Try AHA's Frequent Rider Program

The Arabian Horse Association is committed to recognizing and rewarding the riders who work with and enjoy Arabian and Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabian horses — in all types of non-competitive riding and driving. Enter the Frequent Rider Program (FRP)!

The best part of the FRP is that the type of riding doesn’t matter as long as it is non-competitive. Whether you use an Arabian or Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabian horse to trail ride, do ranch work, participate in parades, take riding lessons, train under saddle or just ride or drive for pleasure, you can be recognized and awarded for what you love most. By accumulating the hours that you spend riding and reach the following milestones, you will receive prize incentives. Awards Recognition Concepts (ARC) is the official sponsor of the FRP program.

FRP members are also eligible to win the Year-End High Hour Trophy. Only one person can win so start logging your hours today!

Riders who would like to compete in the FRP must fill out the Incentive Program Sign-Up Form and pay a one-time $25 processing fee to join.

A program participant is defined as an individual rider, not a specific horse and rider combination. This means that as a rider, you may ride any number of horses, regardless of whether you own them or not, as long as they are all Arabians or Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabians registered with the Arabian Horse Association.

NOTE: Participation in any Arabian Horse Association program requires a current membership with the Arabian Horse Association.

The FRP will recognize any activity with a registered Arabian or Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabian horse, as long as the participant is riding/driving the horse. Some examples are:

• Trail Riding

• Parades

• Riding Lessons

• Training Under Saddle

• Ranch Work

• Demonstrations

• Pleasure Riding

• Pleasure Driving

Hours that do not count are any non-riding activities that might include:

• Groundwork

• Feeding

• Cleaning Stalls

• Tacking Up

• Trailering

• Veterinary Care

*Be sure to contact AHA if you have questions about which activities are allowable. Hours spent riding prior to enrollment in the Frequent Rider Program are not eligible, even if they were accumulated during the same calendar year.

After you have enrolled in the FRP program, you can access and update your account at any time online. Because all of the AHA Incentive Programs are online, you can update the number of hours you’ve ridden and make changes to your account whenever it is convenient for you.

As soon as you log your hours in the online FRP Log they will be permanently recorded with the Arabian Horse Association. When you reach a FRP milestone, AHA will send you the appropriate award.
