Welcome! Thank you for checking us out! Oregon Equestrian Trails is a very active non profit organization. We have over 700 members in our 12 Chapters throughout Oregon.

Who Are We?

OET’s mission is to make sure that equestrians continue to be able to use horse camps and trails throughout Oregon. Our chapters work hard to keep these trails and camps maintained and usable for all equestrians. We do this in cooperation with Oregon State Parks, Oregon Dept. of Forestry (ODF), USFS, BLM and many other agencies and land managers!

The riding season is here~~come join us to get the trails and campgrounds ready for a great spring and summer! Scroll down to our calendar~ Our Chapters also have many events all over Oregon including rides, campouts, parades, etc.

Check out the beautiful Circle Y Saddle we are raffling off for our banquet fundraiser! Comfy men’s saddle 17″ seat Park N Ride valued at $1200 only 250 tickets will be sold for just $20 each! Purchase your tickets now before they are all gone!

What’s in it for you?

*The knowledge that you always have somewhere to turn with your horse questions, horse ideas and above all plenty of equestrian loving friends.

*Because of our membership we have clout. We have a larger voice. Whether you join work parties or just enjoy reading the monthly newsletter, EVERY member is important!

You can help out with an event, group ride or trail work party, or be a chapter officer ~there is something for everyone who wants to get more involved. We are always in need of folks who are looking for a fun volunteer opportunity that is centered around horses. We have a President, Board of Directors which includes the Chapter Chair from each chapter, State Secretary, State Treasurer as well as Vice Presidents which include Marketing/Outreach, Public Lands and Field Services…..not to mention officer positions inside each Chapter. All positions except State positions are only a 1 year commitment, most folks stay on for a few years because it is a very fulfilling experience. There is always tons of opportunity to elevate the organization!
