Driving Horse Demo Recap
We had a very successful carriage driving demo on May 6 at Crazy Horse Farm. Al and Lisa briefly presented an overview of horse suitability and training, safety precautions, and some different types of 2 and 4 wheel carriages. Comet, Al's Haflinger, was an outstanding subject and was very well behaved! We put him to the wagonette and everyone had a chance to take him for a spin in the arena and experience a well trained driving horse. Thanks so much to our participants and also to Al for hosting!

Please report downed trees and other issues to the appropriate Trail Boss
or firstname.lastname@example.org We are partnering with the county, township and hiking group to maintain trails. Look for upcoming RTA trail clearing sessions and please try to donate a few hours of your time.
Sections of the River Trail by Deer Path Park have been cleared and widened. Hikers have cleared some side trails for foot traffic and have asked that we keep horses on the main trail only. Thanks.
The White Trail up Round Mountain from 629 is now passable. Some work has been done to mitigate the washout from prior storms on that section of trail, although it is still rocky and shoes or boots are recommended. The white trail up to the top of the mountain from Woodschurch Road has downed trees but is passable. The section of the White Trail across from the Stanton General Store remains closed to horses due to previous damage and also downed trees.
The parking lot on Summer Road to access the Pleasant Run Greenway and Lazy Brook Greenway has been expanded to accommodate a few horse trailers.
We have learned that the Cushetunk trail section in Clinton and parking lot by the train tracks on Old Mountain Rd are not open to equestrians. We are pursuing this with the County Parks Advisory Board. For the Readington trails in Cushetunk, you can park at Pickell park.
The parking lot in the field next to tower field has been expanded to accommodate 1-2 horse trailers.
