Historic Sites of Manitoba: Birds Hill Provincial Park Equestrian Trail (Birds Hill Provincial Park, RM of Springfield)

At this site along South Drive in Birds Hill Provincial Park, in the Rural Municipality of Springfield, an equestrian cross-country trail and series of jumps were built by the Manitoba Horse Council, with construction supervised by Maurice A. Taillieu. In 1986, a commemorative plaque for the project was placed here by the Manitoba Parks Branch.
