I used to take my horse to our county fair for a week of fun and showing each summer with my 4-H club. The horse barns at the fairgrounds were directly across the "road" from the cow barns. The saddle horse kids would all be really prompt about cleaning up piles in the road, but the cow people would also use the same road. Now, there is a definite, erm, difference, between horse manure and cow, erm, mud. We had fair officials all but yelling at us to clean up after the horses, when the mess came from the cows all along! Grr. We bit our tongues and did a favor for the cow people. I have since given up on the fair. It seems like the rules get more outlandish and anti-saddle horse every year. (Once I heard that one of the fair board members voiced a desire that the fair would be better with no saddle horses. I am only to happy to oblige, at least with my boy.)

It sounds like to me that these people just want an excuse not to have to clean up after their dogs. Anybody who knows anything at all, knows how ignorant that comment is. Dog poop has a smell that will make your stomach churn and a texture that's even worse. I think it is hilarious that someone would make the comment that horse people are too snooty to pick up poop. That's a joke!!! Every since I got Major, I have cleaned up more poop than I ever thought possible. And if I'm not shoveling it out of a stall, I'm spreading it somewhere or standing in it hahaha

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

I don't know about everyone else but I wouldn't complain about dog poo if the dogs did it in the road , and I would complain about horse poo if they did it on the pavement.
Most of the footpaths and parks in the UK are off limits to horses anyway, It just seems to me to be another case of townies coming to the countryside and telling us how to live.

When riding through a neighborhood, town or on a trail that is well used by runners or walkers it is only polite to clean up your horses poo. We keep plastic bags in the saddle bags and just scoop it up and put it in the nearest garbage or move it over to the side of the trail.
The controversys of trail sharing is a complete other thread, however, it is important to be aware of the impact our horses have on the environment we share with others. Non-horsey people and town folks just don't look at that big pile of poo as a bio-degradable gift from nature when it is left in front of their driveway or in the middle of the road.

It's a big lack of public understanding. To them it's poo and it smells so it's bad. They wouldn't give it a second thought.
