Lighthoof Video: Share the Trails

Who hasn’t ever crossed paths with a mountain bicyclist while out on the trails? This trail etiquette video reminds us all how everyone can stay safe!

Public lands offer us nearly-unlimited options for places to ride, letting us get into the backcountry with our horses for some peace and quiet. The caveat with public lands is that they’re, well, public — meaning that they belong to all of us for everyone to enjoy. While we like hitting the trails with our horses, others like hiking or biking.

In celebration of those many uses, but while also aiming to increase public awareness not only of right-of-way trail usage but how horses react to things they may not recognize, Sisters Trail Alliance teamed up Central Oregon Trails Alliance, Oregon Equestrian Trails, Backcountry Horsemen and Sawyers With Attitude to produce these public service videos. They remind non-riders to stop, speak and smile to remind horses that they’re not anything to be scared of (plus, how to safely interact with each other!)

Stop Speak Smile

With a grant from the Deschutes Trails Coalition, STA joined forces with Central Oregon Trails Alliance, Oregon Equestrian Trails, Backcountry Horsemen and Sawyers With Attitude to create a trail etiquette video for safe trail sharing. Enjoy!

To further promote public land sharing and harmonious trail usage, Sisters Trails Alliance hosts a variety of special events in addition to volunteering to maintain the trail system in Sister County, Oregon. Among those events is included a bike desensitization day for horses! We love that idea.

Go riding.
