I apologize for being a realist and trying to help fellow horse enthusiasts make improvements before large laws come down the pipe.
I apologize for voicing an opinion which is kept hush-hush in the horse community that I know.
I guess the problem is large laws have already come down the pipe.
I think we all want to be good stewards of the land, but we also want more places to ride, not less, and less regulation, not more.
It only makes sense to manage the land as best one can, but to say a horse hurts the land, and then see entire hill tops removed in West Virginia by large mining operations, forest raped and destroyed by clear cutting and.... well, sorry, but I'm not willing to buy into the whole horses are bad for the land philosophy.
I don't understand the hush-hush comment, can you elaborate more on that please?
No need to apologize to me as you certainly haven't made me angry. You have every right to your opinion and as this is a public (to a degree) forum, every right to voice it. I am in no way offended by it but rather, disagree with the agenda rather than the practice.
Frankly, I think we could learn many things from you.
