The Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) has a library of topics that can be taught remotely by Chief Executive Officer Christy Landwehr and other key staff to university and college students throughout North America.
Presentation topics include: Teaching Techniques for Riding Instructors, Risk Management in a Riding Program, Event Planning, Marketing Your Equine Business, Working with At-Risk Youth in a Riding Program and many more.
“I would highly recommend utilizing Christy Landwehr’s talents and CHA’s training materials for a collegiate level riding instructors training course,” says Dr. Ann Swinker, Extension Horse Specialist and Associate Professor of Dairy and Animal Sciences at Penn State University.
“Each semester Christy Landwehr talks to my Riding Theory & Techniques class about learning styles, teaching techniques and certification through Certified Horsemanship Association,” says Crystal Smith, Professor of Animal Science at West Virginia University. “Her discussion leads my students to think about how riding lessons are formatted and why, what type of learner they are, and also helps them reflect on me as an instructor. Since this class not only focuses on improving their riding skills, but on starting to develop their teaching skills, Christy’s lecture is a natural fit.”
