[RC] status reportoon Oconee WMA ride - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Peggy Clark tlcsporthorses@xxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Everyone is aware how much our sport depends on having land to ride on.  Last 
week, that topic really hit our home.  Our DNR guy called to notify us that the 
Georgia WRD has decided, in their infinite wisdom(?) that unless your wildlife 
management area has existing, designated public use horse trails, there are NO 
horses allowed.  No special use permits, no bikers, no rock climbers, no 
orienteering.  They don't want you there.  The lower level DNR guys are mad, 
because they want people to use the land.  So...the OCONEE ride is now, 
officially out of existence.  I appreciate everyone who came to ride with us 
over the years and hope all of you ride well and safely!  Keep your ears and 
eyes open...if it can happen in Georgia, it can happen in your state.
Thanks, Peggy
