Press Release



From the Glacial Drumlin Horse Trail Association

P.O. Box 82

Deerfield, WI 53531-0082

Ken Carpenter, president

608-576-4104





Local activist Appointed by Governor

                                                By Karen Kroll



Governor Jim Doyle recently appointed local resident Ken Carpenter as the equestrian representative on the State Trails Council (STC). The STC is a 9-member council established in the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and appointed by the Governor for 4-year terms. Meetings are held quarterly in various locations around the state. The Council provides a voice for trail user groups and individuals in the statewide trails program, as well as a forum for solutions to conflicts between and within trail user groups and trail providers. Additionally, the STC provides advice and consultation to the DNR regarding the planning, acquisition, development, and management of trails in Wisconsin. It gives the DNR and legislators the opportunity to hear about trail issues from independent, involved people who share a stake in state trails.



Ken and his wife, Julie, live in Cambridge and share their cozy home with a canine personality, Sadie and two feline egos, Zach and Tigger. Ken works in the corporate sales department at Dunham Express and Julie is a Mary Kay Sales Director. Ken's precious limited leisure time is spent cruising any and every equestrian trail on his go-for-it Arabian gelding, Nails (tough as).

Ken has served as president of Glacial Drumlin Horse Trails Association (GDHTA) since 1999 and is the GDHTA representative on the Wisconsin State Horse Council (WSHC) Board of Directors. He was chosen as the WSHC Horseperson of the Year for 2003--recognition of his contribution to the horse industry for his selfless work in trail advocacy.



In September 2003, Ken was invited to speak at the Mid America Trails & Greenways Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. Speakers from around the country made presentations to land managers, developers, parks personnel, the National Forest Service and numerous non-profit groups. Ken teamed up with Mary Hanson, Outdoor Recreation Planner with the National Park Service and Kandee Haertel, Director of the Equestrian Land Conservation Resource to present, Equestrian Trails: Providing Opportunities at the Local Level. Their presentation was focused on encouraging the idea of considering horse trails in greenspace plans. This networking was a natural extension of what began for him after attending the national meetings of the State Horse Councils Advisory Committee of the American Horse Council.



Ken focuses on good stewardship of lands and fostering land ethics that harmonize the relationship between equestrians, other trail users, and land managers/owners. He believes that good listening skills promote the best channel for cooperation among diverse interest groups.



Ken states, "With wide open spaces fast disappearing to development, I know that we need a proactive approach in conserving natural resources and forging partnerships with state, federal, and local officials. .shared trails are an efficient use of our green spaces, leaving more natural beauty for all" The equestrian community is fortunate to have someone of Ken's caliber and commitment to responsible trail development serving as our voice on the State Trails Council. We may look forward to more responsive representation on the STC.



If you would like to get in touch with Ken about trails or trail issues, you may contact him at: GDHTA, P.O. Box 82, Deerfield, WI 53531-0082 or nail-@charter.net.

President, GDHTA
