Oh! my goodness I feel for you and your little guy, we have many trails in and around my town, here in Australia. The trails are open to horse riders, walkers, dog walkers and bike riders and we have no problems. I plan to take my new little guy (my rescue shetland) for regular walks on these trails with my children and the dogs. We also do alot of camping with our horses and the little one will also be coming. I just cannot understand why you could not walk your little guy on at least the walking trail - I am sure the walkers would love to see a Mini walking amoungst them.
