(January 2022) – Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) is encouraging equine facilities (lesson program barns, camps, universities/colleges, dude ranches, trail ride operations, etc.) to host a CHA Certification to certify your own staff, accredit your facility and make some money doing so! We are looking for host sites in all states and provinces that might be interested. Please reach out to us at office@CHA.horse to find out more.
CHA Certifications are intensive multi-day events in which attendees learn and demonstrate their skills so they can be certified at one of CHA’s various certification types and levels. They are currently available for the English/Western Instructor, Equine Facility Manager, Vaulting, Driving, Trail, Seasonal Equestrian Staff, University/College and Instructors of Riders with Disabilities.
At this time, CHA Certifications are available in the following locations: Alabama, Alberta, Colorado, Indiana, Maine, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Washington. CHA conducts certifications around the US and Canada each year. Most will be posted on the CHA website by the end of March for 2022. Each host site will specify which meals are included and if a lodging option is available with the final price.
A person’s willingness to dedicate their time and money to the CHA certification process indicates that they are a serious professional. CHA certified equine professionals must demonstrate a high level of professional competence and adhere to continuing education requirements set forth by CHA to maintain their certification. In addition, many insurance companies recognize certification and will give discounts.
For anyone wishing to host a CHA Certification, the organization is taking applications to host in 2022 and beyond. Host sites must be approved by CHA. If your facility would like to become a new host site for CHA, please visit https://cha.horse/how-to-host-a-cha-clinic/
