Through the work and collaboration of Putnam Township and Mike Levine Lakelands Trail a "Trail Etiquette" document has been developed to provide a better experience for all trailer riders choosing to utilize these trails.
The improvements also allow for the trails to be used as a multi-use trail. This allows for both non-motorized trail users and horse enthusiasts to utilize the space at the same time while providing a safe and enjoyable experience for both parties.

One of the 2020 Michigan Horse Council’s catalyst award recipients is an individual that has influenced many lives through the Michigan High School Rodeo Association during his 15 years of involvement.
Elewyn’s passion for horses began when he was a child participating in 4-H. Soon after high school Elewyn would become involved in rodeo. In 2005 Elewyn became involved in youth rodeo through the Michigan High School Rodeo and is currently serving as the National Rodeo Association Director for Michigan as well as the 1st Vice President.
Elewyn’s passion for coaching high school rodeo is driven by seeing the growth and development of high school riders as individuals as well as competitors. In addition to seeing the success of the riders Elewyn has worked hard to grow the industry as a whole and increase the number of entries.
Through high school rodeo Elewyn has greatly enjoyed seeing the opportunities it has provided to the students such as scholarships, college offers, and the self-confidence it has given to each competitor.
Today Elewyn and his wife, Bridget of 30 years, reside in Millington, Michigan where he has spent his entire life. He is thankful for Bridget’s continued support and willingness to participate in the family trips to rodeos.
When Elewyn was asked what his proudest moment was so far he said it was raising his three daughters and being a husband.
Thank you Elewyn for all your contribution to the Michigan High School Rodeo, Michigan horse industry, and the lives of hundreds of competitors that you have had the privilege to influence.
Congratulations Elewyn Pletcher, 2020 Michigan Horse Council Catalyst award recipient.

Equine Legislative Day at the Michigan State Capital in Lansing on Thursday, September 26, 2019 from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm.
Join us in building awareness about the economic impact of the Michigan equine industry!
Please help provide a unified voice to our state legislators in advocating for support and growth of the Michigan equine industry. The MHC’s goal is to spread awareness about the economic impacts of the Michigan equine industry in its various capacities such as youth programming, showing, rodeo, racing and trail riding. Not only do these activities create a positive economic impact to our state, but many of these events attract out of state visitors to Michigan. For example, the Michigan equine industry provides these four main benefits:
