I am not sure if you have to be certified. I think it would all depend on the type of riding you plan to teach. I would love to find someone like you in my area. I am just a down to earth kind of person, I don't feel comfortable around people who are snobs, or put on airs, like some pro trainers might be. There is a lady I know that gives lessons, down where I grew up. She just ran ads, put signs out on the road, at feed stores, etc., before long, she had a booming business. She was sweet, funny, very down to earth. i attended a small local show where a lot of her students were riding, they all did great, and everyone had a blast. I read about these professionals who yell at their students, belittle them and their horses, no way could I deal with that. Not saying that all pro's are like that, though. Good luck!
