Allow Horses on the Heart of Ohio Trail

I was almost hit today by a careless driver while walking my horse on the road . It has renewed my energy to pursue permission to ride on the trail. 

The Heart of Ohio Trail is enjoyed by many people within Knox County. I ask that Horses be allowed on approximately 6 miles of the Heart of Ohio Trail in Knox County to give equestrians safe access to the county amenities including restaurants, parks and events. This 6 Mile stretch would be 3 miles in either direction from Thayer Road - where the horse park is located . 

I know that a main concern is that our leaders do not believe Knox county residents would feel safe with horses on the trail - however I want to encourage people to sign this petition to show them you would not mind or would even enjoy meeting Horses on the trail. 

Horses are allowed on the trail in other counties and there have been no known safety concerns. Manure happens , and our equestrians should remove manure regularly - just as people who walk their dogs are expected to . 

Allowing Horses on the trail will keep our horses and families safe out of the way of traffic . Please take a moment to sign .
