TWHBEA Certification Clinic for Riding Instructors Scheduled for May



TWHBEA will hold a Level I Clinic to certify riding instructors Thursday, May 27 at Midland Equestrian Center in Shelbyville, Tenn. Why is certification important to the riding instructor and to the horse industry?

1. TWHBEA will advertise and market only for those instructors who have been certified in the TWHBEA Certified Instructors’ Program.

2. The experiences required for certification are more beneficial to the instructor than the certificate itself. The process of certification reflects the examination and evaluation of the teaching abilities of the candidate.

3. Only TWHBEA Certified Instructors will be allowed to participate in the TWHBEA Winter Tournaments.

4. Certification demonstrates to the public, to the employer and to one’s peers, the value that a riding instructor places on the profession. Most candidates pursue certification for job requirements, insurance coverage or to aid in their personal growth in the riding ad teaching industry.

5. There are many insurance companies who will only issue coverage to "certified" instructors.

6. A consumer survey documented that parents desire certification.

7. The value of certification to the instructor is a better edge in the job market, liability insurance availability, and a heightened concern for his/her student’s safety.

Only the first 15 applicants will be accepted to the clinic. Anyone interested in this clinic or the Certified Instructors’ Program should call Joni Jenne’ at TWHBEA 931-359-1574 ext. 156.
