GAHA Frequent Rider Programs

The Frequent Rider Programs (FRP) awards riders for every hour that they spend riding or driving an Arabian or Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabian horse in non-competitive activities. The best part of the FRP is that the type of riding doesn't matter as long as it is non-competitive! Whether you use an Arabian or Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabian horse to trail ride, do ranch work, participate in parades, take riding lessons, train under saddle or just ride or drive for pleasure, you can now be recognized and awarded for what you love most.


Any questions please contact our 2020 Frequent Rider Program Committee Leader

Angel Johns at or at 678.910.3907 with any questions.

Program participants are defined as an individual rider, not a specific horse and rider combination. This means that as a rider, you may ride any number of horses, regardless of whether you own them or not, as long as they are all Arabians or Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabians.

Which activities are recognized?

The FRP will recognize any activity with a registered Arabian or Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabian horse, as long as the participant is riding/driving the horse.

Some examples are:   

  • Trail Riding   

  • Parades   

  • Riding Lessons   

  • Training Under Saddle   

  • Ranch Work   

  • Demonstrations   

  • Pleasure Riding   

  • Pleasure Driving

Hours that do NOT count are any non-riding activities that might include: Groundwork, Feeding, Cleaning Stalls, Tacking Up, Trailering, Veterinary Care.

Only non-competitive riding or driving hours, logged from January 1- December 25th of one calendar year, count towards the GAHA End of Year Frequent Rider Awards.

Hours MUST BE sent to GAHA FRP Chairperson NO LATER THAN December 25th of the award year to be eligible for GAHA Award Banquet to be held January of next year.
