The Step-N-Strut trail ride takes place in and around Opelousas, Louisiana, in St. Landry Parish.  It’s been around for many years, and draws over a thousand riders, many from out of state.  The Opelousas Daily World has a story about the ride.  There’s some controversy buried about halfway down the article, though.  The parish is considering an ordinance to prevent rides with more than 500 participants.   There’s a lot of interest in trail rides; the New York Times featured an article about them earlier this year.  So it will be interesting to see how the parish handles this issue.
