Webcast: How to Create & Sustain a Private Trail System

Equine Land Conservation Resource (ELCR) is pleased to announce that ELCR and My Horse University, in partnership with eXtension Horses, will be hosting a webcast on creating and maintaining a private trail system. The webcast, featuring ELCR Board of Directors member Dot Moyer, will explore what is needed to create, maintain and sustain a successful private trail system. The webcast will be held on November 29 at 7:00 pm EST. Click here to register today!

Based in the Tryon, N.C. area, with a lifelong interest in horses, agriculture and nature, Ms. Moyer has represented and served on the boards of many community-based nonprofits during her career. Now retired, she focuses her efforts on preserving land and equestrian access. She has served on the Board of the Foothills Equestrian Trails Association, and focuses on its easement program to protect the trails of this highly successful local trail system.

As private land changes hands and concerns over liability issues increase, horsemen and women often find the access to the private land they once enjoyed for equine activity is increasingly threatened. Building local coalitions and maintaining relationships are imperative to ensure that equestrians have access to private lands for fox hunting and recreational riding. This webinar will inform equestrians on how to advocate for horse use, develop relationships and work with private land owners to keep trails open to equestrians.

Access to private land for equine activity is one of the six core areas of our mission at ELCR. A vast array of information on equine access to private land is available on the ELCR website. To learn more, click here.
