AQHA Trail Challenge

An AQHA Trail Challenge is a judged course that tests a horse and rider’s ability to work as a team, navigating through natural obstacles they might experience on a trail ride. There are generally 6 to 16 obstacles in any given trail challenge. Each horse-and-rider team starts out with a score of 70, and then gains or loses points depending on their ability to navigate the course. In each division, the horse and rider with the highest overall value is declared the trail challenge winner.  AQHA offers an all-breed division, as well as an American Quarter Horse division at every challenge.  Upcoming events include:

Skull Valley, AZ – July 15-17

Kiowa, CO – July 23-24

Hancock, ME – August 21
