Arabian Recreational Riding Program


The Arabian Recreational Riding Program (ARRP) is an online program that rewards riders for every hour they spend riding (or driving) their horse. Participants can submit entries for trail rides, ranch work, parades, riding lessons, local open shows (Saddle Club, 4-H, etc.) or just pleasure riding.



Achievement Awards


Both you and your horse can earn recognition through the AHA Achievement Awards programs. Once you sign up, amateur rider and horse points are tracked automatically throughout the year every time you compete in AHA shows/rides and some open events.


  • Amateur Achievement Awards - assigns points to individual riders, handlers and drivers. Riders don't have to own the horse they compete with since these program tracks riders only.
  • Achievement Awards - assigns points to individual horse and have permanent symbols added to their name, signifying honor and prestige. There are six different levels that could leave your horse a legacy.


Recognition Awards


  • Ambassador Award - for outstanding achievement in representing the Arabian Horse community to the general public. The horse must have achieved a unique accomplishment that showcases the breed.
  • Open Competition Award - for outstanding achievement in representing the Arabian Horse community in areas of Open Competition and the horse must have received acknowledgement at the higher levels of competition and/or shown progressive and consistent accomplishment within a discipline.
  • Distance Horse of the Year - an award that recognizes the significant accomplishment of an Arabian, Half-Arabian or Anglo-Arabian Horse in distance sports.
