Scooping Poop!!!

Hi Everyone,

I was reading "Horse & Rider" (UK Version) earlier today, and to put it bluntly I was stunned. There was an article in there about various dog owners that had written to a local paper regarding, why do they have to scoop poop when horse riders don't.
It said that the Dog owners had said that Horse riders were too snooty to pick poop!!! They obviously don't know many horse enthusiasts!
As the article said, "Are we to start carrying a bucket and scoop around?" And then the argument progressed to horse poo is just grass, hay, all biodegradable, and without the odour of dog poop........

Could any of you picture yourselves with a horse size pooper scooper??? :roll:

I would rather step in horse poop than dog poop anyday. There is a difference in the effect on the environment, horse poop is a fertilizer and dog poop will kill the grass. I was at a campground that had a seperate area for horse campers but it was full so we had to park with "regular" campers. My horse just happened to relieve herself while walking through the camp on the road. A fellow turned and gave me the nasty evil eye but there were people walking dogs all over and not picking up after them. I mentioned it to the park ranger, wondering if I should have done something. He said that he didn't understand why some people get upset at the horse manure since it is just grass and basicly breaks down to dirt and not to worry about it. I do worry about it thoough because I'm afraid that "those people" will try to close the parks to equestrian use. I'm not sure if there is an answer as to what we as horse people can do about it. We always clean our manure up from any camp we stay at. Sorry this is long but it is a worry of mine.

Yeah, very good suggestion. I use to ride in an arena that acted like a green house so we ALWAYS had to get ALL the poop up RIGHT away.

I think the reason that people complain about horse crap is because its big... so its easier spotted. I used to run along a trail behind my highschool where people would walk their dogs, and there was a farm nearby and htey would ride their horses along it as well. You could always spot the horse piles, but you had to actually look for the dog poop.

I think dog poo is a little slicker too so easier to slip in, so it does pose more of a safety hazard on a running trail.

Edit: If you slipped in the dog poo and fell in the horse poo you would have a softer landing.
