Support the Recreational Trails Program in Your State
Posted on Tue, August 21, 2012
RTP is important to recreational riders all over the country and the AHC is pleased Congress preserved this program in the highway bill.
Unfortunately, the new highway bill allows states to opt-out of the program if they choose. States that opt out would not be able to use RTP money for any other purpose and would lose this money, so there should be little motivation to turn down these funds. However, it remains important that state horse councils let their governors know the RTP program is important to recreational riders in their state.
