The Federal Equestrian Design Guidebook for Trails, Trailheads, and Campgrounds that were handed out as door prizes at the IHC Annual General Meeting will also be available at the Equestrian Soft Trails Conference. Use these guidebooks as an intro to meet your favorite and local trail managers, and start a discussion. Offer to give them the books, invite them to the trails conferences, volunteer for work days, and ask if there is a friends group of the trail in your location that you can join or start up to work with the trail managers to support the trail.
These books are free, call 202-366-5013 (Federal Highway Administration) or let us know, and we can help you with this, too. It is also easily downloadable (and free!) at http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/recreational_trails/publications
