Why be a TA member?
1. You are passionate about the Trakehner breed
2. You want to contribute as a breeder, owner, rider or enthusiast
3. You want recognition or "your" breed
If you own or lease a Trakehner purebred or partbred, you can join TA Inc as an "Ordinary member" with voting rights.
An Ordinary Member can:
Have your say in how TA promotes and improves the Trakehner breed in Australia - your input is welcomed. You can express interest in joining the TA committee, either to fill a casual vacancy or to stand as a candidate for a position at the AGM.
Can register your pure or partbreds with TA Inc.
Ordinary members who are breeders can have a free listing on our "Breeders/Studs" page to promote your horses and link to horses you have available for sale. lease or stud services.
Can advertise their registered Trakehner horses free of charge on our webpage and on our facebook page.
You earn the right to proudly use and display the TA logo on your property, stud, stables, float, saddlecloth, rugs etc.
You can participate in the grading "tours" conducted with a Trakehner Verband commissioner grading horses and providing advice to breeders about their breeding goals.
Your Trakehner registered with TA (or with the German TV) is recognised by most Agricultural Show societies as eligible to compete in Warmblood classes, and more importantly in Trakehner classes.
For all classes of member:
You can participate in presenting TA Inc sponsored awards at events across Australia, and/or may be authorised as a TA representative at events to help promote the breed.
You become part of a community interested in furthering the breed and, subject to permission of the individual members, you are able to communicate with other members. (eg: A members' only forum is currently a work in progress, and will soon be available on Facebook).
Posts you wish to share to the TA facebook page are given priority over non-member post requests.
You may participate in Committee activities as a sub-committee member on invitation from the Committee. This may be for promotion of Trakehners generally or for specific task and events.
