An ETS event host has the power to compose their event using any combination of pasture, arena, or trail which best utilize the features of that event’s location. For example, if a location has three miles of beautiful trail, the host can include those 3 miles in the ETS event. Event types include: Trail Challenge – a competition that includes any combination of pasture, arena, and at least 5 miles of trail. Obstacle Course – a competition that includes any combination of pasture, arena, and up to 4 miles of trail. Recreation Ride – not a competition, casual trail riding for fun or for fund raising.

Individuals, equine organizations, private ranches, ride venues, clubs, and charities are encouraged to consider hosting an Equine Trail Sports event.

ETS provides hosts and riders with easy to use event registration and ride management tools. Riders can register for one event or an entire weekend of events with one registration. Hosts can create an event with simple on-line tools, including designing obstacles using the ETS Obstacle Library, which has over 80 obstacles that the Event Manager may use or substitute with their own obstacle creation. “As an ETS Ride Manager, I most value the Event Scoring Application, which I download onto my computer. To score an event, I simply enter the scores and click “RESULTS”. I do not need an internet connection at the ride, and I don’t need to do any calculations. It’s all done for me. When I get to an internet connection, I click “UPLOAD” and all the scores go on-line for my riders to see. So EASY!”

“Judges are valued by Equine Trail Sports, and are essential to the success of every event. ETS hosts Judges’ Clinics throughout the year to develop judges across the six ETS Regions. ETS is consistently improving our on-line teaching tools to better our judging consistency”, states Karen VanGetson.
