We’re introducing a new event for all trail riding enthusiasts geared toward the recreational rider, time will be devoted to improving the horse and rider partnership and their ability to work as a team to navigate different obstacles which they might experience on a trail.
Do you and your equine partner trust each other? Learn how a trail challenge, like the AQHA Trail Challenge Program, can provide a terrific venue to enhance your relationship with your equine partner. Developing this partnership through an educational experience will help make riding safe, fun and more pleasurable.
The obstacles will be elective and assistance will be provided by AQHA Recreational Advisor, Larry O. Voecks in a clinic format where you can participate or just observe. Information on Trail Challenges can be seen at aqha.com/riding.
