Finding an Instructor

Unlike Europe, there is no requirement for instructors to be licensed or certified in the US. Most instructors have completed no formal training program, although many have worked with well-known and accomplished trainers. However, there are several organizations that offer formal training and certification programs:

The Certified Horsemanship Association (FB: Certified Horsemanship Association)

American Riding Instructors Association (FB: American Riding Instructors Association)

US Hunter Jumper Association (FB: United States Hunter Jumper Association – USHJA)

Centered Riding (FB: Centered Riding)

US Dressage Federation
