Should horses be allowed in Wright Co. parks?

Only two of Wright County’s 29 parks are open to equestrian use. A motion passed on a 3-2 vote Sept. 23 will close one of those, Stanley Eddy park, to horses. The two commissioners who voted against the change said this is unfair, and pointed out that horse owners are taxpayers too, and should have more access to county parks. What do you think?

    Wow this was not a fun story to read. They closed Stanley Eddy to horse riders?? My family loved that park and it was close to home, which it is hard to find parks with nice trails in our area.
    What was the reason for voting to close it? They don’t list that here.
