I like to ride horses.
What can I do to Keep Invasive Species Out?

Horseback riding — and horse camping — are becoming increasingly popular ways for people to explore the beautiful Adirondack region.

There are miles of horseback riding trails for all ages and abilities. By following these four simple steps you can do your part to protect your Adirondacks for generations of riders to come:

  • Stay on designated trails to avoid picking up seeds you don't want to spread.
  • Be sure to thoroughly clean your horse and gear of mud and debris after each trip.
  • Remember to buy and use local hay to feed your horses when visiting the Adirondacks.
  • Clean up and dispose of any excess hay from feeding or resting areas after each trip.

Go the extra mile by learning to identify and report invasive species that you spot along the way.
