About this group
This affiliate group’s challenge time period begins 1/1/21 and ends 12/31/21 and is based on equine mileage for the calendar year. General Top Trail Challenge Rules apply.

General Challenge Rules:

  • Uploaded tracks (.GPX files) must be ridden (or horse drawn cart), recorded, and posted to your Top Trail account within 72 hours of the ride. This rule is for all challenges, affiliate groups, and competitions on this website unless noted otherwise so all participants have a good idea where they stand in the rankings as close to real time as possible. Please take care to record and upload only your ridden track — nothing else.
  • Uploaded tracks must be at least one mile in length and ridden or driven (equine/cart). You may now include outdoor arena riding tracks.
  • Equine must be ridden or pulling a cart, not ponied.
  • Only one track per equine/rider. Duplicate tracks are not allowed and will be rejected during the upload process. NOTE: if your track has an error, email the .GPX file to and we will attempt to repair it for you then you will be able to upload the corrected trail to your account manually.
