Equestrian training area full public access. Good nonimation candidate or not?


OK interesting one. And yes selecting a horse training area carried risk. But hear me out.

The local Horse yard at the entrance to the park has a POI. The local horse yard is open to the public.

To get to the park the horses walk past numerous POIs and then The horses have a dedicated track around the park with no barriers. Alongside the pedestrian paths. As in adjacent to each other.

The park has a dedicated area for lunging, dressage, show jumping and general flat arena work. This is not closed to the public. It has a wire fence to stop the dogs getting in. But joe blow can walk around.

So in my infinite wisdom (don't go there) I nominated the show jumping, lunging and dressage as areas.

I also followed Criteria. Do not nominate on the sport field. Tick. couple of yards back. Close to the pedestrian tracks around the area.

Reminder - the whole area is open to the public.

It has been rejected for (and consistently) for Natural feature??? Which I don't get.

And Pedestrian access. Which I sort of get but reject as it is not a closed space. It is a public park. Nominating as followed criteria. But yeah. People (not like me) are probs worried by anything with four legs. But hey. I have been attacked and chased by dogs not a horse so I see no probs doubly so :-)

Of course with the other criteria I have no visibility

What are peoples thoughts and should I try again?? Or am I nuts to even consider it :-)

I look forward to your insights
