Multi-Use Trail Etiquette
Whether you are hiking on the single-track trails at Pinckney Rec or biking on the multi-use connecting Lakelands trail, it’s important for everyone to understand safe trail etiquette. All other trail users yield to horses.
How to Safely Approach Horses on Multi-Use Trails
If approaching head on:
Stop! Please stop your movement
Stand Back! Stand back off the trail but do not hide, remain in view of the horse and rider
Speak! Call out in a friendly tone to alert horse and rider of your presense. At this time allow the rider to pass by or they may ask you to pass by
If approaching from behind:
Speak! Alert the rider and horse of your presence
Stop! Ask the rider if it is OK to pass, they may need time to turn their horse around and they may want to walk back and past you
Give Space! Whether you pass or they do, give them plenty of room
