Kentucky Horse Park to Host Certified Riding Instructor Clinic
The Kentucky Horse Park announces a Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) Standard Certification Clinic to be held April 7-11, 2011.
CHA’s goals are to promote safety, education and quality in horseback riding programs and develop qualified riding instructors for camps, stables, schools and other locations where riding instruction is given. The clinic is designed to improve teaching techniques and certify riding instructors. Riding instructors can be certified by the style they teach Western, English, etc. Nearly 1,000 instructors are certified by CHA each year.
CHA clinics are directed by nationally recognized CHA Clinic Instructors. Participants have the opportunity to teach several mounted and ground lessons, receive feedback from other participants and the clinic instructors, and to improve their safety, herd and program management skills.
The Kentucky Horse Park strongly supports the mission and purpose of CHA and feels this is an excellent opportunity for any instructor to gain certification or simply brush up or enhance their teaching skills.
