At a meeting with a group of equestrians on January 11, 2012, the Eastern Trail Municipal District lifted the moratorium on horseback riding on the Kennebunk-Arundel-Biddeford section of the Eastern Trial until March 1, 2012, with the understanding that members of the local equestrian community will work with the ETMD to define, by that date, a set of rules and responsibilities to govern their use of the trail, and which they would publicize and support to ensure that the trail can be maintained for all users.

The equestrian community plans on developing rules for equestrians use of the trail to present at the next ETMD meeting on February 8th. FMI, contact the ETA by email or by phone at 207-284-9260.
