National Trail Ride Program

Did you know you can earn beautiful prizes by participating in the National Trail Ride Program riding your registered Missouri Fox Trotting Horse? If you love multiple-day trail riding trips, this is the program for you. The National Trail Ride program welcomes people riding all breeds of horse, but if you’re a member in good standing of the MFTHBA and are riding a registered Missouri Fox Trotting horse, you can earn credit toward your award for each ride you go on. All you need to do is ride! The prizes are a Montana Silversmith buckle or a customize designed embroidered jacket.  More information about upcoming rides and forms below.
