing.
His list of coaching achievements is lengthy. Much like his riding career, coaching has taken Andrew around the world. He coached Brazil at the World Equestrian Games and to double gold at the Pan-American games. He was the Indian eventing team coach for the 2014 Asian games and has mentored and coached other riders to progress to international representation for Brazil, Thailand, Denmark, and New Zealand.
He has coached New Zealand Pony Club Champs and Show Jumping teams and spent six years coaching the New Zealand Under 21 eventing team, who were undefeated during his tenure. Andrew was recognised for his coaching achievements by being awarded the Prime Minister's Coaching Scholarship.
