Webinar Outline

Even in recognized ‘horse’ communities, issues can easily arise that affect access to equine land, facilities and trails. Joining or creating an organization will help in addressing issues such as poor trail design, lack of maintenance and general misunderstanding of horses that can result in loss of trail access. Equine and other community organizations and coalitions can accomplish more – educating the community and decision makers about the impacts and benefits of horses, participating in planning, zoning and sustainable design, and ensuring that equestrian trails are part of the recreational infrastructure.

Learning Objectives

  • Equestrian trail issues that require organizational advocacy
  • How to create and sustain an equine organization for your community
  • How an equine organization can educate decision makers and the community about the value of horses and equestrian recreation/trails
  • Factors that lead to successful advocacy vs. trail loss for equestrian trails on public or private land
  • Preserving existing community trails
  • What makes equestrian trails sustainable - design and maintenance
