The most helpful competition is about challenging yourself to exceed your personal best.
Ride For Success offers equestrians the chance to set their own targets by participating in a challenge based on a predetermined number of hours within a two-month period.
This program caters to all types of riders, whether it’s to stay motivated during a horse’s lameness, prepare for a horse show, achieve personal bests in training, or increase physical activity as a non-horse owner.
The program’s success is marked by the community’s achievements and the prizes won. No matter where you are, you will have a support network to reach out to, and it only requires an open space in your mind to set a goal, believe in yourself, and log your hours. Success through effort is guaranteed!
Each two-month challenge has it’s own unique ribbon. By keeping a riding or workout log, you can directly achieve your personal goals and earn a 24″ Champion rosette designed to match the theme of your challenge.
Ascend through the bronze, silver, and gold tiers and qualify for prizes from our sponsors. If you are part of a riding academy, your trainer can also be recognized for having the most participants from their farm in each challenge. Prizes for each challenge will be updated continually on social media.
Farms and businesses can also sponsor a challenge and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the platform of their choice. Share your success and receive recognition and support from the equestrian community through our social media networks!
