Horseback Riding

  • David Huddart


Due to the scale and varied environmental impact of horseback riding on the environment, its increasing popularity, and the conflict with other recreational users, it needs to be emphasised to horseback riders that for continued access to wilderness areas, national and state parks, and conservation areas, best-practice management is imperative. This includes planning trail location and design; trail construction and maintenance; visitor regulation such as confinement, the amount and timing of use; education to improve user knowledge and change user behaviour using codes of conduct circulated through interpretative information, public lectures, and discussions through the internet, associations, and clubs; and greater policing and enforcement by management of strategies in place. Where unacceptable impacts occur and significant conservation and biodiversity values are threatened, prohibiting horseback riding completely in certain areas might be necessary.
