ST Academy Certification 

"One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself". 

 

The purpose of a certificate in Straightness Training is to both protect the horse and to guarantee that a student, Scholar, or Instructor who holds the credentials has met a minimum standard when it comes to their knowledge and skills.

Certification indicates that you meet a certain standard of competence, and it makes sure that you're doing the right things and doing things right for the benefit of your horse and - if you're a professional - your students.

Why Certification Is Important

"One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself". 

 

The most crucial factor that highlights the importance of certification is self-mastery. 

Riders can pursue certifications for expressing their ST capablities and to achieve personal goals.

Why Evaluation Is Important

Self-evaluation is key on your personal path to mastery. 

 

Discover what's working and what's not working.

Feedback helps you transform into the good horse trainer you're meant to be.  

Certification through evaluation

Measurement is the first step that leads to improvement.

In the Straightness Training Academy, we evaluate your performance of specific exercises in the five training pillars: groundwork, longeing, work in hand, riding, and liberty. 

Each of the five training pillars has been divided into five grades, where a grade represents the complexity of exercises and skills, and where grade 5 covers the most advanced exercises and skills.

To evaluate your ability at a certain grade in a certain training pillar, you can submit a video with a set of pre-defined exercises, called a Touchstone

You can submit one Touchstone at a time, and when you pass this Touchstone, you'll receive a Touchstone Certificate

When you pass all five Touchstones in a certain grade, you will be awarded a Grade Certificate.

In total, 25 Touchstones Certificates and 5 Grade Certificates can be obtained.
