Village Creek is hosting a CHA Instructor Training!
CHA offers certification as an instructor of riding theory and application for group riding instructors dealing with progressive skill building in all levels of riders, primarily in the arena. Certification may be earned in the Western discipline by successfully completing a five-day certification clinic which includes teaching at least four practice lessons, a riding evaluation and a written test. The level of certification attained, if any, is at the sole discretion of the CHA Certifiers and is determined by skills and knowledge demonstrated during the certification clinic. Participants are evaluated on their ability to teach group riding lessons. Categories of evaluation are safety, horsemanship, teaching techniques, group control and professionalism. Different levels may be achieved in each seat with and without jumping.
