Silent Auction Donations Needed at the 2019 Certified Horsemanship Association’s International Conference to Support CHA Scholarship

In order to raise money for the CHA Scholarship Fund, the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) holds a silent auction at the CHA International Conference every year. The CHA Scholarship Fund helps deserving individuals who wish to further their professional career by attending a CHA Certification Clinic to obtain an official certification from the largest certifying body of riding instructors and facility managers in North America. This fund helps CHA achieve its core mission of certifying professionals within the horse industry. By donating, companies get to reach attendees of the conference, which includes equine facility managers and staff, riding instructors, equestrian camp staff, university faculty, equine industry professionals, and horse enthusiasts.

This year’s conference will be October 24-27 at Houghton College in Houghton, NY, about an hour from Buffalo. The silent auction will be open with items on display starting at 10 am Thursday in Schaller Hall, and conference attendees will be able to bid until Friday at 7 pm right before the awards banquet starts.

All donors will be promoted in the conference program, on the CHA website, and on signage at the event. Donations made after July 31 will be accepted, but will not be able to be published in the program or on signage.

CHA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax exempt organization, which makes silent auction donations tax deductible as charitable contributions. If you wish to donate, please fill out the Silent Auction Pledge form no later than July 31, 2019. Complete instructions, including where to ship items, are on the form.

For any business wishing to have a larger presence at the CHA International Conference, vendor space, sponsorships, and program advertising are still available. For more information on becoming a vendor or sponsor, please visit For more information on advertising, please visit
