What does SOTA do?  SOTA collaborates with the National

Steeplechase Association to help ensure safe and successful races. SOTA provides a representative at each race meet that give the race chairmen and the horsemen a point person to discuss issues with. SOTA supports races for Apprentices by raising purse money and organizing events.  SOTA provides a platform for open and creative discussions about how to stimulate interest and, more importantly, participation in our sport.

To be a voting member of SOTA, you must be a licensed owner or trainer. If not one of these, you can still join as a Supporting member. Supporting membership is crucial because your dues go to Apprentice rider opportunities and other activities.
