The Iowa Horse Council Trails Committee will be hosting an Equestrian Trails Conference Friday, April 4, 2014 in conjunction with the Iowa Horse Fair at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, Iowa.
This conference is meant for both trail managers and trail users, to explore together, the problems and challenges of maintaining and creating sustainable equestrian trails. Soft trail managers and users can come together to learn how to partner-up to keep our Iowa equestrian trails in good riding condition.

- Preventive Trail Maintenance 101 – Save Money and Time

- Keynote Address
Mark your calendars now and plan to attend the Equestrian Trails Conference. Together we will make Iowa trails a great place to ride!
