Truckee Donner Horsemen (TDH) is a non-profit organization founded in 1962 in Truckee California, whose purpose is to sponsor, cultivate and foster an interest in horses and horsemanship throughout the Truckee, Donner and Sierra areas of the State of California. 

Truckee offers an astonishing number of recreational opportunities in which to partake, all located in the beauty of the Sierra Mountains.  Truckee's rich history began as a rural mountain town with logging, stagecoach stops and horses.  Truckee Donner Horsemen endeavors to preserve, promote and expand our historic and rich equestrian lifestyle.  We offer horse related events, activities and opportunities for volunteers within the local community.  We  diligently strive to provide an environment for equestrian enthusiasts and families to enjoy the outdoors

We present two or three schooling horse shows and Gymkhana shows during the Summer and Fall seasons where both adult and junior participants are welcomed and encouraged to participate, Opportunities are available with and without a horse.  We put together member trail rides and encourage anyone interested to join in these great family adventures which provide an opportunity to go out on horseback to discover and enjoy some of the amazing terrain our Mountain Community has to offer.  The summer schedule includes Horsemanship Clinics, Vaccination/Teeth Floating Clinics, Fourth of July Parade - and so much more!  Keep an eye on our calendar for our events for the season, as well as those in neighboring communities.   

The McIver Arena is available for open riding from 7:30 AM to Dusk.  See TDH Calendar for special events which would supersede arena availability for open riding.  

Please use courtesy in the arena.  Ride at your own risk - helmets are mandatory for riders less than 18 years of age.  If you set up equipment in the arena, please remove from arena when you are finished.  Please clean up after yourself and your horse.  

While membership in TDH is not required to use the arena, your support through membership will assist us in our endeavors to maintain and improve the facility.  Or feel free to "Donate" to help us reach our goals.

Stay tuned for additional information about other activities we are looking to include such as mounted shooting, mounted archery, adult drill team/color guard.  

We hold monthly general meetings and encourage anyone interested in club opportunities to attend.  

WHEN:  6:00 - 7:00  Every Third Tuesday of the month 

WHERE:  Currently Zoom, Meetings or in person at McIver Arena

As with all non-profit organizations, our success relies greatly on the dedication of our members, volunteers and their willingness to help with club endeavors.  Please see our membership opportunities and join us!  

Any monetary donations are greatly needed and very much appreciated to keep the McIver Arena open.  We are working diligently on collaboration efforts to make safety and aesthetic improvements to the arena grounds in this upcoming season.
