The Pyramid Society’s New Riders UP Recognition Program is now open for enrollment! The program is designed to reward riders throughout North America and abroad with prizes and recognition for spending non-competitive hours in the saddle with their Egyptian Arabian horses. This program offers complimentary enrollment for all eligible horses with no Pyramid Society membership requirements.
“This program is a direct result of the feedback we’ve received from the Egyptian Arabian horse community. The Performance Horse Award program has been a great success with those participating in open competition, and so we have taken this next step to recognize and reward those riders who are either preparing to compete or simply just enjoy riding their horses for pleasure. We invite and encourage your participation and sponsorship to help assure the continued growth of this valuable program.” states Jaleen Hacklander, Chair of the Performance Horse Award Program Committee.
Participants keep track of the time they spend riding in non-competitive activities and special awards will be presented as each level of participation is reached. Hours count in the following non-competitive activities: trail riding, lessons, parades, pleasure riding, therapeutic riding, schooling sessions & other non-competitive events and activities.
The Pyramid Society is the world’s leading international membership organization dedicated to the Egyptian Arabian horse. Founded in 1969, it has maintained its mission to promote and advance these unique bloodlines through educational venues, local and regional activities, international representation and an active online community. The Society’s focus culminates at the Egyptian Event, the organization’s breed showcase and competition held at The Kentucky Horse Park annually the first week in June.
