NSBTA 2021 Membership Form

You do not have to be a rider to support our organization.  We count on those of you who appreciate how horseback riding benefits the community by encouraging open space.  Thank you in advance!


Attention Trail Riders

NSBTA Members OnlyWith the exception of Town property, conservation land and roads, our trail system is made up entirely of private property. Trail riding in North Salem and environs depends on the cooperation of our landowners. Everyone MUST be a member of NSBTA to ride on the trails! We can continue to enjoy our trails only if ALL RIDERS follow a few common sense rules and use good, safe and respectful judgement on the trails.
