Trail rating with ITRS
International Trail Rating System

Can I do this?

You have to answer this question honestly! Otherwise the fun will suffer and you will quickly put yourself and perhaps also others in danger. For each tour we specify the requirements according to ITRS in the tour info. Based on this classification, you can decide whether the tour is something for you.

 

Trail Therapy was substantially involved in the development of the ITRS - in case of questions we are competent contact persons.

The ITRS rates four aspects:

Technical Difficulty

Defined according to the riding skill level that you need to master the technical features of a trail

Wilderness

The amount of planning required to account for mobile phone reception, rescue options,

water supply and dangerous wildlife

Endurance

The combined effect of length, uphill and downhill of a tour

Exposure

Defined by the consequences of a fall
