Call to Action

The City of San Marcos needs equestrian representation on the Trails Advisory Committee (TAC)

Do you or someone you know use the San Marcos Trails system? These multi use trails are enjoyed by many equestrians and our voice is needed to advocate for shared use that ensures horse friendly trails. The process to be on the Trails Advisory Committee is simple.

Contact Taylor Oshinski ~ ~ to receive an application. The TAC meets 4 times per year.

The TAC discusses multi-use trail needs of the city and the City Master Trail Plan. The TAC also encourages community involvement in development, maintenance and use of the trail system and bicycle facilities within the city. Groups like the equestrian community, mountain bike and hiking communities and other outdoor enthusiasts are ideally represented to encourage proper use, development and maintenance of our City outdoor spaces.

A Current issue being discussed is a proposed change to the City Municipal Code allowing class 1&2 E-Bikes on San Marcos trails. On January 13, the TAC (no equestrian representative present on committee) voted unanimously to move this proposal forward to the Parks and Rec Commission. The Commission will have this on their agenda at a meeting in February or March.

Please consider getting involved in our community and give your horse a voice. Happy Trails!

Sincerely, Patty Morton

The horses are beautiful and the barn is pristine, but where there are animals, hay and food there are also rodents. Barn cats can help. Rodents destroy insulation, electrical wiring, bedding and leather, contaminate feed supplies and spread disease. Having a resident stable or barn cat can provide a safe, nontoxic solution to this issue.

The mission of the Volunteers of the Burbank Animal Shelter is to find homes for all animals who find themselves temporarily homeless. Some cats arrive at the shelter who are unsocialized, feral or have other behaviors that mean they can never be successfully adopted as a family pet. Their options are limited, their future uncertain. However they are healthy, have had their shots and in return for a safe, comfortable environment, regular food and water can easily become a working cat and a valuable asset to the equestrian community.

Our volunteer team will visit the property, discuss the potential, then deliver the cat(s) and help in setting up the safe environment and establishing routines. The nominal fee of $35 per cat covers spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, disease testing and parasite prevention.

The VBAS Barn Cat Program has been saving lives for the past nine years. Cats have gone to a ranch in Ojai, a school in Silverlake and many individual barns and businesses throughout Southern California. In the last two years alone, more than 50 cats have found a live-work environment through the diligent efforts of our team.

If you are interested in a Barn Cat, please contact Bonnie at or at 818 515 0002.

The benefits of having a barn kitty are many. The benefit of being that barn kitty is monumental…it's literally lifesaving.

Thank you.
