- trail repairs + horses??
If they are really big puddles then yes. The horses will end up sliding around on the branches if they are large. As above try doing half or a narrow section that is good enough for cyclists. If you cover the trail the first horse to go over will end up kicking them all over the place anyway.
It is worth considering what kind of ground it is and how the horsists will move. They prefer to go faster up longer gentle rises where the ground is free of rocks. If it is rocky/very soft or downhill they are more likely to be walking so it would cause less issued.
Is there anyway you can get some drainage in (dig a channel or hole to the side) to encourage the water away?Posted 5 years agofatsimon mk2Member
quick question off to do some trail repairs to a new bit of trail added to my local loop this bit of trail is very near a horse riding centre and quite often used by them the trail is on MOD land problem ive got is that there are a few big and I mean big muddy puddles/small lake landmarc the MODs grounds people have been in the area cutting down small trees and I was going to use left over branchs to fill puddles so it can be ridden without widening trail i.e putting branches across puddles/mud hole and packed down into them is this going to cause problems for the horse as don’t really want to get into conflict with them??Posted 5 years ago
