For the year 2018 we are currently looking for Outlaws regional officers.

Ohio Trail Riders is currently looking for a president, vice president, and youth division trail boss for the Outlaws region. (Map below highlights areas covered in the Outlaws region)  These members will be responsible for organizing trail riding events in their area, and responsible for organizing their counties in that region.

We have four regions in the Ohio Trail Riders' Association; Wild Bunch, Rough Riders, Ghost Riders, Outlaws.

These four regions each have a president, vice president, secretary, trail master - also known as a territorial marshal, a trail guard, a trail team, and a youth division trail boss.

In addition to these regional areas & officers, each and every county inside the regions has a president that also creates and organizes events. The president may add additional individual county office as they deem necessary.  Individual counties are free to organize their own events, as well as participating in regional and state OTRA events. All individual county events are to be shared within that chapter, as well as the Ohio Trail Riders' website and Facebook for all to have the option to participate.

We still have many counties open and looking for chapters. If you live in a county without an organized OTRA chapter and would like to form and head up your county, contact us and we will activate your county's chapter.  OTRA is free for all to have fun, get out and do some trail riding, meet new riders and people who love horses, as well as develop and maintain a network of connections in the equine industry throughout Ohio.  

Individual county chapter presidents, should strongly consider electing the help of a vice president and youth division trail boss at a minimum, to grow their county's membership and assist with chapter events.  

We have the opportunity to make OTRA a dynamic organization and presence in our communities, growing our membership and providing all members great trail riding, family fun and horse related activities.
