The Rock Bridge Canyon Equestrian Park developed from the need for an economic driver in the Town of Hodges, Alabama. Mayor Edward Crouch began to evaluate redevelopment of his small business district in 2006. From that discussion with his community it became evident that the Town of Hodges needed to develop and market its on economic driver. In 2008 Mayor Crouch commissioned an Asset Based Economic Development Study and an accompanying Project Feasibility Study. These documents identified the need to leverage local environmental assets for regional economic development. Furthermore, equestrian riding was identified as a local opportunity.
The feasibility of an equestrian park was refined in the study. Since the completion of that analysis, Mayor Crouch and the Town of Hodges have developed 20 miles of trail, held 3 special event rides, constructed the Day Use and Parking Area and are actively pursuing rail bed acquisition from Norfolk Southern Corporation. In addition, the Town operates and develops the park from the Rock Bridge Canyon Equestrian Trail Business & Master Plan completed in 2012. Current construction and design efforts consist of 30 campsites, 48 stall horse barn and the future Equestrian Center in Hodges, AL.
