Welcome to the New Jersey Trail Ride Association, NJTRA!
Thank you for visiting our page!
They say it takes a village to run a competitive trail event, and that's the truth.
We are a small group of experienced riders and volunteers that collaborated to bring Competitive Trail Riding to South Jersey.
Distance riders can be some of the most helpful and friendly horse people you may come across. Always willing to share their knowledge and lend a hand. If you are thinking of trying a ride but feel overwhelmed, you need not to worry. Ride managers can find you a veteran mentor to help you along the way. Although it's not a walk in the park, getting started is not as out of reach as you may think. We offer shorter introductory rides, as well as rides up to one hundred miles.
Our Facebook group is a great place to get started if you have any questions. You can find us at NJTRA on FB.
You can also read more about distance riding (endurance and competitive trail) on this website and join the fun!
Please use our "Contact" tab (see above) to email us with your questions or concerns.
Our first rides of the 2019 season will take place on March 23rd and 24th. The Rabbit Run endurance ride and the Bunny Hop competitive trail ride. See the Events and Ride Results tab for more information when available.
