Public submissions have closed and data is being collated from the trial. The current proposal is to amend the management plan to allow riding to continue on the trails until 31/12/18 while the result of the trial is being evaluated. Riding on them has been prohibited since the end of the trial. I would suggest the conclusion is a foregone.

Citing OEH at http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/t...gement-in-parks/wilderness-horse-riding-trial :

I did read the amendment was to allow riding until the end of the year but it seems their minds are made up. Would be just as easy to wait until the end of the year than go through all this drama.

So, the inner city Sydney wilderness foundation are opposed?

How do I lodge a vote to support horse riding in the park?

What have horse riders ever done to you?

They spent millions building the trails but someone 500k's away doesn't like it.

Go fix Sydney. It's a hole.

I hope you have a suggestion for collecting the horse seed bearing excreta - this is becoming a major problem where horses are brought in from other parts of the country.
