State parks, National Forests, etc for wheeling... was pondering last night...

... about how all of these places have horse trails where anyone can just trailer a horse to the bridle parking, saddle up, and take off on a number of trails. I really don't think that is fair to some of us who just wish to take our rigs on those same types of trails! I know they are worried about idiots with atvs racing up and down the trails, spooking the horses and tearing up the place. That is why they could have an ORV permit, where you have to have to have your rig inspected to get the permit, which would have to be displayed front and rear on the rig. There would be a speed limit, and those "trail only" rigs with no/loud exhaust would not be permitted. Exhaust systems with nothing louder than a turbo muffler would be required, to keep the peace with the horse groups.

The fee for the permits could be dedicated to trail maintenance and patrolling. Anyone reported by other trail users or patrol could face permit loss and fines.

Is this a good idea? Is this even a possibility to be done?

I like the idea, just don't know how you'd get it to the right people to do something about it.
