HomeADS Hours To Drive
Background Image URL //
ADS members who enjoy recreational driving will be able to earn recognition for time spent in its pursuit, with the start of the ADS Hours to Drive Program which began April 1, 2008.

The program, which will operate on the honor system, is designed to be a simplified version of the old ADS “miles program” for recreational drivers. You drive your horse or pony and write down the number of hours, on the log sheet spent on the box seat that day.

Drivers can earn an “Awards Pin” for 100 hours, 250 hours, 500 hours, 750 hours 1000 hours 1500 hours and 2000 hours of cumulative driving, by completing a log form. Logs must be returned before October 15, so we can report on members who have reached a milestone in the February Whip.

Youth can earn credit towards an end of the year Youth Recreational Championship award.
