Club Officers complete the required training
Top tips for youth protection training:

To access the Youth Protection Training Module, go to and sign in using your own user name and password. If you do not remember your sign in information you can contact for assistance.

  • Please do not take the training while signed in under someone else’s name as you will not receive credit yourself and will have to re-take the training.
  • Do not log in as your club, center or region as you will receive an error message.
Under the "Safety” tab found on the menu bar of the website, from the drop down, click on "Youth Protection." Then click on "Youth Protection Training" in the beige rectangle near the top of the page.

Completing the entire module of three sections takes approximately 30 minutes. You may do one section and later complete the remaining sections or do all three sections in one sitting.

Top tips for your background check: Background checks with incorrectly entered names do not produce any results, thus the background check must be submitted and paid for again. Tips to avoid this error:
  • Please enter your legal name as printed on your Social Security card.
  • Be certain to enter your last and first name in the appropriate boxes.
  • If you have a Junior, Senior or numerals after your last name, please do not enter those in the last name field. Please indicate those along with other names you may be using in the box titled "Notes."
Thank you for completing your training!

10 training tips from Will Coleman
Practical Horseman
“A happy horse will always be more successful than an unhappy one,” Olympic eventer Will Coleman said to the assembled riders, whose mounts ranged from an off-the-track thoroughbred and a homebred warmblood-cross to a PMU rescue horse and a shetland pony. “If you can get to a point where you feel like you give the horse a reason to come out and work for you every day, you’re always going to have a better chance of getting not only a better performance but a much more enjoyable and fulfilling performance.”

Improve rideability for confident courses
Practical Horseman
In most riding disciplines, rideability accounts for about 50 percent of success. A rideable horse responds to your aids promptly and reliably, just the way the brakes, accelerator and steering work in a high-performance car. He can slow down and accelerate rapidly and negotiate sharp turns at speed without drifting off track.
