History

The OCTRA archivist maintains a treasure trove of old photos, documents and Pulse newsletters. If you are looking for specific history or if  you have any history to share, (documents, newsletters, photos, stories, information, reminiscences) please forward copies or originals to the archivist.  Nothing is too small, too old or too insignificant – your history is OUR history.  Contact info is on the Committee List.

Complete OCTRA Rider and Horse histories, including ride results and historical distance records can be found via the search tab.  Historical Ride Results are also available.

A list of horses is available; however, the membership list is only available to members who must sign in to access it.

OCTRA has had some fabulous horses compete over the years. Some of these horses were nominated to be included on our Horses’ Honour Roll  and/or in the Stall of Fame.

The Honour Roll is awarded to an outstanding horse registered with a OCTRA who is currently retired from active competition.  The horse mudt have been retired in serviceably sound condition and have had at least five years of good performance.  This is a nominated award which is voted on by the OCTRA Board if Directors for year-end awards.

The Stall of Fame is awarded to a horse registered with OCTRA who has proved to be “OUTSTANDING IN THEIR TIME.”  Stall of Fame horses have had a consistent completion and achievement record and demonstrated longevity & performance.  They may have been eligible for national and/or international competition and will have shown qualities of achievement that were above all others competing at that time.  This is a nominated award which is voted on by the OCTRA Board if Directors for year-end awards.
