"Competing in this Year's Bedford Pace"

The BRLA Pace held on May 25th is featured today in Martha Stewart's Blog.  "Time for the annual Bedford Pace!  "Twice a year, a horse competition fund-raiser is held in the northern Westchester, New York area called the Bedford Pace. It’s run by the Bedford Riding Lanes Association (BRLA), which is a publicly supported, non-profit organization that maintains and develops more than 100-miles of historic equestrian trails running through beautiful private properties near my Bedford home."  Read more...

BRLA Trails - How to Report an Issue

 If you find a problem on one of the BRLA trails, we would like to take care of it as soon as possible. In the past, many people have informed Marian Torre when a trail issue arose.

We would like to clarify to all that ALL trail issues should be reported to Charlotte Kooyman. She is the volunteer who coordinates the work we perform on the trails.  The best way to communicate with Charlotte is via email to This will enable Charlotte to plan a schedule for the BRLA trailman, which includes both emergency and routine work. Our goal is to perform these tasks in the most efficient and timely way possible. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
