N.D. State Parks Offer Horseback Riding Annual Pass
North Dakota Ag Connection - 05/07/2012
The North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department is now offering a $30 annual horse pass for the four North Dakota state parks -- Sully Creek, Fort Abraham Lincoln, Fort Ransom and Little Missouri -- that offer horseback riding trails among their many other amenities.
A daily fee of $6 per horse is charged by the parks. The NDPRD $30 annual pass allows a rider to take advantage of trails in all four parks from May 1 to April 30 without being charged a daily fee. A person with an annual pass bringing multiple horses into the park will be charged the daily fee for any additional
horses without an annual pass. Riders must provide the annual or daily permit upon request of park staff. The pass was made available at the request of horse owners who make several visits to the state parks in the course of a year to ride their horses. The pass provides unlimited access to these parks with horse
Livestock feed used in state parks must be certified as noxious weed-seed-free. Out-of-state horses must have a current health certificate issued by their veterinarian within the last 30 days. The horse must also have certification of a negative Coggins test for equine infectious anemia done within the last 12 months.
