    Equestrians, come on out to help support the trails we and our horses use and love!

    BI Metro Parks & Rec will be working on upgrading the trails at the south end of the park to match the Class One trail system in the majority of Grand Forest West.

    Parking is available in the small lot off Miller Road and along the shoulder. Please use caution when walking to the trailhead at the Miller Road parking lot. Tools will be available, but are in limited supply, so feel free to bring that favorite shovel, rake, or loppers.

    The main arena is being watered from now until Saturday in preparation for the Pony Club certification testing on Sunday. You may ride in the arena during this time, but please do not move the waterwheel or hose. You can turn off the water and move the electrical cord. 

    The pony club certification this Sunday will not result in a closed club for the rest of the members, but the main arena will be closed Saturday evening and Sunday due to jumps being in the arena. Feel free to use the rest of the facilities; just be aware that they will be busier than usual. 

    Thanks!
