Advocating for Trail Riding Enthusiasts

Preserving Our Heritage (since 2001)

  • Retaining our rights of equestrian access and responsible use of the back country requires a unified, coordinated effort. Although most user groups accept equine use, there are some that would like to see equine activities prohibited in public wilderness areas.

Our Priorities

  • To assist the various government and private agencies in the establishment, maintenance and management of trails and other back country resources.
  • To work to ensure that public lands remain open to recreational stock use.
  • To educate and encourage the wise use of the back-country resource by horsemen and the general public.
  • To perpetuate the common-sense use and enjoyment of horses in America’s back country and wilderness.
  • To actively involve youth in activities related to our purpose, and maintain a family-oriented organization.
