Newtown Bridle Lands Association

Preserving Our Open Space Since 1978

The Newtown Bridle Lands Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving open spaces and trails throughout Newtown for passive recreational use like horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking. We educate the community about horseback riding through collaborative events with like-minded organizations. We host presentations on topics of interest to horse riders and owners. We take our members on group rides to introduce them to the trails in Newtown. And we host the annual Frost on the Pumpkin Hunter Pace at the end of October.  

Join our community of outdoor enthusiasts in protecting Newtown's forests, meadows and scenic pathways. Become a member and help ensure these irreplaceable landscapes remain undeveloped open spaces for all to responsibly enjoy now and in the future.
