About U.S. Trail Ride Inc.

USTR is a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to preserving and creating trails for riding fun and pleasure.



Since its incorporation on March 30, 1987, USTR has evolved from a 100-mile endurance riding club to the present-day club of horse enthusiasts and pleasure riders who enjoy riding local and regional trails in northern Virginia and nearby states.


Through volunteering and direct financial support, USTR is dedicated to contributing to the development and maintenance of multi-use trails and facilities to benefit all equestrians.To fund our efforts, we host our annual Memorial Day Benefit ride in Loudoun County, and we support the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship’s (BRCES) trails through fundraising and maintenance.


USTR provides a variety of educational and informative programs, open to the public, during our monthly meetings.  Additionally, we hold social events and monthly trail rides available to members. USTR member meetings take place generally on the first Friday of each month.


You can also keep up with the Club events and local trail conditions through our forums on the website, our Facebook page, and website.
