The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program (T.I.P.) has approved nearly 7,000 awards and classes at more than 1,400 shows in 41 U.S. states and six Canadian provinces for 2020.
Awards are to be distributed in a variety of disciplines, including eventing, dressage, Western and English pleasure, hunter/jumper, endurance, Western performance, games, and polocrosse. Awards are also available at some events for Thoroughbreds within their first two years of showing or for Thoroughbreds within two years of their last start. A full calendar can be viewed here.
T.I.P. will also host two shows at the Kentucky Horse Park in conjunction with New Vocations/All-Thoroughbred Charity Shows. The first show Sept. 4-6 will offer classes for classes for hunters, jumpers, Western pleasure, and English pleasure. The second show Oct. 4 will include classes for dressage, Western dressage, and a combined test. A class list is available here.
