Endorsed Programs

Recognizing Relationship-Based Horsemanship dedication and talent

Sandy Ruiter

One of the goals of the IHA is to facilitate collaboration among Relationship-Based horsemen who share our values as an organization. We want to highlight those horsemen who are already running successful, high-quality programs, have complimentary customer reviews, and are a positive influence in the horse industry. We define a program as a recorded set of guidelines or methods for training, riding, interacting with, or caring for horses.

Why become endorsed?

IHA endorsement not only gives programs recognition for their achievements, but also provides exposure on our website and social media platforms at no cost.  In return, Endorsed Programs agree to publicly show their support for the IHA in the form of a brief endorsement video, placement of our logo on their website, and by posting regularly to social media in promotion of the IHA.  

The IHA is open to suggestions from Endorsees for other ways in which we could help promote their program. Together, we will form a community that celebrates the humane training of horses and increases the level of horsemanship worldwide.

“Basic Horsemanship is at the heart of everything you do with
your horse. The successes and challenges you experience are a
result of the quality of the relationship and communication you
have with your horse. Horsemanship is not something you move
beyond ― you have to take it with you as you progress and
continue to deepen your skills in it.”
