How to Choose a Riding Partner – June 2016 TrailMeister Newsletter


The TrailMeister Difference

It’s hard to believe that it’s already June. It’s time to ride! After teaching trail riding safety since January, in locations across the country, I’m ready to get out and ride! My ride calendar has me heading back into the Bob Marshall complex in MT (Owl Creek is fabulous!) as well as heading into the Pasyaten and Eagle Cap Wilderness areas. It’s going to be a fab summer! 

One of the questions that I hear a lot is “Why did you create TrailMeister?” The short answer is I got tired of having unwanted adventures trying to find places to ride my horse. I’ll keep my adventures on the trail thank you very much. Other resources lack accuracy and detail. So I created

TrailMeister gives you all of the information you need to decide if a horse trail area is right for you.
Trail Area InformationWith satellite imagery of the parking area you’ll know right away what the parking situation is going to be.

Photos of the trailhead, parking area, and trail system will give you a good idea of what to expect on your ride.

GPS tracks? Yep, we’ve got em! Users can send in GPS tracks of their rides to share.

Weather information? Of course! as well as printable trail maps in most areas.

TrailMeister also gives you information on events that are happening at a horse trail area.

Knowing what the rules and regulations are is important!  Not only does TrailMeister tell you what the rules are we also give you a link to the land manager.

So there you go. If you’re looking for the best information on a horse riding area TrailMeister is the answer. On the off chance that we don’t have an area listed it’s easy to add it. Just click on the “Submit Trail” button.

TrailMeister has become the GO-TO trail tool for horse riders and groups across the nation. I hope that you find it as easy to use as they do.

As always a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the fabulous companies that keep TrailMeister free for all to use and enjoy!
