Larry Langer Sends a Message to USHJA Zone 10 About

Written by: Carrie Wirth
Client: Bernie Traurig and
Release Date: 2012-09-30

At we are very proud of the letter Larry Langer sent to in the Zone 10 Newsletter in September. We wanted to share it with you.

From Zone 10 Jumpers September 2012 E-News

Chairman’s Corner: Larry Langer

As a long time professional horseman and licensed official, I credit much of my success to my formal education; I hold degrees in engineering and business administration. In the equestrian world, there is no substitute for experience and I have learned a great deal about horses in the "school of hard knocks." However, my hands-on equestrian experience has definitely been enhanced by studying and learning in a more formal way. For many years, I have been an advocate of further education, and I seek training and learning opportunities whenever and wherever I can. In fact, those who work with me know that if there is a class or seminar they want to take, I never hesitate to support them in the endeavor.

As a result, I am very pleased that the USHJA is partnering with Bernie Traurig’s to provide the educational content online for the Trainer Certification Program. Whether you are just starting out as a professional or you have been teaching and training for decades, you can always learn something new. I encourage you to get certified and to check out by logging on.

When Bernie first approached me about his website plans, I was very excited about the idea. There were many obstacles and challenges to overcome during Bernie's effort to provide education for the equestrian community. I am sure he had no idea what a “green screen” was, let alone all of the other technical issues involved. As a very successful horseman, Bernie used his boundless passion to tackle a project for which he had little knowledge and less technical skill. The result is, and I encourage all of you to check out this excellent resource. is not just for professionals, anyone at any level can benefit from the material offered on the site. Keep learning and challenging yourself and you will only be better for it.


Larry Langer

Chairman, Zone 10 Jumper Committee
