Make decisions while saving time, money

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

Make informed decisions about 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. This proven solution offers flexible submission options both online or off.

Additionally, background checks are ideal for confirming candidates’ identities, 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 young equestrians or money are involved,

and vetting of horse associations’ “professional horsemen” or “certified” horseback riding instructors, etc.


Mitigating risk requires the negligible investment of only $35


Exclusive Access

Horse Authority provides the equine industry exclusive access to the United States Olympic Committee’s (USOC) preferred background screening provider.

As a result, USOC’s National Governing Body US Equestrian (USEF) uses the same company for its SafeSport background checks.



Self-Background Checks

Uncertain about US Equestrian’s background check or an upcoming horse job interview?

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

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, a self-background check affords you the opportunity to correct your official record.

Protect your hard-earned professional reputation. You only get one!
