What do I need to join a ride?

We are a trail riding group. Although we do enjoy just visiting with people but in order to join the actual trail ride, you will need …

  • An equine partner (yes, the horse/mule)
  • Current Coggins ( the annual test from the vet)
  • The ride registration fee (we wish all this could be free)



Who is SMTR?

Our club was founded to enable equestrians in Southern Maryland and the surrounding areas the opportunity to enjoy the trail riding experience. We are non-competitive, and riders can enjoy the pre-marked trails at their own pace.
