May 2016 - Equine Assisted Activities to Enhance Your Own Horsemanship or Your Riding Programs with Gary Millar and Jessica Mohr

 

Gary Millar

A horseman, coach, leader and pioneer in the field of Equine Assisted Learning. For many years, Gary has worked with people helping them improve their quality of their lives through interaction with live horses.EquusAlive

He developed and operates the Arabian Horse Reading Literacy Project where children are motivated to want to read by exposure to good books and exhilarating interaction with live horses.

Gary brings his business experience and his ability as a professional communicator to the table, and offers relevant, practical and real world learning in the Equine Assisted Learning.


Jessica Mohr's love for horses developed at an early age.  However, her only exposure to the animals were the times she spent in KY with her family at Churchill Downs watching races, events at the Horse Park, and stealing glimpses of their neighbor's fox hunting horses down the street.  That is, until she turned 12 and her family moved to a camp in Alaska that had a thriving horse program.  It was her first real introduction to the horse, and to CHA. Due to the opportunities there Jessica found herself able to be certified as an assistant instructor at 16, progressing to instructor, CI, and culminating in the ability to serve on the board of directors, as VP, and a member of the Regional Director Triad for region one.

Jessica's favorite part of the equestrian world are the people and children that it connects her with.  She's had the adventure of instructing Zac Efron and riding as a stunt double in his first movie, The Derby Stallion, to riding dressage against FEI level riders.  Currently, Jessica is thrilled to take children and young adults on horse camping expeditions and trail rides, teaching them about good horse management principles, the importance of character, and how to overcome obstacles. 

 

April 2016 - How to Choose a Camp and Riding Lesson Program with CHA President Peggy Adams and CHA Clinician Aimee Canterbury

 

Peggy Adams is a lifelong horsewoman who is now retired from a career as a riding instructor at her farm, PLA HorsePlay. Even during retirement, Adams remains active with CHA as a CHA Master Instructor, CHA Clinic Staff, a Certified Overnight Guide, and through her various roles on the CHA Board of Directors for nearly a decade. Adams will
share her knowledge with listeners from her experiences with CHA and from her work for more than 25 years as a camp director, riding director, and camp administrator. Prior to
opening her own riding academy, Adams worked for almost three decades with the national Girl Scout organization in various managerial roles. She was instrumental in starting three 
large year-round equine programs, including fundraising, design, and construction of facilities. Adams believes that riders of all abilities and backgrounds should have access to quality experiences with horses. Even before she took on the role of CHA President in 2015, Adams embraced CHA’s instructor certification program by requiring all instructors under her supervision to become certified with CHA. Adams and her husband, Bill, live in Greensboro, GA, with their three dogs.

She facilitates the At-Risk Youth program, oversees the Department of Corrections stable hands, develops program and therapy horses and teaches multiple levels of students in the able body and therapeutic horsemanship programs.
