The equestrian Mounted Assistance Unit is a branch of the large volunteer unit that supports Henry Coe State Park. MAU members go through the same extensive volunteer training expected of all park volunteers, as well as specialized training that ensures horse and rider safety and preparedness. MAU members supply their own horses and transportation.
MAU staff maintain trails, help organize the Back Country Weekend, host the annual Ranch Day event at Hunting Hollow, and host other fun equestrian events like spring wildflower rides and moonlight rides. The Mounted Assistance Unit coordinates with park staff and law enforcement on search and rescue missions.
Uniformed MAU members are often found riding throughout the park on courtesy patrols. Feel free to ask us for directions or for general information about the park. We are always happy to help.
