Letter to the Editor: the Right to Ride

By MICHELLE DICK
Rigby, Idaho

Editor:

It has been said that "The history of mankind is carried on the back of a horse."

Certainly no other activity is more synonymous with the history of the vast open lands of the West than horseback riding and packing, nor more celebrated within the western identity and lifestyle. Yet every horse owner knows that horsemanship skills are neither easily acquired nor maintained.

To that end the U.S. House of Representatives has passed Bill S781 the "Right to Ride" bill which guarantees access to public lands for saddle and pack stock.

The legislation is now languishing in the U.S. Senates' Energy and Natural Resources Committee. Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) is the chairman.

I implore each and every horse enthusiast, to urge him to support and move this bill out of committee and onto the Senate floor.

Please contact your own Senators to express your support for this legislation.
