Description: An introduction to the sport from start to finish, step by step, including timely tips and helpful hints.
In this section of pages, I will introduce the curious to the sport of competitive trail riding. Since my experience is with NATRC, the pages will deal with the specifics of that organization. NATRC is the North American Trail Ride Conference. Started in 1961, NATRC now has sanctioned rides from Alaska and Canada, through out the USA; and most recently, in Okinawa. NATRC has developed a philosophy of competitive trail riding with uniform judging being of paramount importance. Uniformity of rules aids management in conducting rides, and makes it easier for judges to evaluate each horse on a more objective basis. It does not require expensive tack, clothes, or a registered and professionally trained horse. All that is required is a fit and mannerly horse and rider that enjoy trail riding.
