  • 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.

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.
