HOUSTON, (Horseback) – Tucked away in court documents relating to a lawsuit filed by journalist and artist Laura Leigh is a telling photograph by Western Watershed Biodiversity Director, Katie Fite. The photo is of a peaceful desert scene.
The photo shows a river about 60 feet wide with abundant still and white water. It also shows horses on a gently sloping trail advancing to the riparian banks for a drink. The horses clearly know where the life giving water is located as they walk single file to it. Other photos show more horses heading toward a trail leading to the river‘s flat beaches. It is a place where campers might spend the night and fish.
In a Horseback Magazine interview Tuesday, BLM chase contractor Sue Cattoor said the trail was one of several that lead to the river. The government contractor said this trail was the only one the horses use. Cattoor also said it is steep. The photos tell a different story.
