TBEA Recreational Riding Incentive Program
Beginning January 1, 2019 (printable version)
About the Program
Milestones and Prize List
TBEA is excited to announce the initiation of our new recreational riding incentive program. As a club, we strive to celebrate the versatility of the thoroughbred horse. With this new format we hope to attract new members and encourage existing members to get more involved. Please continue to send in your trail hours as you always have, using the TBEA points submission form. There is no time limit to turn trail hours in and they are lifetime hours moving forward. This means that any hours prior to January 1, 2019 will not count towards the new program. Lastly, while we encourage riding outdoors and on your property or your neighbor’s property, we will only be accepting 25 hours per year from situations like these. This rule will be policed by self reporting. When you send in your hours please include the location where you did your trail ride and a picture of your horse on the trails. You are more than welcome to e-mail the pictures separate or attached to your forms, just make sure to include date and number of hours/location with the pictures.
Note that you will receive a patch for each milestone completed on top of the listed prize! After you reach the 1,500 hours level prizes are TBD at 500 hour increments and you will receive a patch for each additional 250 hours on the trail! Note that the new requirements for completing eligible trail hours have resulted in each of these levels being a little bit more rigorous, we will update the milestones and prize list as necessary and provide documentation if this happens! Prizes will be awarded at the TBEA awards ceremony banquet for the year in which the milestone was reached. In the event one of the prizes at a milestone is unavailable at time of completion, an equivalent prize will be chosen by the awards organizer for that year.
