The Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) is looking for host sites for the CHA Equine Facility Management (EFM) Program.

The program is a 20-hour certification clinic that is run over three days. Participants are evaluated on their skills and knowledge of equine facility management through demonstrations and through written tests at each of four levels of certification: Stable Worker (Level 1), Stable Manager (Level 2), Herd Manager (Level 3), and Equine Facility Manager (Level 4). Participants start at level 1 and can complete all four levels within one clinic. Participants are tested in five areas of evaluation: safety, horse handling, horse husbandry, facilities and equipment, and professionalism.

Host sites must be a commercial equine operation that offer a range of functions. Boarding, lesson, or training operations; trail or dude ranch operations, college/university facilities, competition centers, or breeding farms make ideal host sites.

Hosting can be very beneficial in a variety of ways for the host site and its staff. Some of these include allowing a facility’s staff to become certified, either free for staff or at a greatly reduced cost; allows a facility to have a private EFM Clinic if desired; it reduces a facility’s overall insurance costs; and the host site could bring in additional income as a result of hosting.

All host sites for CHA Certification Clinics are pre-approved before a certification clinic can be held at the facility. As a clinic host, the facility becomes the event organizer while the actual clinic is run by two CHA Certified Clinicians. As the event organizer, host sites are required to do the following: send registration information to participants and collect fees, to distribute CHA-provided course materials to participants, to contract with CHA Clinic Staff, and to pay any applicable certification fees from participants to CHA.

To become a new host site for CHA, visit http://cha-ahse.org/store/pages/37/How_to_Host.html. To learn more about the Equine Facility Manager Certification, visit http://cha-ahse.org/store/pages/30/Certifications.html#equine.

The 2017 CHA International Conference will be held Oct. 26 to 29 in Kentucky.
