Myr­iad Ben­e­fits

Trail Rider - - PURSUITS -

Ben­e­fits of mem­ber­ship are myr­iad, of­fer­ing some­thing for those who aim to make the equine in­dus­try a life­long ca­reer or for rid­ers who just want to know as much as pos­si­ble as they pur­sue their fa­vorite pas­time. For all, ben­e­fits in­clude: • Ed­u­ca­tion. The list of ed­u­ca­tional prod­ucts is ex­ten­sive: from short YouTube videos or we­bi­nars cre­ated by CHA on var­i­ous top­ics, to ed­u­ca­tional DVDs and how-to man­u­als, there’s much to ex­plore. • Clin­ics. There are both Skills Work­shops and Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Clin­ics in the var­i­ous dis­ci­plines avail­able from CHA. These can be sin­gle-day or mul­ti­day events. Skills Work­shops are open to all rid­ers, whereas Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Clin­ics are avail­able only to those pur­su­ing rid­ing in­struc­tor or equine fa­cil­ity man­ager cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. You can also host a CHA clinic at your fa­cil­ity. • Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. Be­cause of its longevity in the in­dus­try, there are thou­sands of peo­ple hold­ing CHA cer­ti­fi­ca­tion around the world. CHA cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is rec­og­nized in­ter­na­tion­ally as a hall­mark of ex­cel­lence by con­sumers, in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als, and em­ploy­ers. CHA of­fers 80 to 100 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion clin­ics an­nu­ally in the United States and Canada. Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is avail­able in English rid­ing, jump­ing, West­ern rid­ing, trail, driv­ing, vault­ing, and more. • Con­fer­ences. CHA of­fers both re­gional con­fer­ences — there are 11 re­gions — and its an­nual in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence. Con­fer­ences are open to the pub­lic. • Pub­li­ca­tions. The as­so­ci­a­tion pro­duces how-to man­u­als, The In­struc­tor (the of­fi­cial mag­a­zine of the CHA), and TEAMCHA, the news­let­ter for youth mem­bers. As part of the mem­ber­ship price, a year-long sub­scrip­tion to se­lect equine pub­li­ca­tions — such as Ac­tive In­ter­est Me­dia’s The Trail Rider, EQUUS, and Sta­ble Man­age­ment — is in­cluded. • Busi­ness in­for­ma­tion. If you plan to make the equine in­dus­try your pro­fes­sion, CHA has in­for­ma­tion and con­tacts to teach you ev­ery­thing you need to know to run your own busi­ness, from ac­count­ing and mar­ket­ing to in­sur­ance and ad­ver­tis­ing. It also makes avail­able to the pub­lic its direc­tory of cer­ti­fied in­struc­tors and ac­cred­ited fa­cil­i­ties around the world.
