The Board of Governors has formulated Rules of Conduct to ensure that Pittstown Trail Association members do not abuse the privilege of riding on private or public properties. Membership may be revoked for violation.
Respect, at all times, the rights of the property owners across whose lands we are permitted to ride. Remember that you are a guest on the land. When you meet landowners, introduce yourself, be courteous, and let them know how much you appreciate the pleasure they are providing you. One irresponsible person can cause a trail's closing.
Ride the PTA trails only. Do not wander from designated trails. Stay on the edge of farmers' fields.
Observe all trail signs
Do not use any landowner's schooling facilities, jumps, rings, training tracks, playing fields, etc.
When you must open a gate to pass through, be sure to close it behind you.
Group riding is limited to a maximum of 6 horses.
