Welcome to the newly revised Trailblazers and Reinsman Program for members of the Lippitt Club. This program takes the Saddle and Harness Log of the past and adds a few new incentives for our members.
We believe it is important to recognize those members who are using their Lippitts and Half-Lippitts under saddle or in harness. Time spent training, exercising, trail riding, ranch work, and driving is all counted in this program. Preparation for shows, arena work, riding/driving lessons, clinics and many other past-times spent with your horses all count – just not the time spent in or at any form of competition itself.
How does it work?
Send a Trailblazer Enrollment Form and $15.00 (check payable to The Lippitt Club, Inc.) to the name listed on the form. This is a once in a member’s lifetime enrollment fee, and covers some of the program expenses. When you enroll, you will receive a specially designed ball cap to wear while you are out enjoying your horses.
Use the Trail Blazers Log to keep track of the hours you spend with your Lippitts. When you have reached the stated hours of driving or riding, send the form to Claire Wagner.
We will send you a certificate for that level of accomplishment, and a congratulatory note will be placed in the Newsletter and on the Website. The first 100 hours you log, you will also receive an embroidered patch for your jacket or vest, declaring your participation. Different patches will be awarded for 200 and 300 hours of time you log. Keep on riding and driving — your award for participation will be a windbreaker jacket embroidered with your name and declaring your achievement of 500 hours. Additional awards will be made for 1000, 1500 and 2000 hours.
There is no time limit for achieving hours, and no limit on the hours or horses used on any day. The awards are based upon the rider – not the horse(s) you work with. Therefore, more than one horse may be used, but it must be Lippitt or Half-Lippitt (defined as having one full Lippitt parent).
There is only one catch: you must remain a member of the Lippitt Club while you are recording hours spent with your horses. If your membership lapses, the hours you spend with your horse while you are not a member will not count. You may resume the program upon rejoining the Club at a later date.
All hours will accumulate on the form provided. You may make copies of the form. Submit the completed form when you reach each level of the program.
3615 N Twin Oaks Valley Road

A new form must be submitted as you reach each level of the program.
Happy riding and driving! Go out and enjoy your Lippitt today, and log those hours!
