Keep horse trails open

• Become a member of local or national equestrian trail organizations and encourage your breed or sport organization to support trail and open land advocacy.

• Learn how to minimize your impact on trails through programs like Leave No Trace and encourage other riders to do the same.

• Volunteer with groups that maintain trails in your area.

• Foster stewardship with non-equestrian trail users through positive interactions on shared trails.

• Develop respectful relationships and open communication with private landowners.

• Start a riding club in your community. Local clubs help members advocate for trail needs and maintenance projects, provide a regular source of information on new issues and enable riders to establish a common set of rules for trail etiquette.
