Meet the Minnesota Trail Riders Association

From the Minnesota Trail Riders Association (MTRA) —

MTRA uses their membership dollars and donations to provide financial assistance to local, county, and state parks in Minnesota that allow equestrian use in their park. With the help of the DNR, we are able to receive funds from the Federal Recreational Trails Program that allows us to finance more projects annually.

MTRA hosts three rides annually in different locations of Minnesota as well as hosting one out-of-state ride, known as the Adventure Ride. Our rides are the perfect opportunity for riders to enjoy new trails and meet new friends. Join us in the evening for a potluck and silent auction. We have great items for you to choose from.

MTRA has a booth located in the Coliseum at the Minnesota Horse Expo each year. Please stop by our booth and get to know more about MTRA and see pictures of projects our membership has helped to finance. Chances are we have financed a project at your favorite park.

Please consider joining MTRA today. Membership is $30 annually and can be completed online at our website.

As a member of MTRA, you will receive five newsletters each year keeping you updated with what is going on with parks, trails, and legislation and much more.
