IAPF Hunter Jumper Credential

Continue the Journey!

In 2016, the IAPF introduced a new level of Continuing Education which we refer to as Credentialing.  Over 300 of our members have completed the first step Foundation Credentialing.  We have now unveiled the second step Discipline or Specialty Credentialing.  We have identified Hunters and Jumpers as our first discipline credential.  Through this Journey you'll continue to demonstrate to horse owners, trainers, veterinarians, and others in the horse industry your personal commitment to your profession!  Each level of the Discipline Credential requires the successful completion of the Foundation Credential.

As additional discipline credentials are introduced, farriers and veterinarians will have the choice to add (or stack) the next discipline credential or just focus on one specific Discipline or Specialty Credential.

Let's Begin ....


There are 3 levels or opportunities to become engaged with the Hunter Jumper Credential:
