Horse riders need trails, too
To the editor:
I am an avid horseback rider who urges the Londonderry Trailways to please consider having a dirt or gravel pathway for equestrians to ride on. I would be more that happy to volunteer or donate if I knew there would be some type of consideration for horseback riders.
I share many of the same interests — walking, jogging, biking — but horseback riding is one that I hold dear to my heart. To see a trail disappear to pavement is very unsettling. I would hope others feel the same.
I have a strong interest in keeping our towns rural and not allowing them to turn into Boston in a few years. I hope that future horse riding enthusiasts will be allowed to enjoy the same trail ways pedestrians do and that we may share them. Most, if not all, of my trail experiences are quite social and we end up meeting several nice people. My horse, never one to give up a good pat, gladly stops and allows kids to take a picture and adore him. He just eats it up! It takes quite a bit of effort on my part to get him going again.
I hope that you can keep fellow horseback riders such as myself in mind and support a pathway for horses.
