Shiawassee Trail Riders

Riding with Friends since 1961.

In 1961 ...

In 1961, a group of horse riders got together and decided to start up a new organization. The purpose of this was to encourage, promote, and expand the wholesome sport of horseback riding for their own pleasure and enjoyment of others.

To reach our goal we schedule trail rides April through October. The Shiawassee Trail Riders ride in many different areas, from Ionia recreation area on the west side of the state to Hadley Hills (Ortonville recreation area) on the east side. We also hit the trails at Waterloo, Mayberry, Proud Lake, Highland, Pontiac, and Brighton. We try to plan at least two rides in northern Michigan as well as rides outside of Michigan. You must be a member to attend our rides. Our e-mail address is


We hold our winter meeting the last Saturday in January, and sometimes summer meeting at a scheduled ride.  We will have Food, a Silent Auction, Clothing, and information available at these meetings.
