by admin on January 8, 2018

Fri 9 AM Jacobson Center at the Iowa State Fair Ground

Join us for an Equestrian Trails Conference on Friday, the first day of the Iowa Horse Fair Friday, April 6, 2018, at the Fairgrounds in Des Moines. We will meet in the upper room above the office at the Jacobson Center. There will be two sessions in the morning and three sessions in the afternoon.

Cost is $10 and $8 for Iowa Horse Council members. Payment will be required for the two-morning sessions. Horse Fair wristbands will also be available. Afternoon sessions open to anyone with a horse fair wristband.

Morning sessions will be an open forum with the DNR to discuss problems and future of Iowa’s public trails and campgrounds. The second session will be a panel discussion called “End of Trail”. We will discuss humanly putting down a horse and how to dispose of that horse. The panel will consist of an experienced veterinary, DNR regulations, owner of a horse cremation facility and a crafter who makes keepsakes from horse hair.

Afternoon sessions will be with the DOT concerning regulations for trail rider’s trucks and trailers, trail etiquette, and helmet construction, safety and free fittings.

Watch the IHC Trails and Iowa Horse Council Facebook pages and the Iowa Horse Council website www.iowahorsecouncil.org for more details on the sessions.
