The Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) is holding its first-ever Virtual International Conference on Friday, October 30, 2020. This event will be open to all horse enthusiasts with a CHA member and non-member rate for the educational day.

This conference will not just be your typical Zoom call with talking heads and PowerPoint presentations. The sessions will be very interactive, and some will be doing videos ahead of time with riders up on horses to showcase what they are teaching during their presentations. They will then be online to answer any questions during the video sessions and afterwards.

CHA has already confirmed the following as interactive speakers: CHA Spokesperson and Certifier Julie Goodnight, Jochen Schleese with SaddleFit4Life, Dr. Julie Fischer on grant writing and fundraising for your equine business, Tara Reimer of Cloud 9 Ranch in Manitoba on turnbacks and rollbacks, and many more!
