The Horse Agility Challenge Association
Please note - due to the current Corona virus restrictions our 2021 qualifiers are being hosted on line by Horse Agility Uk.
Our entry level is the friendly New Comers Class, this is an easy to learn course, with basic partnership requirements.
Progression through the levels is via regional qualifying competitions.
The progressive levels are :-
The qualifying course consists of 10 obstacles. 8 of these obstacles are compulsory, and must be included, the other 2 can be chosen by the event host from the list of HACA available obstacles.
The provision of just one course each year, means that everybody entering qualifying events is competing on an equal playing field.
The HACA takes it's responsibility to protect the horses welfare very seriously. The promotion of ethical and fair horsemanship is always foremost.
We have one basic agility course, which remains the same throughout the entire year. The course is changed annually.
This allows for the obstacles that we use, to be standardised, and qualification of the different levels, to be fair and equal.
It also means regional groups holding qualifying competitions need only to collect together and provide 10 obstacles.
The requirements for the obstacles are set for each year and remain the same throughout.
The different competitive levels have different proficiency requirements, it is the skill and technical accuracy of the handler that increases through out the different levels.
Each obstacle has been carefully chosen by us for it's horsemanship merits. This means a standard for horsemanship skills can be set and must be achieved in order to progress.
