Prior to the release of The Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan, player characters were eligible to join the battle in the Ettenmoors at level 40. Once you are at least level 80, visit one of the stable-masters that can take you to the Ettenmoors. One such route can be found at Elrond's stables in the western section of Rivendell, just west of the Trainer area. Speak to stable-master Remros about the Ettenmoors, and he'll send you on your way.
