TVCC Booster Horse Program
It is the goal of TVCC Horse Training program to certify students through TQA (Training Quality Assurance) who wish to enter the work force to train and sale horses to the public. TQA videos and score sheets help to equip students to pass the TQA Industry Colt Starting Test through meeting the TQA Quality Standards at the end of two months training. At the bottom of this page, you can watch the TQA videos going through groundwork to phase 4 to see the training program that your horse will be going through.
Training Quality Assurance: TQA is a 501 (C)3 non-profit organization that works with experts in the equine and ranching industry to set industry quality standards and certifications for training and selling horses to the public as well as working on ranches and feedlots where horsemanship, stockmanship and roping skills are required.
The text below (red font) was taken from the TQA website and outlines the TQA Industry Quality Standards and Guidelines for training horses for the public.
