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.  

This award will be presented at the 2020 Horse Trail Riding Expo.  Nominations are now closed.
