Horses on trails can be intimidating. We identify ways to partner with individuals, organizations, and government entities to develop trails for equestrian and other users.
Texas Equestrian Trail Riding Association (TETRA) is a volunteer organization formed in 1997 with a mission to promote all phases of trail riding, develop trails and educate the public regarding horses and trail etiquette when encountering them on the trail. Attendees will learn about the history of TETRA, some of its accomplishments, and how partnering with others has led to cooperative relationships and the opening of many miles of multiuse trails across Texas. Three primary types of effective partnerships and some of the challenges faced and overcome will be discussed. Attendees will have an opportunity to discuss issues they have faced and identify effective strategies for working together to overcome obstacles.
