Instructor Credential Program Statement

The USHJA Instructor Credential is a voluntary education program developed by USHJA for the benefit of young professionals, members, and the general public. The credential is the sole and exclusive property of USHJA. USHJA reserves all rights to determine the credential’s specifications, requirements, and procedures and to review and amend those specifications, requirements and procedures as deemed necessary in its sole discretion.
USHJA reserves all rights to require periodic updating of its credentialed instructors’ biographical and demographic information, qualifications, continuing education, and other requirements, and it further reserves all rights to suspend or revoke credentials upon failure of the Credentialed Instructor to provide the above information.
USHJA, as the nationally recognized affiliate of the United States Equestrian Federation for the Hunter and Jumper disciplines, and in accordance with USHJA By-Laws, agrees to reciprocity with USEF, and any suspensions of USHJA Credentialed Instructors by USEF will be honored by USHJA. Therefore, an individual’s USHJA Instructor Credential will be suspended by USHJA for the same time period imposed by USEF.
USHJA reserves all rights to review any claims, statements, allegations or other information submitted to it in writing by any USHJA member or member of the general public regarding any act, conduct or behavior by a USHJA Credentialed Instructor which may be considered prejudicial to the best interests of the USHJA or the sport of equestrian and, if it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion, to forward the same to USEF for further administrative determination and action pursuant to USEF General Rules.
The material offered through the Instructor Credential is for informational purposes only. USHJA makes no representations or warranties of any nature with respect to the information contained in this program. The USHJA shall not be liable to any individual(s) for any decision made or action taken in reliance on the information obtained from its materials nor for any damages, claims or actions arising directly or indirectly from its use.
