The number of people who participate in equine recreational activities has grown rapidly in the last while. The types of activities vary widely; they are no longer just the traditional trail riding and wagon trekking.
In an attempt to acknowledge the importance of the recreational drivers and riders both to the SHF and also to the equine industry, the Miles in Motion program was introduced in 2011 and continues to be the focus of recreation until it is firmly established. This is simply a program where individu-als apply to the SHF office for a log book and record the number of kms that have been driven or ridden. There are two age divisions in each of the categories. The program is based on the honour system so no one has to verify the distances travelled by the participants.
There are awards for designated distance milestones, and a major award for each division in each category at the end of the year for the greatest number of kms recorded. It is hoped that knowledge of the program will become more widespread and that many of those who participate in the recreational part of the horse industry will be recognized as being as important to the industry as are those who participate in horse shows.
Start logging your miles January 1st and submit them to SHF before the end of year December 1st
