If you’re up for a challenge this is your division.
Trainers and Senior Judges are mandatory Horseman Division Riders. All riders have the same trail at the same speed. This competitive trail ride level is comparable to NATRC CP (Competitive Pleasure) or Open.
NOTE: The Rider’s division is determined by the Rider’s skill not the horse’s skill. Trainers and Senior Judges are mandatory Horseman Division Riders no matter the horse’s skill level.
