Welcome to the TREC Ireland website. TREC is an equestrian discipline which was originally developed in France in the 1970s to improve the skills of trekking guides and horses. It grew from there and is now a sport enjoyed by thousands of riders throughout Europe, Canada, America and more recently Japan. FITE (Federation Internationale de Tourisme Equestre) is the international governing body for TREC.
TREC is very versatile in that it caters for horses and riders young and old. Riders can challenge themselves and progress to the highest levels or select the level which suits their confidence and ability. Above all, it's a very social sport, providing riders with the opportunity to develop their skills in some of the most stunning settings.
TREC is suited to many settings, if you would like to take part or you would like to host an information or training event for you club or yard, please get in touch with email@example.com. Please explore the site for further information on all aspects of TREC as well as TREC groups in your area.

TREC Ireland Announcement: Corona CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
TREC Ireland would urge groups to postpone or cancel all events, trainings, meetings throughout the rest of March. TREC Ireland will continue to review the situation, in line with any advice received from the Department of Health and the Health Service Executive (HSE). However we feel that it is likely that any TREC Ireland Training/Events currently planned for April should also be moved to later in the year.
The National Championships are postponed until late summer. More information to follow.
