Ride & Drive
A Reward Program for Recreational Riders and Drivers
The AEF Ride and Drive program is a rewards program designed to give recreational riders, drivers and vaulters an extra incentive to spend more hours in the saddle or behind the breeching; whether it be for practice, exercise, therapy or just plain fun.
It is open to all AEF members having fun with their horses! Even those who just take lessons or lease a horse are eligible to participate.
There is no age restriction – it’s for the young and the young-at-heart! All that is required is your yearly AEF membership with the Ride and Drive Add-on. Then start counting the hours of fun and relaxation riding/driving your horses. The hours accumulate and continue to build up even if you have to re-register (this means you never lose your hours). The ultimate goal of 2,000 hours is worth striving for!
Rewards are progressive, starting with the 25 hour level and ending at the 2000 hour level. Hours spent riding or driving must be logged on a daily basis on a Ride and Drive log sheet and submitted if requested.
