FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — MAR. 28, 2013 — With the proliferation of ACTHA events nationwide, the American Competitive Trail Horse Association is showing their members some love and confidence.
"It's a pretty simple guarantee," says Robin Tilghman, Director of National Sales. "ANY MEMBER OF ACTHA, NEW OR OLD, THAT IS NOT ABLE TO ATTEND AT LEAST 2 EVENTS DURING THEIR MEMBERSHIP YEAR CAN GET THEIR MEMBERSHIP RENEWED AT NO CHARGE." It doesn't matter what the reason is. ACTHA realizes things happen: Horses get sick, people get sick, weather is unpredictable and any number of events can happen that can keep a member from participating as often as they’d like."
"It's the right thing to do and I think it exemplifies the dedication of ACTHA to our loyal members, current and future," states Ann Kinsey, ACTHA's new Director of Operations. "Putting our members needs first we know will pay off down the road".
After having more than 1,000 rides, ACTHA prepares for its fifth year of offering Competitive Trail Challenges throughout the USA. The team is confident the next 12 months will bring more rides to more places than ever before. They bolster this statement with signed agreements with the Unwanted Horse Coalition and Horses 4 Heroes. Together these two organizations have over a thousand registered rescues and locations hoping for an ACTHA event to help them with their fiscal needs. According to Ms. Kinsey, "We most likely will not be able to accommodate all of them over the next 12 months but we're sure going to help as many as we can. These new locations, along with our historical growth from repeatand new rides virtually assure that all ACTHA members will find numerous opportunities to participate throughout the year. But if they can’t make at least two rides, they can get a free renewal. Pretty straight forward."
"It’s going to be a record year for the horses we serve, our riders, our hosts and our dozens of sponsors, of that you can be sure, "says Carrie Scrima, ACTHA Co-Founder.
