2014 marks the Year of the Horse – part of a 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac and calendar. Celebrations are occurring all over the world, and homage is paid to the horse. The western tradition of horseback riding on Open Space trails has a long and rich history. Help celebrate the Year of the Horse with three special Share the Trail events involving Volunteer Equestrian Patrollers, Park Rangers, and equestrian clubs such as the Buffalo Bill Saddle Club, Front Range Backcountry Horsemen, Intermountain Horse Association, and Jefferson County Horse Council. Fun and educational displays will center around trail etiquette between equestrians, bikers, and hikers. Participants will take away an understanding of horses and how safety is a rider’s primary concern. Participants are encouraged to ask questions of the Patrollers and Rangers to learn about sharing the trail and interacting with horses. There will be a Horse Height demonstration at which people can sit atop a suspended barrel ‘horse’ to understand the height and unsteadiness a rider feels on a mount. Children are encouraged to attend and learn.
