Brunes Mill 

The Trail Riders of Houston is excited to be able to offer you a membership to the beautiful Brunes Mill property.

The membership we are able to offer for Brunes Mill is a predetermined schedule of up to 30 weekends where we have full access to ride the property, camp, and come and go as we please during those set weekends.  

A weekend is defined as a Saturday and Sunday, unless it’s a holiday weekend in which we hope to be able to open the property for three or four full days.

A TRH Membership is required before or at the same time as a Brunes Mill membership. Only head of household needs to apply for this membership. For insurance purposes you have to become part of the TRH club.

Two types of Brunes Mill memberships will be offered: ONLINE STORE

  • Single Rider ($200.00/year) – a single rider with no access for spouse or children (riders)
  • Family Membership ($400.00/year) – includes spouse and children; children are defined as age 18 or under.
  • Note: children currently enrolled in school may remain under the parents membership up to the age of 25 years old.
  • TRH membership ($45.00/year) is required to become a member of Brunes Mill.
  • TRH members can come out as Guests for $25/day/rider

      This schedule is subject to change.  We had to step on some of the "rain-out" dates posted by local race series, but that's just the way things are.  Please remember TRH caters to all riders and not just racers, so we will do whatever possible to keep the dates we've published.
