If you are new to TREC, there are many ways to get started. Contact your local group or visit our calendar for details of upcoming events. You do not need to be a member to take part, temporary membership is available for each event.

All levels of horse and rider can take part in TREC. For competition, horse must be four years old or over. To compete as an individual riders must be aged 16 or over.
