25005 Sign of 100000 Goal

The LeGrand Reynolds Horsemen’s Camp will soon no longer be available to the individual equestrian for camping. This property has been the one and only site available to horse riders in the State of RI since 1969 when the former Beach Pond Campsite was set aside for horse activities and camp use. Over the years with the help of the equestrians the RI Federation of Riding Clubs has put in a riding arena, shelter, picnic tables and done continuous maintenance on the grounds to assist DEM on the upkeep of the camp. The state now wants to open our camping to all user groups and restrict the usage to only groups that have insurance of a million dollars on top of requiring a permit that would need to be requested a minimum of 30 days in advance. This would eliminate all individual horse people that are not connected to an organization. There are multiple camping facilities available throughout the state that other user groups are welcome in. Horses do not have that same advantage. Doing this would stop horse camping in our state for many and push our own residents, taxpayers, to have to go out of state to camp with their horses. This would also take from the local economy where gas, food, etc. may have been purchased.

This campground is more than a piece of land. It is a part of rider’s family history. Families have grown camping with horses here. Don’t take this away from them!! Let DEM know you support the equestrians keeping the one place they have under the terms it always has been.

DO NOT DONATE! We are only looking for signatures please!
