Calling all Thoroughbreds!

Many of us love riding Thoroughbreds because of their athleticism, mental quickness, and affordability. Now your TB can win points and recognition through the North American Series and the USDF All Breeds Program awards, sponsored by the North American Thoroughbred Society (NATBS).

“NATBS member horses are instantly on an equal footing with each other,” says Nicole Dutzi of Goldolphin Farm in Kentucky. “Thoroughbreds and their riders gain recognition for their efforts while competing nationally or locally. And each horse can be rewarded for excelling in the equine discipline that he or she is best at—whether in dressage, barrel racing, jumping, or other events.”

Whether amateur or professional, showing locally, regionally, or nationally, your horse’s achievements and progress gain recognition. Here’s how it works. Thoroughbreds registered with NATBS can win points toward North American Series Awards in dressage or a wide range of other disciplines. Horses accumulating 20 or more points win recognition at the end of the year. For the USDF All Breeds Award program, awards are presented to NATBS member Thoroughbreds, and their riders, across the full range of dressage categories based on their median score posted at year-end by USDF.

“Through NATBS’ North American Series awards, Bailey Road’s accomplishments can be recognized among those of other Thoroughbreds,” says Mary Richey. “For me and other Thoroughbred owners, it is a great experience.”

Individual Thoroughbreds can be registered with NATBS in order to be eligible for NATBS breeding, dressage, and eventing awards; to accumulate horse show points through the NATBS North American Series Awards program; and to qualify for NATBS Worldwide Trails awards.
