Friends & Ambassador Award
Keeping horse trails open in Nebraska is not just the responsibility of land managers. In many situations, it is left up to those who are passionate about trails. People who volunteer their time, talent and in some cases, muscle, to maintaining trails for all horse enthusiasts to enjoy.
A friend of the trails might be a volunteer who freely gives his or her talents to our organization or a trail or trail head for all to enjoy. It could be a park superintendent who has gone above and beyond to accommodate horses and horse traffic. Or it could be a benefactor or educator for our organization or the trails.
If you have someone in mind who you believe is worthy of this prestigious Friend & Ambassador Award, please submit the nomination for recognition by the Nebraska Horse Trails Committee. This award will be presented at The Horse Trail Riding Expo in March. Nominations must be received by January 10, 2019.*
