3. Multiple Horse Entry: Whether you're competing with your seasoned horse or giving your up-and-coming equine partner valuable experience, NTPRA welcomes contestants to enter with multiple horses.

4. Flexibility in Entry: Life happens, and plans can change. NTPRA Events accept entries for patterns that have not yet been run, even if you arrive later than planned.

5. Inclusion in Series Average Awards : Enjoy the opportunity to be included in series average awards without additional fees when series awards are offered. Your success and growth in competitive endeavors matter to us.

6. Exhibition Opportunities: Get a feel for each pattern before you compete with our limited window exhibitions on all patterns. Our exhibition token system allows contestants to adjust your plans based on your experience in your exhibitions without losing your paid exhibition fees. You choose what patterns and how many you would like to do in each pattern, need more than you originally planned? Purchase more exhibition tokens any time in the event office.

7. Instant Results: See the complete event results for each pattern within minutes of the final rider completing the course, ensuring transparency and timely feedback.
