More information on Fox Trot America
Fox Trot America recognizes MFTHBA members and their registered Missouri Fox Trotting Horses for hours spent riding. All hours spent in the saddle may be counted toward the hour total for the horse. All participating riders and horses receive cumulative hour recognition. Beginning with the 2014 riding year, the MFTHBA started recognizing the yearly regional winners. Winning horses received a custom gift to commemorate the achievement.
In addition to the yearly and cumulative awards, owners not receiving a regional award receive a participation gift. Owners with more than one horse participating will only receive one participation gift.
