Last month more than 35 people spoke at the Open Space Board of Trustees (OSBT) meeting, with 29 speakers in favor of trail access to horses at the Joder Arabian Ranch along with parking (this was a huge response). Even more incredible was that the OSBT and City Council received more than 350 e-mails on this topic.
Thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond on this. Your response was completely unprecedented, and it shows the amazing level of support for equestrian access and the horse community’s personal involvement with the future development of the Joder Arabian Ranch.
The future of the Joder Arabian Ranch is still in the planning stages and the discussion is still going on. The OSBT has scheduled another meeting this Wednesday, January 14th.
It is important to let OSBT and the Open Space Board of Trustees know how you feel about the Joder Arabian Ranch and trail access and parking for horse recreational use. Remember if you don’t say anything, they won’t know how you feel about the future of this special property.
