Gas Taxes Build Horse Trails

The American Quarter Horse Association ” AQHA ” website reports, ” Last week, Congress passed MAP-21, the multi-year national highway bill. The new law reauthorizes the Federal Highway Administration’s Recreational Trails Program and allocates $85 million in annual funding for the program. RTP is important to recreational riders all over the country and the American Horse Council is pleased Congress preserved this program in the highway bill. ”

These trails are used by Americans all over the country and the benefits to the horse industry are significant.  Now we don’t like taxes anymore than most folks, but sure rather see it spent on horse trails than some of that stuff they call art. Besides no one can  call it ” pork ” when it’s for horses!
