The Trail Symposium offers every topic imaginable about trail riding, horse camping, and the preservation of our trails.
The majority of horse owners are trail riders — and trail riders today are continuously challenged with losing trails throughout the country. At Horse Expo, trail enthusiasts gather to discuss how to keep our horse trails open and maintained, now and in the future, and how to work in harmony with state and federal officials who oversee many of these trails.
The Trail Symposium covers all aspects about horse camping, including trailering advice, portable corrals, feeding and watering in a camping situation, what the U.S. Forest Service requires regarding feed and hay, and wildlife information.
