  • Tips for MA Instructors License Process

    Hi all,

    I have finally been convinced I should try to get my instructors license in case I want to try and make horses my career, or at least a side hustle. I have applied to take the exam, and have a mentor picked out who is excited to show me the ropes.

    My exam is coming up, and I was wondering if any one had any tips on what to study in order to do well on the exam. I have the materials listed on the website, but they don’t seem to cover everything it says the exam can be on. I wish there was some sort of practice test so I could see the format, but I haven’t found any. Also, should I memorize laws and such, or is a general knowledge of everything a better route to take here?

    Im also confused on the apprenticeship part. I have to complete 60 hours of supervised instruction, and be an apprentice for 6 months. What if I complete my hours before the 6 months? Will I have to wait? When can I start counting instruction hours?

    Any additional advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I meant to post this in the Off Course section, although I’m sure this section has some great ideas too. I’m not sure how to move it, so if it shouldn’t be here can someone tell me how to move it?

      Some of these specific questions might be answerable by the entity that does the licensing.
