2021 Season

Posted on January 22, 2021 at 2:35 PM

The CTRA is very hopeful a 2021 season will be able to take place. We have been waiting for the new government regulations to be updated, so we have a better understanding on what needs to happen with our association. Our board has a scheduled meeting in February- we hope to propose dates and move forward with an exciting trick riding year! We will keep you updated! 

Trick Changes

Posted on May 15, 2020 at 5:20 PM

We have reviewed and adjusted trick values. A highlighed trick value is an indicator that it has been changed. We have increased many of the groundwork values to encourage members to incorperate vaults into their trick line up. Please take a look and happy practicing!

2020 Season

Posted on May 15, 2020 at 4:25 PM

Unfortunately, due to the covid 19 restrctions being put out by the government and the uncertainty of things at this time, the decision has been made for the CTRA to cancel the 2020 season.  It is super disappointing as we all love getting together with our trick riding family! Practice, practice, practice and we will see you all next year for an amazing 2021 trick riding season!
