Welcome to Cross Timbers Equestrian Trails Association (CTETA)—a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to trail stewardship. Since our founding in 1993, our mission has been to develop, maintain, and preserve equestrian trails while promoting responsible trail use and safety through volunteering, education and membership.
Our goal is simple: to allow the maximum number of people to enjoy the beautiful trails of our area on horseback!CTETA volunteers maintain more than 25 miles of trails here in North Texas. The work of our trail ambassadors helps to create a safe experience for our riders and includes clearing deadfall, cutting back brush, and mowing the grass. Without us, many of these trails would cease to exist entirely.
As with most government agencies, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is faced with cutbacks and limited funds for trail improvements. Club membership dues can only go so far. Therefore, it is important to have a strong membership base, not only for funds to support the trail maintenance, but for education and a continued strong voice in local matters of trail preservation and acquisition of land for connecting trails.
