Oklahoma horse lovers look for a ticket to ride

"So volunteers are most important.”

If the job is too big for the local volunteers, Folks said, riders from elsewhere will come to the rescue.

All the trails at Sportsman Lake in Seminole were planned and developed by a number of volunteers, Hamilton said.

There are more than 30 miles of equestrian trails that wind around most of the 329-acre city-owned lake. There is an equestrian camp that includes showers and rest rooms, electricity, water and a place to tether horses.

At Stillwater’s Lake Carl Blackwell, volunteers are vital to operating a 48-mile trail operated by Oklahoma State University.

"Volunteers work out well for us,” said park ranger Chad Meisenburg. "Volunteers take ownership and pride in the trails. They are a passionate group of people.”
