Lots of things happening the world of OTTBs. Not only did the applications for the 2017 Retired Racehorse Makeover open up (New Trainer has two entries for the upcoming year and they are cute!), but The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program also announced a new incentive for recreational riders.
Now I am not, and most of my readers are not, strictly recreational riders but this new award is about riding outside of the arena on trails (including trail or endurance competitions). And what is one thing enters do a lot of? Legging up our horses on trail rides!
Check out the new program here. Hours start counting on January 1,2017. To get the prizes you need to submit your hours log and a picture of you and/or your horse on one of the rides.
There’s no way I’ll get to the 10,000 hours but why not see where I can get? One of my goals for this year was to spend more time on the trails and this is the perfect little incentive to do so.
