We Currently Offers 2 Types Of Events.

Competitive Trail Challenge (CTC)

The CTC is a casual trail ride competition that is 10-13 kilometers long with judged obstacles (mostly natural) along the way. Each
obstacle has its own judge. It is not a speed, timed or extreme event. You are encouraged to ride with your group, family, or friends.
When you come to the obstacle & judge, you perform the obstacle one at a time. The trail rides usually take from 2-3 hours.  Many of
the rides have clinics or information sessions on a number of equine related topics as well.

ABCTHA Obstacle Challenge (AOC)

The AOC is held in an arena (indoor or outdoor) or field with 8 ABCTHA obstacles and 2 judges.  Riders can bring multiple horses.   
Most events include mounted games or other activities.

All obstacles at these events are ABCTHA approved obstacles.  You will be given a sheet describing all the obstacles for your event
with detailed instructions on how each division should perform the obstacle and the judging criteria.
