Re: [RC] Cronin Ranch - Diane Trefethen

I think what galls us all the most is that too many times those who make the decisions are mainly concerned about their political images, know nothing about the subject they are addressing so depend on the advice of their wealthy backers and/or that of the liberal, ecological types. Then they dictate useless, counterproductive, FRUSTRATING rules that either unfairly elevate the rights of other groups over equestrians or eventually yield the opposite result of what was ostensibly intended. Furthermore, if they had only bothered to speak with those of us familiar with the problem(s), they would have had intelligent, cogent solutions to implement. So the result is that in the short run, we are angered and thwarted in OUR legitimate desires and in the long run, the stated goals of the "project" are often not realized... a truly lose-lose situation.

We see this over and over on our trails. We lose them because the ultra-rich and/or "ultra ecologists" give money and offer up half-baked ideas which are then accepted, ie, horses irreparably damage the trails, horse feces and horse hay are the PRIMARY causes of the spread of noxious weeds, cattle damage the ground and kill oak trees, competitions, PER SE, are damaging to all ecosystems.
