Thanks Dolores for the little note about our trail ride Saturday promoting the National Day Of The Horse. Some ten or so riders plus about fifteen walking members and supporters of the San Ramon Valley Horsemen started out from the Sycamore Valley Road Park-N-Ride trail access. We rode and walked the trail to Alamo while telling folks that we passed it was the National Day Of The Horse. The following two days proved how fortunate we were to enjoy one of the last beautiful days of fall weather before the much needed rain arrived. Everyone with an interest in horses, riding, western culture, or socializing in those wild western outfits should do a web search for San Ramon Valley Horsemen then follow where the trail leads.

Dear neighbors (taken from Iron Horse corridor e-exchanges)
The EPA has established horse manure as a hazardous material (hazmat) based on the pathogen and various pharmaceuticals that migrate in runoff from trails and saddling areas to our creeks and streams or through absorption to our water tables.
Beverly Lane is our East Bay Regional Parks District representative and should be asked to provide District measures in this FORUM that deal with horse manure's hazmat risks.

Please note that the riders on the Iron Horse Trail on the Day of the Horse took great care to clean up after the horses with a bucket on wheels and shovel.......
Other users of the Iron Horse Trail seem to enjoy the sight of the horses!
This is in response to Jennifer Crest's worry about horse manure being hasmat risks.
