New England Trail Riders 

New England Trail Riders Association (NETRA) conduct monthly trail rides in and around the Armidale area, from Moonbi, up to Glen Innes, out to Bingara and to the mid north coast. We also have overnight rides and an annual signature ride along the Bicentennial Trail.

NETRA is a predominately walk only trail riding club that is friendly and easy going. NETRA has members from 4 to 80, and caters for novice riders and young horses. Monthly newsletters herald details of the up coming ride and or contact one of the executive.

All riders must be a member of NETRA. All horses must be sound and appropriate as deemed by our horse steward.
