Our Chapters

We have 16 local chapters throughout Oregon.

Our chapters are key to our success through their efforts with our limited resources of time and people we work to fulfill our Mission.

Each chapter strives to keep their actions and activities relating directly to the mission set forth the OET founders,

Also offering family oriented events, rides and camp outs for members.

Our Story

In 1970, a group of dedicated horsemen and women met to form OET.

To solve the growing resistant towards equestrians using Oregon's public trails and camps.

Today our challenge is to maintain safe equestrian access on our public lands in harmony with other user groups through education.
