CHA stands for Certified Horsemanship Association. Cannon Equine uses certified instructors and guidelines set by CHA as well as educational books for each level. We also do write ups on each student's lesson that gets emailed to parents/riders along with a monthly newsletter. There are four levels and our riders have written and riding tests to go up a level. With each level our riders achieve, they receive a pin and certificate. After riders finish level four, we hope for them to move on to another barn that specifies in the higher level discipline that they wish to do or some riders just want to have their own horse and trail ride! Our hope is to educate riders and help them make their dreams come true!
CHA's Why Statement is "CHA changes lives through safe experiences with horses."
CHA's Purpose/Mission Statement is To promote excellence in safety and education for the benefit of the entire horse industry. This is accomplished by certifying instructors, accrediting equine facilities, producing educational conferences and publishing educational resources such as horsemanship manuals, DVDs, safety video shorts, webinars, a monthly radio show, weekly blog, posters and much more.
