Training Quality Assurance Industry Standards For "Starting a Horse"

Training Quality Assurance (TQA) is a source of information to U.S. horse owners of how accepted scientific knowledge can be used to educate horse owners on the "starting process" and setting a solid foundation on a horse.  TQA guidelines are designed to help both the producer (horse trainer) and the consumer (horse trainer’s client).  In the same way the foundation of a house determines the safety and security of the future building, the “starting process” (First 2 Months) on a young horse should help to determine the safety and security of the future equine partner.  TQA is working with experts in the industry to set quality standards to help the consumer determine who is truly qualified to “start” their horse. To help set industry standards and guidelines for qualification the welding industry has the American Welding Society, the automotive industry has the Automotive Service Excellence and Riding Instructors have the Certified Horsemanship Association.  It is the goal and mission of Training Quality Assurance to help set standards and guidelines for training and selling horses to the public.
