Got Mud: Tackling Mud and Erosion on Equestrian Trails
August 31 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Managing mud and erosion are two significant challenges frequently encountered on equestrian trails. The presence of mud on trails poses risks such as slippery riding conditions, potential loss of horses’ shoes or boots, and overall unpleasant riding experiences. Soil erosion can result in uneven trail surfaces, which further jeopardizes the safety of riders. Moreover, erosion can contribute to the contamination of nearby water bodies such as creeks, rivers, and lakes.
This webinar aims to address these challenges by focusing on effective construction techniques, recommended products, and best management practices for trail planning, construction, and maintenance. By implementing these strategies, participants will learn how to minimize and mitigate the occurrence of mud and erosion. The webinar will also feature real-life examples and valuable insights from trail systems that have successfully tackled these issues on equestrian trails.
