The event is open to CHA members and non-members with registration. Attendees have included riding instructors of all kinds, trail guides, driving and vaulting coaches, barn managers, horse owners, riders, and general horse enthusiasts who have a desire to learn and network with like-minded equestrians. The focus of the conference is on horsemanship safety and effectiveness, and speakers cover all breeds and disciplines since CHA is an all-breed and all-discipline-based organization.

CHA is now accepting speaker applications for classroom-style lectures, hands-on horse demonstrations, and speakers that can run a mounted group riding session. Certain sessions at the conference allow attendees to sign up as riders on a first-come first-serve basis. The mounted educational sessions are always some of the most popular sessions.

Those wishing to speak should contact CHA’s CEO Christy Landwehr at 720-857-9550 or with a professional biography and a session title and description. In addition, please include any needs you may have for equipment for your session with your submission. The deadline for these materials is March 12, 2018.
