WELCOME TO THE THURMONT RIDING CLUB
The By-Laws of the Thurmont Riding Club state that the club's purpose is "to bring together all those persons who desire good fellowship and have a love for horses..."
If you share this love for horses, whether an owner or not, the Thurmont Riding Club invites you to become a member. We are a family oriented Club with activities designed each year to meet the interests of our members
Our Old Fashioned Horse Shows, Hunter/Jumper Shows and Trail Challenges
are all pointed shows, making you eligible for year end awards... as long as you are a TRC member in good standing and met the requirements below
IMPORTANT RULES FOR YEAR END AWARDS
Year End Awards in three different show series.
You must participate in at least 4 Old Fashioned Shows - 3 Hunter/Jumper shows - 4 Trail Challenges to receive year end awards in that show series.
Year End Point ties will be broken at the discretion of the board.
Points are awarded to:
Horse and Rider Team in the Trail Challenges
Rider only in the Old Fashioned Show Series
Rider only in the Equitation Division of Hunter/Jumper Shows
Horse only in the Hunter & Jumper Divisions of Hunter/Jumper Shows
"Rider only" points will take only the highest placing per class, if more than one horse is shown per class.
You will be able to "drop" your lowest scoring show in each series.
We do require that you put in a minimum of 4 hours volunteer service to be eligible for year end awards.
If you cannot perform your volunteer hours, you may do a buyout of $50.
Young riders may choose to "move up" to an older division at the start of the show season, but if they move back to their age division the points WILL NOT transfer.
Ribbons will be awarded UPON REQUEST to sixth place at all shows
