Re: [RC] [RC] Rules for competitive trail rides - Cindy - Sharon Levasseur

No horsemanship judging in ECTRA (Eastern Competitive Trail Riding Association) either ... www.ectra.org
-Sharon L. in Maine

Quoting Sharon Hahn <sharon.hahn@xxxxxxx>:

Cindy Stafford asked where she can find rules for competitive trail
rides.  It would depend on the sanctioning body.  Some competitive rides
are NATRC.  In the Upper Midwest where I live, they are generally
sanctioned by UMECRA, which operates under completely different rules
from NATRC.  An AHA ride will be different still.  So find out which
organization sanctions the competitive rides in your area, and then check
that organization's website or ask a ride manager where you can find the
rules.  Another good way to learn is to volunteer at a ride as a vet
secretary so you learn how to fill out the scoresheets and what all the
scores mean.

My understanding is that NATRC has a horsemanship component to judging,
while UMECRA and AHA rides score only on the physical toll the ride takes
on your horse (scoring based on time, pulse, respiration, soreness,
galls, etc.).
