Trails & Trail Riding Events

Please confirm dates, places, and times before traveling - Events subject to change


As a way to encourage recreational riders and recognize those participants who attend more than one trail ride a year, AQHA has introduced the Frequent Rider Card-a Passport to be presented at each ride attended. With the Passport, AQHA members can earn awards by attending numerous AQHA trail rides in one season.

Awards will be given in five-ride increments. All Ride participants who attend an event in 2005 will be entered in a random drawing where three lucky participants will receive either a grand prize of a recreation vacation for two, a new saddle provided by AQHA Corporate Partner Tex Tan or a $100 gift certificate to Quarter Horse Outfitters. The rider who attends the most trail rides during the 2005 Ride season also will receive a Tex Tan saddle.(If there's a tie for the award, it will be broken randomly.)

If you enjoy riding or driving your American Paint Horse for recreation, the APHA's Ride America Saddle Log Program is for you.

By enrolling in the Ride America program, you can strengthen your body and mind while exploring the great outdoors on the back of your favorite Paint Horse. And best of all—you earn rewards for your riding and driving achievements.

With Ride America, you set your own pace and earn rewards for simply doing what comes naturally—riding an American Paint Horse. 

APHA promotes recreational riding through the free distribution of its Guide to Recreational Riding. The 36-page trail riding guide is packed full of 
useful information, from the importance of keeping horses in good condition to 
critical safety guidelines. The booklet also contains valuable information on tack 
and equipment, saddling up, trailering a horse, and general horsemanship. For a printed copy, call APHA at 817- 834-2742, extension 773.  For an copy in pdf format, click the link below.
