We have added the American Saddlebred Registry to the Distance Horse National Championships. This organization will be joining AHA and the returning partners, the Appaloosa Horse Club, the Paso Fino Horse Association, the Performance Shagya-Arabian Registry, the American Morgan Horse Association, and the Akhal-Teke Association of America in 2019!

 

Don’t forget along with our many National Championship Rides we also offer an Open AHA recognized Competitive Trail Ride and several Open Limited Distance, 50 Mile, and 100 Mile rides. This year all endurance Open Rides will be sanctioned by the Arabian Horse Association (AHA), the American Endurance Ride Conference (AERC.) The Distance Horse National Championships have also added the LD Challenge to the event which is for the same rider/horse combination entered in the all three Open Limited Distance Rides; rules and the point schedule can be found under the Exhibitor information tab. Remember that all Open Rides are open to all breeds and require no qualifications or memberships. See you in Oklahoma!
