TREC is an international equestrian trail sport that tests the skills, confidence, and abilities of horses and riders or driving teams over various terrains and obstacles.
- TREC takes two forms – Ridden TREC and Driven TREC.
- Both forms involve an Orienteering Phase and a Trail Obstacle Phase.
- Ridden TREC includes a third phase known as Control of Paces.
Things that differentiate TREC from other trail sports include:
- The development of navigational skills which gives riders and drivers the freedom to explore greater areas with their horses and ponies.
- A well-defined set of obstacles with standardized specifications and scoring giving competitors the opportunity to practice and improve their skills.
