I didn't see where to comment on the Marin Equestrian Plan issue specifically. I'm I missing something?

I would like to comment that horses going on a wet or soft trail can cause significant damage. I've noticed on some of my favorite trails that they have suffered sever erosion and have several pot holes after being ridden by very few horses. When several horses ride a wet or a soft trail can result in an ugly quagmire. Could protection of trails from horse erosion please be seriously considered in the planning process.
