BRLA Trail Rules

We would like all our members to take note of our organization's Trail Rules, in particular, the rule which requires all dogs to be on leash when on the trails. This rule has been in place for over 40 years, for good reason. Loose dogs can surprise horses and cause spooking, bolting, and associated behaviors in our horses. In addition, loose dogs can be accidentally kicked by horses. Not all walkers and riders feel equally comfortable when confronted by a loose dog. Our landowners and members have a reasonable expectation that dogs will be kept on leash, because it is clearly stated in our Trail Rules. Dogs are welcome on the BRLA trails, but they must be on a leash. We ask that you continue to enjoy the beautiful trail system with your precious pet, securely on a leash for every one's safety and comfort. We have been asked by the Beaver Dam Sanctuary to help enforce this courteous policy that is in the best interest of riders, walkers, landowners, dogs and horses. Non-adherence to this Trail Rule is likely a violation of our liability policy.

If you have any questions, please contact Lara Ward at reportatrail@bedfordridinglanes.com and we will be happy to address any concerns.
