A Time of Connection

The Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) Regional Conference is a great time for personal growth and learning from professionals in their various careers and trades in the horsemanship world. Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center happily hosted this year’s conference in March.

Not only is knowledge and information shared during the weekend, but it is filled opportunities to make new connections and friendships with people you may not meet otherwise.

I was blessed to experience all these things throughout the weekend. I also got to reconnect with the man who introduced me to the horse world—Greg Gill, the former Horsemanship Director at Warm Beach Horsemanship, who first taught me how to ride a horse over a decade ago.

Greg taught me how to ride a horse, valuable life skills that I still use, and showed me how God works with us and through us by using horses. Greg has since gone on to become a successful Farrier along with being a husband and father, and is still involved with CHA as a Master Instructor.

During the CHA Conference, which was a busy weekend for both of us, we managed to find time to go grab coffee and catch up on what is going on in our lives.

On the last day of the Conference, I joined his class on schooling horses. It was a wonderful experience being able to ride in his class once again while learning some great tools to use when schooling in the future.

At the conclusion of the weekend, when everyone said their goodbyes and went back to their own lives, I realized what truly made the CHA Conference a meaningful and worthwhile experience is not only the ability to glean some new horse knowledge, but also the opportunity to spend a weekend in fellowship with dozens of people who all share the same passion for horses.

Hold on Tight!

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Hebrews 10:23-25 NLT Have you ever been in a situation where someone told you to hold on tight? ...
