ESQHA Trail Riding Program

The purpose of the ESQHA Trail Riding Program is to recognize ESQHA members who use their Quarter Horses for trail riding.

  1. Horse must be a registered Quarter Horse.
  2. Ages will be computed as of January 1 of the qualifying year.
  3. Open to all ESQHA members. ESQHYA membership alone does not qualify.
  4. Hours are kept on individual rider, not horse/rider team. All hours logged from 11/1 of previous year to 10/31 of current year will count towards the Year End Award. However, all hours logged will count towards continuum awards.
  5. Only ESQHA log sheets will be accepted.
  6. Log sheets must be sent to: Kathy Stoll, 2323 Whitaker Rd, Forestville, New York 14062 and must be postmarked no later than 10/31 of the qualifying year for Year End Awards.
