     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.
