Do I Want to get Serious?

ARIA or the American Riding Instructors Association

  • Through the ARIA I may receive a certificate from the American Riding Instructor Certification Program (ARICP), which will open up many more opportunities
  • This proves I’m committed, dedicated, and educated
  • Will provide possible insurance discounts
  • It’s not a certificate that you buy, it is something you have to earn through evaluation
  • The ARICP is a national credential
  • It puts me in a directory to be discovered by students and in a quarterly magazine, Riding Instructor; therefore, improving advertisement

what needs to be known
What Needs to be Known?
  • I need to be aware of the investments included in the business
        • May include horses, hay, facilities, tack, etc.
  • I need to know what money needs to be spent on and when it needs to be spent
    • When do horses need shod or trimmed, when do you need to buy more hay, etc.
  • A common knowledge of horses, safety, and correct procedures when around them.
  • Lesson plans, availability, limitations, and your own experience level
  • What discipline I want to teach and am capable of teaching

What am I Getting Myself Into?
  • I am expected to know how to ride and handle different situations on horseback
  • I should know how to answer questions the students may have
  • The students should benefit and learn from what I have taught them
  • I need to realize that even domesticated horses are completely unpredictable
  • I should know how to deal with emergencies involving both students and horses
  • I am expected to be capable of helping and teaching students of all levels
  • I should be prepared and aware of what I will be teaching that day
  • It’s very necessary for me to listen to what the student has to say and know when he/she is or isn’t ready for something

rewards versus drawbacks
Rewards Versus Drawbacks

Drawbacks include:

  • Risking my health and well being because horses are a very unpredictable and dangerous animal
  • It takes real dedication and I will never stop learning myself because can never know everything there is to know
  • Everything in the “horse world” is expensive!!!!

Rewards include:

  • Flexibility of the job
  • I can create my own schedule
  • There are no programs or specific levels of education required
  • With good business I will make great money
  • Watching your students succeed
