Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) is a membership organization, operating internationally, whose purpose is to advance excellence in horsemanship safety and education for the entire horse industry. The Horse Hands program and facility has been accredited by the CHA since 2009, and is also a host site for various CHA certified clinics. This fall we are hosting a Driving Instructor and Driver Certification Clinic (DIDC) at the Zoo.
