Make more informed decisions

Horse Authority helps you protect whatever is most precious to you with nationally accredited background checks. 

Today, make more informed decisions about potential horse-related candidates while saving time and money. Background checks offer a higher level of consistency, protection, and consumer confidence compared to other due diligence methods.

No one ever thinks they’ll become a victim until it’s too late.


Additionally, this proven background screening solution is ideal for confirming an individual’s identity, as well as:

the pre-employment vetting of candidates for horse-related jobs,

› screening potential horse adopters while generating donations for your horse rescue (and pet shelters/rescues),

› the due diligence of horse-related volunteers when child equestrians or money are involved,

and finally, the vetting of horse association “professional horsemen” or “certified” horseback riding instructors.


Mitigating risk is quick, easy, and only $35.

Similarly, enjoy flexible submission options both online or off.

Self-Background Checks

Uncertain about the US Equestrian background check? Or, similarly, an upcoming horse job interview?

Stress no more! Horse Authority has you covered with self-background checks.

Most notably, this proactive approach to managing your professional reputation allows you to check your record for accuracy. Learn what your background check reveals before it counts. 


The Federal Trade Commission reports as of March 2017 that identity theft is the third largest consumer complaint in the nation. Michigan, Florida, and Delaware are the top three states with identity theft complaints.


In case of an error, due to identity theft or a similar issue, self-background checks allow you the opportunity to correct your official record.

Protect your hard-earned professional reputation. In the end, you only get one!
