To showcase Thoroughbreds that are not competing in shows but are still successful in a second career as recreational mounts, The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program (TIP) has announced the Thoroughbred Recreational Riding Incentive Program.

The program is designed for Thoroughbred owners who spend most of their time outside of the show ring, whether on trails (including competitive trail rides), endurance rides, or even driving.

“Many off-track Thoroughbreds and owners are more suited to recreational riding than to showing,” said Kristin Leshney, T.I.P. coordinator. “The Thoroughbred Recreational Riding Incentive Program enables recreational riders to be rewarded for choosing Thoroughbreds.”

Multiple awards are offered depending on the number of hours spent riding or driving, ranging from a TIP patch for 25 hours to a TIP fleece jacket for 10,000 hours. To receive awards, riders must record their riding time in one-hour increments, rounding down to the whole hour. Arena riding, lessons, and show hours are not eligible for awards
