Partnerships blaze public riding trails

Miami County’s Park District added equine trails to its list of offerings with the Nov. 8 opening of four miles of trails in the 200-acre Honey Creek Preserve.

Riders and their horses along with project supporters gathered at the trail head near the Preserve entrance off Ohio 202 just east of Tipp City for a morning ribbon cutting and trail dedication.

The trail is the second public facility to open in the county with an effort started a few years ago by the Miami County Equine Initiatives Task Force.

The first public trail opened in 2012 in Tipp City’s Kyle Park, a cooperative effort between the city, its park advisory board and the MCEITF.

The Honey Creek Preserve trail also is the result of a partnership with MCEITF, Scott Myers, park district executive director, said.

“To get to this point is a very exciting day for the park district, a very exciting day for Miami County and a very exciting day for horse lovers,” Myers said.

“Being able to partner with the task force, they have educated us and our staff quite a bit. They have been a great partner,” he added. “As the park district approaches our 50th anniversary in a couple of years, you will see more partnerships because it makes for better quality of life here in Miami County.”
