APHA’s HorseIQ earns 2017 American Business Award

HorseIQ is changing the equine education game, and it’s not just horsemen who are taking note. The American Business Association honored the interactive learning system with a Silver Stevie® Award in the Technical Innovation of the Year category—Organizations With Up to 100 Employees.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.

“We’re glad to know that others see this initiative for what it is—a creative solution to supporting the best judges, trainers and exhibitors in the equine community,” APHA Executive Director Billy Smith said.

Bringing the APHA rule book to life with interactive videos, explanations from top judges and even judge-it-yourself modules, HorseIQ makes learning easy and fun. Unlike DVDs or books, the program allows for updates and changes as horse competition continues to evolve. Whether you’re aiming to improve your trail score or coaching a horse judging team, HorseIQ is a powerful tool to add to your arsenal. Learn more about the program at aphahorseiq.com.

“We’re so proud the APHA was honored for their innovation! They are the first professional horse association to offer judge and show training using web-based technology,” Becky Sterling, president of CD2 Learning, said. “This innovative approach will better establish a continuity of standards as well as an increased knowledge base and communication across the industry as a whole. They are setting a new standard for professional associations developing online learning and professional development products.”
