Golden Path Recreation Program
This program was developed to reward your commitment to using and enjoying the versatile Haflinger horse. As a Golden Path member you are one of the breed’s best representatives, promoting Haflingers suitability for any job, be it work or play. All disciplines are included in this program, from Draft to Dressage. In Golden Path you are recognized for the time you spend riding, driving, and/or doing ground work with your Haflinger. In addition, if you ever do want to part with your pal, you’ve created a permanent record of their hours.
Who Can Join?
– Current AHR members with a registered Haflinger.
– AHR members may enroll a youth on a member-owned Haflinger.
All hours spent in the saddle, on the box, or ground work training (round pen, lunge line, ground driving, etc) and are tracked to a horse or horses (if driven). Enrollment is based on the horse(s) only, and hours may be earned with various riders or drivers. Time spent grooming, bathing, waiting around, hanging out with, or not actively working on riding, driving, or ground work is not counted. Click here to submit your hours.
Individuals and their horse(s) will receive recognition/awards for tracking their logged hours in increments of 25, 50, 100, 200, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000, 3500, 4000, 4500 and 5000 hours.
Beginning with participants that submitted hours in 2008, hours do not expire. You may build on existing hours as long as you remain in the program. Accumulation of hours should begin January 1 thru December 31 of that year. There is no limit to the amount of time taken to achieve milestone hours. The horse must be a registered Haflinger. The Haflinger’s registered name and number must be included on the log sheet. Deadline for submitting hours is January 31.
