Penny4urThoughts As for the public intoxication, as long as alcoholic beverages are sold at each corner, convenience, and grocery store their will be drunk people of ALL races. This epidemic is not limited to people riding horses or trail rides in general, it affects us daily as a society.

I must agree with you on this one, the majority participants are from Texas we solely believe in the meaning of "Don't Mess With Texas" we bagged our trash in the campsite area. It takes EVERYONE to prove them wrong, stop the fighting, drunkenness, littering and disrespecting people's property. Don't get me wrong Texas has issues also but one thing I know for sure, we don't make threats "You Fight You Go To Jail" trust me you will take a ride and no telling when you will be released. So Y'all come on down to Texas we'll show you the true meaning of trail riding. Let's start with the HLSR (Houston Livestock and Show)seven day ride all the rest is just a ride that isn't going no where but a damn circle! Janet Jackson may show Y'all a little something! LOL

My family lives next door to the location where the trailrides are held. At first, it was fun to hear the music, see the horses, and would even open up our pasture for parking! It has now gotten out of control...MAJOR out of control! If you live, or traveling down Hwy 31 when these things are going on, GOOD LUCK getting through! About 200 horses, all with impaired men and woman, throwing bottles, cans, trash in the yards along the ride. Let's not forget that horses do poop...and there is plenty of that when these things go on! So, now the horses have passed, the trash has been thrown...now it's time for the music! My father has lived down 31 for 70 years, long before the IFBS lodge was there. Yet, they wont give him the respect of turning their music low so that he can sleep. At 2 AM, EVERYONE in that area of 31 is trying to sleep...but SNS riders dont think we need to sleep, because they play their music SO loud until THEY are ready to sleep! one time I called the cops because it was after midnight, and my windows were rattlin because of the bass...cops came and said there was nothing they could do until it was voted on. Now, the music is finally turned off...it's time for everyone to leave. God forbid it be done in an orderly fashion! when the leave, whether on a motorcycle or car...they are WIDE open! Those bikes make SO much noise, and who wants 400 cars with drunk people behind the wheel taking off full blast down your road? Shall I continue about the gun shots?
Please, let's put an end to this! So sorry you guys would loose the IFBS, but there are plenty other places. Ya'll have abused a good thing, and it's time to give us Prairie Laurent back!

White, black, tan, brown, high yellow, albino, blue, purple, pink or red....I don't give a damn what color the people are who go to those trail rides! The fact is they do litter, ride horses drunk, and block the entire rode so that no one can pass going either way! YES indeed put a stop to it!

I certainly understand your concern about IFBS, sir, but you have some facts wrong. SNS was held at Evangeline Downs on the first weekend in November only. They did ride horses on that weekend from EvD to the IFBS hall on Sunday afternoon but then return to EvD. If there are events at IFBS after midnight with loud music throughout the year then that is an issue of IFBS but you are inaccurately accusing SNS for all of the events at IFBS.
