Great article, now if the bozo's would stay off the trails for a while (unless they are frozen). This time of year I just give up on riding the mountain bike on any local trails, might be time to head to Chickasaw State Park and ride the gravel fire roads...

By Bozo's, are you referring to Horse riders?

I feel like its best when we ride after the horses to pack down the hoof marks before they dry and harden. That's my plan and I'm sticking to it!

As long as the horses are on the WRT it dosen't matter what we do. I have to agree with Busta on this matter :mrgreen:

We rode at 6:30 this morning and the trails were frozen solid, by the time we left at about 9:30 they were thawing rapidly and will be crap for the next few days
