New Edition of Composite Horsemanship Manual by CHA

(May 2008) – The Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) has just released its newest edition of the Composite Horsemanship Manual. Written by 30 professional horsemanship instructors from around the United States and Canada – this four-level manual contains a complete program for all levels of riders. Written and riding tests at the end of each level progress you or your students to the next level in horsemanship. From how to halter to flying lead changes - this educational manual has it all.

The CHA Composite Horsemanship Manual contains a tried-and-true curriculum for the safest and most effective methods of teaching horsemanship. It is one of the most comprehensive manuals of horsemanship on the market today, representing four levels of horsemanship in English, Western and trail riding. Its broad-based approach also includes horse behavior and care, nutrition, health maintenance and equine first aid—all in one place.

“It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work to update this manual with an outstanding group of committed professionals,” says Julie Goodnight, CHA Spokesperson. “Our editing team consisted of equine professionals whose specialties ranged from barrel racing to dressage. Together we have added content, clarified instruction and skills where needed and refined the progression of skills to make teaching and learning horsemanship easier.”

Covering many types of riding in one manual encourages riders to cross-train and try new things. That can only produce well-rounded and knowledgeable equestrians. Beautiful illustrations by Susan Harris make learning fun and easy. The achievement-oriented format—with evaluation tools at the end of each level—ensures that each student or rider can demonstrate key skills, theory and knowledge needed to excel before moving on to learn more.

Through the years, the CHA Composite Horsemanship Manual has become a valuable asset to many riding instructors. It is used as a reference manual for 4-H Hippology and Horse Bowl, as a text book for numerous college equestrian programs, as a required reading for North American Riding for the Handicapped Association instructors and many more.
