To all Equestrians Riding in Pepperell Nissitissit Meadows

** Please **

Keep to the perimeter and do not gallop across the meadows.  

The field is a ground nesting site for birds and hayed during the summer and fall.   And the gopher holes make it dangerous.

When the ground is soft, especially in Spring mud season, please keep to a walk.  This photo, taken in February, 2018, shows the huge divots left even by a walking horse.

Riders galloping on the Nissitissit Meadows when the ground is soft dig up the turf and cause damage.  

This applies to all trails: if your horse is leaving deep hoof prints and throwing up divots, you are going too fast! Hollis closed their trails completely to horses during mud season; please ride responsibly!
