(Rides vary in length and difficulty of terrain. If you have any questions, contact the ride host.)

Saturday rides begin at 10:00 am and Sunday rides begin at 9:00 am unless otherwise noted.  It's the riders responsibility to check with the ride host in case of inclement weather and for  directions to the ride location.

  • Any horse that might kick should be identified by a red ribbon in their tail.
  • Stallions must be ridden by adults, identified by yellow ribbon front and back and be well in hand. When tie conditions exist, all stallions must be double tied at all times. The primary rope is tied in the normal manner, but the second rope must be secured around the stallion's neck, run through the halter ring and tied in the normal manner. If the rope around the neck is secured with a knot, it must be a bowline. The primary and secondary rope will not be tied to the same tie spot.
  • New rides are always welcome.
  • More information and directions can be found in the Horsemen's Roundup, or the ATRA Yahoo Group website.

Mark you calendars as HHTB is having their 5th challenge out of the 8
obstacle challenge's for the 2015 season. We will have a total of 10
obstacles set up in a covered outdoor arena where there is usually a
decent breeze blowing along with room to get in the shade with your
horse. We have 2 Courses available to compete on with the 1st being more
Competitive and for riders who wants to compete on a higher level or for
riders competing for year end awards. (You DO NOT have to be a member of
HHTB to ride on any of the courses) The 2nd Course is a Fun Class where
riders are still judged and will ride the same course as the Competitive
riders with just a few adjustments but the points don't accumulate for
any year end prizes. Each course will be $5.00 to enter for adults and
$3.00 for kids 17 years of age and under. For example a rider may ride 1
horse in the Competitive Course and may ride the same horse in the Fun
Class for a total of $10.00 for adults or $6.00 for kids. Ribbons are
awarded in each division for 1st-5th place in all divisions. There is
divisions for everyone to enter regardless of age or level of riding. We
have Extreme Beginner for adults who have never seen an obstacle course
before to advanced where there is sidepassing and the course gets more
difficult. We have riders from the age of 4 to the young age of 75 that
compete. This will be the 5th challenge out of 8 for the 2015 season. The
dates for the rest of the challenges are Sept.26, Oct. 24, and Nov. 7.
After the challenge on November 7 we will have our awards ceremony for
the 2015 season.
(Unfortunately it is to late to start competing for year end awards with
having to attend 5 out of the 8 challenges but don't let that stop you
from coming as we hand out some really nice door prizes at each event)
There will be a post regarding concessions (Food and Drinks) at a later
date.

(All rides are weather permitting – if you’re not sure, call the ride sponsor)

To get information on how to sponsor a ride contact:
Tina Taylor - (501)
764-8238, (501) 339-8863 or
ridehost@arkansastrailridersassoc.com

Everyone who host's a ride please remember to submit your information about the ride a few days before the 9th of the month immediately after the ride so the ride can get in the Roundup.

Ride hosts also must get their rides to Tina at least a few days prior to the 9th of the month preceding the ride. For instance if you plan to host a ride the 17th of April you'd need to get it on the calendar a few days prior to the 9th of March. A ride the first week of a month may have to be posted on the calendar even earlier due to the timing when the Roundup hits mailboxes and stores.

Please be aware of the departure time for announced trail rides. As a courtesy to others, always arrive early enough to be saddled up and ready to go at the announced departure time. Note: You do not have to be a member to ride with us, just come and have a good time.  Everyone please have a current negative Coggins with you.  Bring your lunch and drinks.  Saturday rides begin at 10:00 am and Sunday rides begin at 9:00 am unless otherwise noted.  It's the riders responsibility to check with the ride host in case of inclement weather and for directions to the ride location.  Our yearly family memberships are $15.00 this includes having the Roundup magazine delivered to your house every month, which is worth the membership fee.
