(May 2022) – The Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) and Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) are partnering to provide educational speakers for the CHA International Conference that is scheduled for October 20 – 22 at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro just outside of Nashville. Speakers at this event include riding instructors, horse trainers, barn managers, veterinarians, equine behaviorists, farriers, saddle fit specialists, equine association representatives, business consultants, and other equine professionals. Those wishing to attend the conference should Save the Dates.
“CHA and IEA are multi-breed and multi-discipline organizations,” says CHA Chief Executive Officer Christy Landwehr. “We are thrilled to have IEA join us in helping in the networking and education of our memberships as it relates to horsemanship safety and excellence that we all impart to our students.”
“The IEA Education Committee saw a need to provide IEA coaches with additional tools to assist them in bringing the best to their teams and programs,” says Courtney Smith IEA Education Committee Chair. “Partnering with CHA was a natural fit to promote safe, effective and fun educational resources to our membership. This is an incomparable opportunity to learn from others, network with instructors from all over the country, and take home some new tools to reenergize our programs.”
