Welcome to our web site!

The people and organizations that make up OET work to establish and maintain equestrian trails and camps throughout the state of Oregon. OET cooperates to make sure all state and federal fish, game and forest laws are enforced fairly, and to help improve the regulations that govern activities in the back country and wilderness areas, especially pertaining to horse use. OET links horse people together by relaying news about the activities, objectives and problems of its members, and helps solve those problems whenever it can. Above all, Oregon Equstrian Trails encourages and works for the preservation of the forests, wildlife and natural resources of the Pacific Northwest.
