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.

For TREC, you can use the same tack as your horse is normally ridden in, including western and bitless. Standing martingales are not permitted however. The same tack must be used for each phase. There is also some specialised equipment for TREC. The equipment list can be found in the download section.
