ACTHA's mission has many similarities with USEF:
• To create an enjoyable venue showcasing the wonderful attributes of the great American trail horse and granting them the recognition they so richly deserve.
• To create a registry open to all breeds and a point designation system which will stay with each horse for its lifetime, thereby adding to their value and distinction.
• To create and enable humane treatment and employment options for horses in need
ACTHA founder Carrie Scrima states she is pleased joining with the USEF family and states, “it is well known that the USEF works to connect with equestrians and other members nationwide, while providing leadership, vision and guidance. In my past work with hunters and jumpers I have been well served by the USEF. Like the USEF, ACTHA works to promote the safety and welfare of horses and riders, and are open to all breeds and all disciplines. I look forward to working with the USEF as an Alliance Partner as we work towards completing our joint missions.”
ACTHA will have sanctioned and held almost 1,000 trail related events in their current calendar year and has over 25,000 horses in their registry and contributes to charity every time an ACTHA event is held.
