To the Editor:
Oh, to be a horse in Ridgefield! They are welcome on our trails, they have beautiful pastures to graze, and their manure can stay where it lies (to be carried into our ponds and rivers when it rains). Why? Because some of the horse owners just don’t want to be bothered with cleaning up after their animals. What would these owners have to do to keep these pollutants out of the water? Grow some grass (to act as a buffer) and keep their manure piles away from wetlands (which are particularly sensitive to pollutants).
