Could some one please explain to me why it is a horse can go on a trail and squeeze off piles bigger than my head every ten feet yet when I take my dog on a trail I am expected to clean up after him. I especially love going too fast to avoid one of the piles and feeling it fling off your back tire onto your back. Let's not forget to mention how horses destroy the trail. I was on my favorite trail yesterday (which is why I am now writing this rant) and sure enough a few horses were on it a couple of days before. Half of the trail was pulverized into sand because they weigh so much they break up the packed dirt, and most of the switchbacks were destroyed because they stepped on the edge, pushing it down. Yet some how horses get a hundred times more respect than mountain bikers. I used to live in Washington state and you might as well wear a coat just for the sole purpose of protecting yourself from crap because it is everywhere and you couldn't do anything about it because they were pretty much the reason for any trails even being in that state, and half of the lawmakers had horses themselves so they had the power. However, I have now moved back to Colorado where there seem to be a lot more mountain bikers. Is there some sort of group that I can join to eradicate horses from the trails?
