Spring is a great time to log your trail hours for the TRRIP and horse show season is kicking into gear as well, including over 1,200 horse shows offering T.I.P. Awards in 2018.
Happy Spring and
Go Thoroughbreds!

?????         FAQ of the Month         ?????

Do I have to win a T.I.P. class or division to qualify for the Championships? Do I have to participate in a T.I.P. Division?
Nope! To qualify for the 2018 Championships, a Thoroughbred must participate in a show offering T.I.P. high point awards, classes or divisions in the applicable discipline beginning August 1, 2017 through July 31, 2018. Horses can be shown in any Hunter, Jumper, Western or English Pleasure classes or divisions or any Dressage or Western Dressage classes at the show offering T.I.P. awards. Horses shown at a horse trial or combined test may also qualify for the Championships through their show jumping or dressage phase (as applicable). For more information, visit and click on Championships.
