Paper Summary/Abstract: 

Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) area managers and administrators have noted a lack of usable information about horse trails and horseback riders on MDC lands. Managers need to know what horseback riders want and what they would accept regarding trail development and maintenance, facility needs, and conflict management with other types of users. Managers also need more information on who the riders are, how often they recreate, and what they require for a quality recreational experience.
