The Equestrian Trails Patrol (E.T.P.) is a statewide organization of trail riders who have been deputized
by CSHA. They have NO police power.
The Equestrian Trails Patrol's duties are to thoroughly acquaint
themselves with the trails to
be patrolled, facilities available (both for
normal an emergency use), trail rules, appropriate ordinances and
State trail regulations.
The Trail Aid Patrol is established for reporting trail conditions,
assisting other trail users, and observing and offering assistance based on a certified level of training completed; but
the authoritative aspect.
