Horseback riding in Pomfret is a long established tradition. Pomfret was settled and worked when the horse was the only means of transportation. The Pomfret Horse & Trail Association wants to preserve those means.
Pomfret's unique rural character and agricultural heritage are the reason that most equestrians choose to live here. In order to preserve and maintain the century-old system of trails, we feel a responsibility to help protect the ever precious open space in town. In addition to encouraging good horseback riding practices, PHTA strives to inform, educate and expand public awareness of the opportunities available for equine enthusiasts.
Pomfret Horse & Trail Association is a member of the Connecticut Horse Council.
