"I don't want to run you over". Sounds like someone either doesn't know how to control their horse or they don't want to share the trail with another user.

1. I think the science shows horses damage trails more than bikes but.. that said
2. This now appears to be a one time activity much like the biking on that same section - a one time activity.
I think that those in the area concerned about damage should watch and review but perhaps in this one instance the DNR needs a bit of slack? after all if they gave the bikers a one time pass on a hike-only trail it's tough for them to reject horses
caveat- we may indeed find that the one time activity is indeed too damaging..
Just my .02
(what ever happened to cent signs? )
It is a one time event -- with 800 hooves going over a very poorly cut fall line trail with some of the biggest singletrack grades I've ever seen, and it is mostly sandy loam.
Imagine what would happen if 800 hooves went over some of those back bowl sections of Yankee in a day, Dennis. Think that would be much of a problem for the trail?
