    • MFTHBA Top Trail Horse Challenge
      There is no better partner on the trails than a Missouri Fox Trotter. The breed's calm disposition, sound conformation, and surefooted gait provide riders of all ages a willing companion in any terrain. In fact, the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse has been referred to as America's Favorite Trail Horse. To be eligible for this group, horses must be registered with the MFTHBA and their owner must be a current MFTHBA member during the year mileage is accrued. Visit: MFTHBA Top Trail Challenge is based on Equine Mileage for the current calendar year. All General Top Trail Challenge Rules apply to this affiliate group: 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.

    • Taking Care of Your Equine Partner
      Top Trail's official position on the use of equines for Top Trail is that they only be ridden according to their level of fitness. In other words, don't over-ride your or put health & soundness of your equine partner in jeopardy under any circumstances to win a challenge or meet a riding goal. Always put your equine first! That's what it's all about when you get down to the nitty gritty: having a great relationship with your equine and both increasing in skill level! Now, let's respectfully discuss how we take care of our equines. What are your tips for conditioning? Tell us about an issue you experienced with a particular equine and how did you overcome?
