CARMEL, Ind – Horses will not be galloping on Monon Trail.
A proposal to allow the four-legged trotters on the greenway died quickly during a Carmel City Council committee meeting.
“It’s a done issue,” Councilman Ron Carter, who chairs the committee, said Tuesday.
City officials are working on a new safety ordinance for the Monon Trail and other public trails and streets. Horses will not be a part of that ordinance that will be presented to the full council on Nov. 4.
Carmel City Judge Brian Poindexter raised the issue, proposing consideration of allowing “recreational use” of horses along the paved trail within city limits. Poindexter, who refused to comment last week, could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.
