As a student who eventually progressed to an instructor, I have found this manual to be invaluable through the years. There is nothing comparable to it. Every instructor and student should have one. Each time I recommend it to a new student (no matter the level), they wish that they had known about it years ago, as it would have made things so much easier.

In the 1960's one of my students went off to a
Ranch Camp for the summer and came back and showed me the horsemanship manual for CHA. I was so impressed with the manual that my daughter and I who ran Minnesota's oldest most vewrsatile riding school, decided to go to California to a certification clinic. We both got certified and I was asked to be on the CHA board which I accepted and served for 10 years. I made many good friendships among them Bill Wiley one of the founders of CHA. When we discussed a name change for the organization I suggested Certified Horse Activities so we wouldn't have to Change the longstanding CHA label. I held several CHA clinics at my facility and certified many teachers. Dody Stacey, a former president was a favorite clinic instructor. I even wrote a theme song for "CHA" which we sang at National Conferences. Though I haven't been active in CHA for a few years due to Cancer and economic
downterm I still recommend CHA and the composite manual to many of my horsemanship students.
