OVETS was in direct response to the  National Symposium on Horse Trails in
Forest Ecosystems held in the fall  at Clemson to bring this information to
the Ohio Valley area.  The symposium was put together in a short period of
time  but it was successful and reached a wide audience.
Planning is underway for next year.  If you'd like to help please email
