Annual Members button

Since 1920, the Bedford Riding Lanes Association has maintained a historic system of trails and dirt roads that extends and connects more than 100 linear miles. Our yellow blazed trails meander through Bedford, Bedford Hills, Bedford Corners, Mount Kisco, Katonah, and the Pound Ridge areas. Alongside the local community, the BRLA is actively engaged in preserving "horse country," as well as its unique, cherished, and rural character.

Join us as an Annual Riding, Walking, or Supportive Member to help us preserve a trail that allows for walking and horseback riding in Bedford, NY. With everyone's participation, we can achieve our goal of maintaining our community’s most beautiful and unique feature.

When I ride the trails or walk with my friends or family, I can hardly believe we are so close to NYC. I feel so fortunate to have the BRLA trails within our community. Venturing on the BRLA trails is a destresser, a mini-vacation without leaving home.

To me, the BRLA Trails represent Health, Wellness Community. I feel it's important to support the BRLA even though I do not personally use the trails. I enroll in an annual family membership so my kids/grandkids can go for a walk in nature when they are visiting.

The two BRLA Hunter Paces are the highlight of my year. They are so well organized and the routes are incredible with open fields, interesting meandering trails, water crossings, jump options and more. Exhilarating!

We recently moved to Bedford. Our new home has a trail easement. We love seeing horses stroll by it makes us feel so lucky to be out of the City among such beauty.

Family Fun and Outdoor Enjoyment

The trails are a treasure in every season. Year-round I walk my dog on a leash on the dirt roads, hike with my husband in some of the labyrinth trails, ride with my daughter in the WPRR and love tromping through the snow on blaze following adventures with my son in the winter.
