Equus Best Performance Competitions

The Best Performance Competition (BPC) is a cumulative awards program open to Junior, Amateur, and Professional competitors in all divisions at all participating horse shows. The underlying mission is to reward competitive excellence and encourage education, awareness, and philanthropic support of horse welfare.

Enter one of the four Best Performance Competition classes at participating shows for the $20 tax-deductible entry fee: Best Junior on a Pony Best Junior on a Horse Best Amateur Best Professional

Wear the official EQUUS Foundation Armband while competing.

Winners are selected by the judges and receive points based on the number of class entries. Standings are based on points accumulated by winners throughout the competition year.

The proceeds will help reduce the unwanted horse population, retrain horses for multiple careers, and make equine therapy available to more people with special needs.

For the EQUUS Foundation, it's all about how horses move us beyond our boundaries - as athletes and humanitarians.

TAKE2 Second Career Thoroughbred Program

The TAKE2 Second Career Thoroughbred Program Inc. is committed to promoting and developing second careers for racehorses when they have retired from the track. Launched in 2012 by the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, in collaboration with the New York Racing Association and the New York Thoroughbred Breeders Inc., TAKE2 funds prize money and awards in hunter and jumper classes restricted to Thoroughbreds that are eligible to be registered with The Jockey Club. The program was offered at AA-rated horse shows in New York, New Jersey, and Texas in 2012.

In its second year, it was expanded to include more than 190 horse shows in 10 of the 12 USEF zones across 22 states. TAKE2 classes are now offered at more than 250 horse shows in 23 states.

TAKE2 highlights the success of Thoroughbreds as show horses. The goal is to create a market for retired racehorses, ensuring secure futures beyond the racetrack.

“It is of utmost importance to racing’s owners and trainers that our horses have happy and productive lives when they leave the track,” NYTHA President Rick Violette Jr. said. “In recent years, it has been harder to find homes for retired racehorses in the sport horse world, because the popularity of Thoroughbreds as hunters and jumpers has been on the decline. We believe TAKE2 is helping to reverse that trend. The program was met with remarkable enthusiasm, and horse shows have been eager to add the TAKE2 classes to their prize lists. It is also encouraging to discover how many riders, from the pony clubbers to Olympic-class horsemen, now look to the Thoroughbred when it’s time to shop for their next horse.”

TAKE2 is open to all Thoroughbreds verified by The Jockey Club registrations papers or lip tattoo number at time of entry. Raced and unraced Thoroughbreds are eligible for the program. There will be no co-branding or co-sponsorship allowed with any TAKE2 sponsored division or class.

The TAKE2 Hunter Division includes classes over fences, with fences at 3’0″, and an under-saddle class.

The TAKE2 Jumper Division includes Over Fences classes, with fences at 3’3″/1.0 meter.

The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program

The Jockey Club created the Thoroughbred Incentive Program (T.I.P.)to encourage the retraining of Thoroughbreds into other disciplines upon completion of careers in racing or breeding. T.I.P. offers sponsorship for Thoroughbred-only classes and divisions, high point Thoroughbred awards at open horse shows and competitions, year end Performance Awards, a Thoroughbred of the Year Award and a Young Rider of the Year Award.

From the first T.I.P. event at Red Hills International Horse Trial in Florida on March 8, 2012 through the end of 2015, there were more than 1,700 horse shows and events with T.I.P. classes or awards held in 44 states and Canadian provinces. More than 17,000 eligible Thoroughbreds participated in these shows and events, competing for thousands of ribbons, hundreds of prizes and thousands of dollars in prize money simply for being a registered Thoroughbred. In 2016, an additional 850 sponsored horse shows will be offering awards for Thoroughbreds in 42 states and Canadian province and in virtually every imaginable discipline.

Thoroughbreds are versatile athletes, which makes them ideally suited for any number of disciplines beyond the racetrack. T.I.P. helps showcase the breed's many talents at all levels of competition and encourages the retraining of Thoroughbreds once they have finished their racing or breeding career.

T.I.P. recognizes and rewards the versatility of the Thoroughbred through sponsorship of Thoroughbred classes and high point awards at sanctioned horse shows and through two annual awards: the T.I.P. Thoroughbred of the Year Award and the T.I.P. Young Rider of the Year Award.

For purposes of eligibility for all T.I.P. classes and awards, a "Thoroughbred" is defined as any horse that has been registered with The Jockey Club or a foreign Thoroughbred stud book approved by The Jockey Club and the International Stud Book Committee.

In order to participate in a T.I.P. class or be eligible for a T.I.P. award, owners and riders must obtain a T.I.P. Number. Riders and owners should provide their T.I.P. Number with their entry AND at the time of their registration to ensure they are included by the show organizers in consideration for the awards. It is the responsibility of the owner/rider to ensure that the horse show knows the horse is eligible for awards.

The Jockey Club T.I.P. High Point Thoroughbred Hunter Award will be given to the Hunter Thoroughbred at the horse show accumulating the most points toward the award in Hunter classes, and the Jockey Club T.I.P. High Point Thoroughbred Jumper Award will be given to the Jumper Thoroughbred at the horse show accumulating the most points toward the award in Jumper classes. A high point ribbon will be provided for each award.
