Com­mit­ment to Ex­cel­lence

Trail Rider - - PURSUITS -

The Cer­ti­fied Horse­man­ship As­so­ci­a­tion (http://cha-ahse.org and www.CHA in­struc­tors.com) is one of Amer­ica’s largest non-univer­sity-based equine ed­u­ca­tion providers.

The 501(c)(3) non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion — which was founded in 1967 and will cel­e­brate its 50th year of ser­vice in 2017 — has cho­sen as its slo­gan: “CHA changes lives through safe ex­pe­ri­ences with horses.” The group calls this its “Why State­ment,” em­pha­siz­ing why those in­volved in the equine in­dus­try can have full con­fi­dence in what CHA rep­re­sents.

CHA has set as its pur­pose: “To pro­mote ex­cel­lence in safety and ed­u­ca­tion for the ben­e­fit of the en­tire horse in­dus­try.” Con­tin­u­ing from this pur­pose, the mis­sion state­ment reads: “This is ac­com­plished by cer­ti­fy­ing in­struc­tors, ac­cred­it­ing equine fa­cil­i­ties, pro­duc­ing ed­u­ca­tional con­fer­ences and pub­lish­ing ed­u­ca­tional re­sources such as horse­man­ship man-
