Join the Board!

MTRA is always looking for new ideas and ways to improve our organization. Board positions are voluntary and we ask you attend 3 general membership meetings a year as well as 1 annual BOD meeting.

Our BOD is dedicated to maintaining and developing horse trails and improvement to horse camps by working with the DNR, Local and County Parks. We are fortunate to have received the FRTP Grant for over 20 years which matches our dollars 3 to 1. We promote trail riding by offering 3 organized rides a year plus an adventure ride that is held out of State.

If you’re interested in becoming a MTRA Board of Director, please mail in your application so that it is received no later than November 1, 2022 to be considered for a 2023 position. A BOD application can be found in our newsletter on page 5. For those who are not currently paid members but interested in becoming a Board of Director, please call Kris at 952 469 2851 for more info. Thank you!
