NJ State 4-H Competitive Trail Ride

For More Info

Carol Ward:
This program is designed to stimulate greater interest in trail riding, to teach proper methods of training and conditioning horses for trail riding, to encourage good horsemanship and safety on trail rides. Trail riding is a healthy, enjoyable recreation. It is fun and gives one the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the Garden State. Riders have the responsibility to respect the property rights of others and to share the trails with other trail users.

It is hoped that this program will stimulate interest in preserving existing horseback riding trails and encourage the development of many miles of new multi-use trails for present and future New Jersey horsepeople.

A twenty-five (25) mile trail ride, with natural obstacles, will be judged on condition and management of the horse.
