RE: [RC] re: fees on public lands - Bob Morris

In Idaho, a number of years past, we tried to get the Legislature to set
up a fee system comparable to the OHV and Boating fees. The majority of
the horsemen were very much in favor of such a fee. It would have been a
"trailer" sticker" enforceable only when parked on public lands. 

It was soundly rejected,

However, many of us do not ride in "state parks."  In fact, most of us  
don't.  And so, no, we don't pay any annual fees.  We do ride on BLM,  
USFS and Bureau of Reclamation lands.  We do pay taxes like every one  
else, but we do not pay any kind of special annual equestrian trail  
access fee for those lands like the OHV people have to do.  BTW, this  
isn't just for regular DMV licensing/highway use.  It can be an  
unlicensed atv or dirt bike and they still have to have a green  
sticker to go on public lands.  They all pay for a "green sticker" and  
can't ride on those public trails that they pay taxes for, too, unless  
they get their green sticker.  I knew that horse folks would have a  
hissy fit if anyone suggested that they should pay some kind of annual  
fee, but I just felt you should at least be aware that these other  
uses groups do pay a fee on top of their regular taxes.  Cindy
