Thanks for your interest in the Readington Trail Association!
Readington Trail Association (RTA) members can be anyone who enjoys riding or hiking. Together, we work to preserve the rural atmosphere of Readington through establishing and maintaining many miles of beautiful trails throughout the Township. We also work to educate members, the local horse community and emergency responders about equine health, safety, and emergency planning.
RTA was established in 1994. We received our 501c3 status in January 2011 through the umbrella organization, Coalition for Animals.

In addition to maintaining existing trails in the township, we seek to form a contiguous trail network while maintaining the agricultural heritage of the land using both open space and private land access granted by private landowners.
Our membership spans a diverse spectrum of disciplines from hiking, fox hunting, dressage and driving, to pleasure riding and competitive trail. Horseback riders are both English and Western.
As an organization of responsible citizens, we maintain a general liability policy for our members and landowners. Yearly dues is used to pay for insurance, trail maintenance, trail and road signage, public relations, supplies and postage. Through annual donations, we also support Readington's 4 Firehouses, Police, and Rescue Squad as well as other local organizations in need such as Camp Brett Endeavor, Round Valley Youth Center, local horse rescue organizations, Animeals, and more.
We organize trail clearings either monthly or as needed. Each year, we organize, sponsor and/or participate in many activities as detailed below.
Club rides and monthly social/business meetings
Festive holiday party
March, ride and drive in the Whitehouse Memorial Day Parade
Monthly trail clearings and "ride and clip" to maintain the extensive trail network throughout the township
Fundraiser rides including hunter paces and Halloween costume rides
Open space initiatives are supported for passive recreation
Seminars with Readington’s firemen to share information about barn fire safety and rescue procedures

We continue to be very busy planning the events for the upcoming year. Our meetings are held on the evening of the second Monday of the month at varying locations. Links to meeting info, upcoming events and membership forms are posted on the home page.
