Competitive Distance Program (CDP)
Do you like to spend time on your horse competing in distance riding events
such as Endurance Rides, Competitive Trail Rides, or Ride and Tie competitions? If
so, Arabian Horse Association would like to present you with an opportunity to receive
recognition for your accomplishments.
The Competitive Distance Program (CDP) promotes and rewards riders who use Arabian
horses to compete in distance riding events. Your efforts and achievements will be
rewarded with recognition and prizes.
The Arabian horse is the most popular choice for distance events, and AHA wants to recognize your accomplishments! Join now to start tracking
those hard-earned miles. Click here to signup now!
Sounds great... How do I join?
Riders who would like to compete in CDP must fill out
the Incentive Program Sign-Up Form to join.
Program participants are defined as an individual rider,
not a specific horse and rider combination. This means that as a rider, you may ride any number of horses, regardless of whether you own them or not, as long as they are all registered Arabians, Half-Arabians or Anglo-Arabians.
NOTE: Participation in any Arabian Horse Association program requires a
current membership with the Arabian Horse Association. Click here

How do I report my miles?
After you have enrolled in the CDP Incentive Program through
the Incentive Program Sign-Up Form, you will have access to your account at any time right online.
Because all of the AHA Incentive Programs are online, you
can update your miles and report a ride whenever it is convenient for you!
As soon as you log your miles in the online CDP Log, they will be permanently
recorded in the CDP Incentive Program. Once you have reached a milestone (see below), you will receive
your milestone award.
**Rides completed prior to enrollment in CDP will not be applied even if
they were during the same calendar year**
What are the CDP Milestones & Awards?
