Temperatures dropped as Bobbie Pope rode a quarter horse through lush bamboo-like tunnels to escape the blazing Norco heat this week, something she won't be able to do next month when clearing of the well-known trails starts.

Some people in Horsetown USA oppose the arundo removal project because it will destroy longtime riding trails used daily by dozens of equestrians.

The arundo removal and restoration project is being headed by the Army Corps of Engineers as part of...

Oh jaaaaack!!! I see that new avatar!!! That means you're baaaack!!!! Yay! Most horse owners aren't all that sensitive to the environment.... they're into their horses and pretty much stick to other horse people and that's about it. Not all... just most I've met and I'm around a lot of horse people. These horse people are upset about the loss of their trail tunnels but 10 to 1 odds they'd look at you as if you were out of your mind if it was even suggested they pick up their horse poops to help avoid the spread of invasives along trails or so joggers could share trails with them. Horse people aren't all that considerate around me. Maybe it's different when away from big cities but.... around here they ignore no trespassing signs... they don't pick up any horse poops and.... they don't exactly yield the right of way to pedestrians even if the pedestrian is on their own property that the rider is cutting through.
