Top Trail is more than trail mileage challenges—it’s also a lifetime mileage program for both equine and rider as rides are recorded and logged.
Every time you log a trail ride on your account, your miles are added to your account. We celebrate your lifetime Top Trail mileage a couple ways:
- When you join Top Trail as a brand new premium member, we will mail you a Top Trail patch.
- When you Renew with Top Trail as a premium member, you will receive a Top Trail sticker for your truck or trailer.
Effective immediately, we are also sending out silicon “Start & Stop Your GPS” reminder bracelets that you can keep or share with a friend.
You should receive these items within a month of beginning or renewing your membership.
If you renew your premium membership in the month of January, we will include your sticker & silicon reminder bracelets with your annual mileage certificates.
At the end of each year of your membership, we double check annual and lifetime miles for you and your equine (if more than one, the equine with the most miles during that year) on your account during the year. Certificates (see below) are generated, printed, and mailed out usually late January/early February. With your certificates you will also receive any milestone rocker patches earned.
Milestone Rocker Patches:
At the end of each calendar year, we generate an official printed certificate displaying annual mileage plus lifetime mileage for you and one horse (with the most mileage during the calendar year) on your account. If you, as a rider, have reached any milestones in 1000 mile increments, you will also receive mileage rocker patches with your certificate. These are mailed out to our members early in the year with Annual Mileage certificates, usually late January, early February. It’s important that we have your current mailing address for this reason.
Digital Milestone Certificates:
Along the way you will reach “milestones” (250, 500, 750, 1000 and then every 500 miles thereafter). For years we painstakingly audited rider & equine mileage and generated digital milestones.
In 2022 we are working to automate this process.
Once the process is automated, you will see your milestones on your Top Trail profile. They will look something like this:
