Be a part of Australia’s premier representative body for Trail Horse Riders.
Ride with confidence when you have an ATHRA club membership.
ATHRA provides members with great value and benefits.
Pre-nominations are required for all BTR rides in 2017
Please see the ride description for the details of who to contact with your nomination. This is necessary for the ride leader to ascertain how many people are attending a ride, and whether or not the necessary trail bosses will be available for ATHRA certification of the ride. Rides may be cancelled if there are insufficient pre-nominations, so please do not assume you can just show up on the day without prior notice. If your situation changes and you wish to attend a ride on short notice, please contact the ride leader first, to make sure the ride is still going forward.
The ride leader is also the person to contact if you need more information about ride conditions before you decide whether or not to attend.
