I write this month's message with a bit of disbelief - how is it almost the end of 2017! What a great year it has been for T.I.P., starting with the launch of the Thoroughbred Recreational Riding Incentive Program, to a record number of horse shows offering T.I.P. awards in 2017, to the inaugural T.I.P. Championships. And we're not done yet - it's Performance Award time! I hope you enjoy the information in this month's newsletter and that you have a great holiday season!

Performance Awards Info

What Horse Shows Are Included in the Performance Awards?

Thoroughbreds accumulate points at all horse shows, horse trials, and other horse events. Horse shows do not have to offer T.I.P. awards to be included in the Performance Awards. The Performance Awards are completely self-reported by the Thoroughbred’s owner or rider. This includes reporting of results from horse shows offering T.I.P. show divisions, classes or awards – the horse shows do not report Performance Award results to T.I.P. Please note, beginning in 2017 All Thoroughbred Shows should be included with open shows for purposes of the Performance Awards. 

What are the Performance Award Categories & Divisions?

There are twelve categories and a lot of divisions! A full list can be found on the website. Categories are Dressage, English Pleasure, Equitation, Eventing/CT, General, Halter, Hunter, Jumper, Western and three TCA Green OTTB categories for horses that raced in the past two years.There are also Junior Rider awards, select state-bred or residing awards (more on that below) and an award for horses adopted from the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance. 


State Bred or Residing Awards 

Awards based on the horse’s state bred or state of residence may be available if sponsored by the state breeders’ organization or another organization. Awards will be calculated based on all points for eligible horses unless otherwise requested by the sponsor. In 2017 the following awards will be offered as of November 21, 2017:

Alberta Bred sponsored by CTHS Alberta Division
California Bred sponsored by California Thoroughbred Breeders Association
Kentucky Residing sponsored by Kentucky Horse Council

The next great holiday gifts - Microchips???

Is a microchip on your horse's holiday gift list this year? The Jockey Club offers microchips for $15 each (plus tax in New York and Kentucky). AND Reporting of the microchip number for Thoroughbreds to The Jockey Club is included with the cost of the microchip. Microchips may be helpful in establishing identity of Thoroughbreds involved in horse shows and in the event a horse is lost or stolen. Additionally, as of Dec. 1, 2017, US Equestrian will require a microchip for classes that require USHJA horse registration.

If you wish to pay by check, use the Order Form below. If you wish to pay by credit card, order online using
