Welcome to the
Haney Horsemen Association
The Haney Horseman Association (HHA) is a non-profit organization consisting entirely of volunteers. We are committed to equestrian trail stewardship in the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows area.
Originally under the banner of The Ridge Riders (nickname for the Maple Ridge Riding & Driving Club, formed in 1942), the Haney Horsemen have been coordinating with local government for over 50 years to enhance, maintain, improve and preserve for future generations the network of 100+ km municipally-sanctioned equestrian and hiking trails.
It was in the early 1960s when we first began supporting development of the equestrian trail network by volunteering to build and maintain the trails, researching, applying for and securing funding grants, and co-operating with local government and land management agencies to identify appropriate trail routes.
In response to the new Maple Ridge Official Community Plan (Schedule F), the Ridge Riders began planning in 1978 to update the group’s formal structure to enable us to better serve our core purpose as trail stewards and builders. The group became the “Haney Horsemen Association” when it was registered as a non-profit society in January 1981. With that change and the new service contract with the district, we could meet the community’s need for ongoing maintenance on existing trails and the creation of essential linkages between trails.
