A small (but mighty) group of HHA volunteers installed the new Trail Obstacle Course at Horseman’s Park this past week. These trail obstacles are a great tool for teaching inexperienced horses and/or riders how to handle logs, bridges and tricky terrain like that found on our Maple Ridge trails.
The project was coordinated by Dianne Stoesz, HHA President, and funded by a grant from Horse Council BC’s Equestrian Trails Fund. Installation had originally been scheduled for spring 2020 but, as with so many things this past year, it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited that, at last, the result of this collaboration between the City of Maple Ridge and the Haney Horsemen Association is complete and ready for riders to enjoy!
Some photos from installation day are available in the photo album, below, along with some action shots of the first equestrians to try out the new obstacle course.
