The Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) International Conference will be held Oct. 23-26, 2014 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. This event is open to the public and participants get to ride on great school horses in the sessions! As part of this event, CHA does a silent auction to raise money for a scholarship fund that helps riding instructors just starting out be able to attend a certification clinic.
The CHA International Conference is for riding instructors, barn managers, trainers, horse professionals and general horse owners and enthusiasts. The CHA Conference will include mounted workshops, ground lessons and lectures from top instructors, trainers, veterinarians, trail experts, business professionals, saddle fitters and many others. Please see this link to register and to see the tentative schedule of wonderful presenters and their sessions. Media passes are available.
The purpose of CHA is to promote excellence in safety and education for the benefit of the horse industry. CHA certifies instructors and trail guides, accredits equestrian facilities, produces educational manuals and DVDs and hosts regional and international conferences.
