The Eastern Competitive Trail Ride Association (ECTRA) was founded in 1970 and is a non-profit organization vitally interested in encouraging the growth and understanding of distance riding and driving. Our goal is achieved through rider education and sanctioning standardized, veterinarian judged competitions throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region.
