Equine Land Conservation Resource (ELCR) is pleased to announce that ELCR and My Horse University, in partnership with eXtension Horses, will be hosting a webcast on creating and maintaining a private trail system.

The webcast will be held on November 29 at 7:00 PM EST. To register visit http://myhorseuniversity.com/resources/webcasts/trail_partnerships.
Based in the Tryon, N.C., area, with a lifelong interest in horses, agriculture and nature Ms. Moyer has represented and served on the boards of many community-based nonprofits during her career. Now retired, she focuses her efforts on preserving land and equestrian access. She has served on the Board of the Foothills Equestrian Trails Association, and focuses on its easement program to protect the trails of this highly successful local trail system.
“As private land changes hands and concerns over liability issues increase, horsemen and women often find the access to the private land they once enjoyed for equine activity is increasingly threatened,” said Holley Groshek, ELCR Executive Director. “For that reason, access to private land for equine activity is one of the six core areas of our mission at ELCR.” A vast array of information on equine access to private land is available on the ELCR website.
