New Duluth horse trail group announces logo contest

Artists and designers - especially those with a special love for the outdoors or horses - are needed to help a new Duluth trail-building group develop a logo.

Artists and designers - especially those with a special love for the outdoors or horses - are needed to help a new Duluth trail-building group develop a logo.

The Duluth Area Horse Trail Alliance is holding a logo contest that will be the centerpiece of their promotional campaigns.

The newly formed group is made up of horse owners who want to help expand and connect multi-use trails through the south end of St. Louis County and into Carlton County and Jay Cooke. Bikers, hikers and horse riders will all benefit by pooling their combined goal for 50 miles of connected trails.

"Trail clubs are well established for many recreational sports, but it's been a few decades since local horse trail riders have organized to have a say in trail development," said Candy Barbo, president of the Alliance. "We want to be part of the planning, building and maintaining. Attractive and safe horse trails will also bring riders from other areas to enjoy Duluth as a destination, so it helps the local economy, too."

The winner will be announced at a special award ceremony and unveiling. The winner will receive $75 cash and merchandise bearing the logo. Artwork submissions or questions about the contest should be emailed to agullion49@gmail.com or mailed to Anne Gullion, 1885 Connors Road, Cloquet MN 55720.
