ACTHA’s New Trail Challenge takes Events to the Arena to Accommodate Winter Weather
ACTHA Obstacle Challenges consist of eight ACTHA-approved obstacles. Riders have the option of entering various divisions which suit their skills and they will be competing for ribbons and prizes, just like ACTHA’s original format, the Competitive Trail Challenge (CTC). Unlike CTCs, which are usually between 6 to 8 miles, the obstacles of an AOC will be set up in one location in an arena or field, and riders will complete all of these obstacles consecutively, within an 8 minute time period. Riders will also have the option of being able to compete on multiple horses.
Hosting ACTHA CTCs and AOCs has proven to be a powerful fund raising tool for many nonprofits across the nation. Approximately 70% of ACTHA’s events are hosted by nonprofit organizations. In addition to ride proceeds, ACTHA donates an additional $3 per rider from every Competitive Trail Challenge and ACTHA Obstacle Challenge, to a charity selected by the Ride Host. This can be any local equine nonprofit of their choosing.
