The North American Trail Ride Conference (NATRC) is offering free 2016 memberships to people who have never been NATRC members.
“We are a distance competitive trail ride organization that values conditioned, sound, trail savvy horses that are a pleasure to ride," said executive administrator Laurie DiNatale. "We value light and balanced riding and encourage the good care of horses over the distance and in camp. We want to share that with people.”
As a nonprofit educational and distance competitive-trail-ride-sanctioning organization, NATRC education takes on many forms. One of these is the direct feedback to competitors of scores and comments on their veterinary and horsemanship scorecards, which each rider receives at the close of a ride competition.
Other resources include clinics, a new competitor section on the website, mentoring new competitors, informative articles in regional and national newsletters, an introductory video, social media, and the soon to be published second edition of the NATRC Rider’s Manual, A Complete Guide to Competitive Trail Riding.
