WELCOME TO OUR 11TH YEAR 2017!
For 2017 ATTA will be trying a new format. Members must ride in five ATTA approved trail trials to qualify for year end finals and awards. ATTA will continue to award top ten awards in several categories.
Members may not qualify the same horse for finals and awards in more than one category for the year. But members can purchase a separate membership for a second different horse.
Rules: IN HAND TRAIL TRIAL CLASSES WILL NOT BE APPROVED FOR ATTA YEAR END POINTS IN 2017.
EACH INDIVIDUAL RIDE SETS ITS OWN RULES , DETERMINES THE OBSTACLES AND
OVERSEES JUDGING STANDARDS. Contact individual ride secretaries for rules and information. Please see EVENTS page for list of ride contacts. Soon ATTA wil post some sample rule sets on the forms page of this website Spring 2015. Please scroll down for more recent (2012) information.

ATTA Trail Trials can also be approved for points by other associations. So a rider can accumulate points
in more than one association at the same time. It is very common for the AQHA (American Quarter Horse Assoc.) and the NQHA (Nevada Quarter Horse Assoc.) to sanction rides that are ATTA approved. Many CSHA (California State Horsemen's Assoc) trail trials are also ATTA approved.
The Nevada Quarter Horse Assoc. NQHA has announced that " their 2012 Trail Ride Awards Program has changed slightly!" Their program will now be leveled: Novice, Youth, and Advanced. For every NQHA approved ride you will recieve points and for every NQHA sanctioned trail trial (and many ATTA rides also have NQHA approval) you will recieve points based upon your placing. At the end of the year NQHA will give awards Champion through 5th. Check events page for trail trial and ride listings including the sanctions for each ride.
ATTA GIVES YEAR END AWARDS TO TOP TEN RIDERS IN EACH CATEGORY. ALL ATTA RIDERS ALSO RECEIVE RECOGNITION AND PRIZES.
