RIDE TREC is
based on the French discipline “Le Trec”. Its French name, Techniques de
Randonnée Equestre de Compétition gives us the abbreviation “TREC”. The original concept of Le Trec was to test the expertise
of professional equestrian trekking guides yet it also appeals to the everyday
grass roots rider who enjoys the thrill of riding out either as an individual
or a pair in unfamiliar countryside. It tests their navigational competence,
control of their horse’s paces and their ability to tackle a variety of obstacles.
