Join an AQHA Trail Ride in 2017

April 6, 2017

The American Quarter Horse Association's Trail Ride Program began in 1997 and annually hosts nearly 80 rides around the world. If you have a horse, you're welcome to participate! Trail riding is a great way to see a new place and on AQHA's organized rides, travelers have the chance to meet other riders, see a new area and enjoy a sort of play date for your horse.

From Texas to Ohio to Canada and Kentucky, check out 2017 trail rides and see where you can explore on horseback.
