Great Lakes Distance Riding Association


GLDRA warmly invites all those who are passionate about distance riding to come ride with us this year. We host many rides on our aesthetically pleasing trails, from Marquette to Milford. And if the splendor of Michigan’s outdoors hasn’t quite piqued all of your interest, then the challenge and adventure of riding our trails should invoke that fire in you and your horse’s soul. 

Below you will find ride flyers, that are downloadable for your convenience, and a schedule you may also download and print out. Hope to see you out there on the trails!

Rides will require a UMECRA Ride Entry Form. We have put the downloadable link here for your convenience. Also you are strongly encouraged to have a GLDRA membership, which again you can either click the link here to download a printable membership form, or sign up online here–or navigate to our membership tab in the top menu. An AERC membership is also suggested, you can sign up via check and mail or online.
