Who maintains the trails we ride???

 

It may surprise you, but most trails on public lands are maintained, in large part, by volunteers. ETA organizes volunteers and works with local agencies to help clear and maintain equestrian trails. We need your  help!  Please come volunteer at our next trail work day. Together we can make a difference!

 In 2019 alone, ETA conducted trail work days at Iroquois Park, Jefferson Memorial Forest and McNeely Lake Park.
