Back Country Horsemen

I've always wanted to join our local chapter and this past weekend I travelled about 45 minutes from our town to a new campsite that has been created for camping our with your horses. It is a provincial campsite each with two medium sized pens for horses. Everything has been done very well and a couple of friends of mine are camping up there for the week. There are endless trails from the campsite and all amenities like wheelbarrows, poop scoops are there. Anyway, my goal is to join our local club and get a trailer to get going out and about. Is there anyone here who belongs to a chapter?

I'm hit and miss with the local chapter. I help them out on work projects a couple times a year and join them for the occasional ride. But rarely go to their monthly meetings.

Not a trail rider, but I send them some cash occasionally to help their cause. I believe they are doing good work and want open spaces for horsemen in the future.

I'm a member of Back Country Horsemen on Washington and used to serve on the state board. I think BCH is a great group that does a lot of good. Love all of the dutch oven dinners and cooking as well!

Im really trying to get up to the campsite for this summer sometime but will require a lot of planning and borrowing on my part. I like what they do and I'd like to ride with a group of like minded people.

I say do it!
My mentor as a teenager riding colts was a packer that helped start the "Top of the State Unit" in CA. A great bunch of people, they were very involved in the community and educating. The rides/trips were fun!

I belong to BCH of Oregon. The chapter I'm in consists of myself, my sister-in-law and one other lady friend. Oregon Equestrian Trails is very active in my area and most people here don't see the need to join two similar organizations. So we limp along and pay our dues every year!

There are several very active BCHO chapters throughout the state. It's a great organization.

Where, generally, are you located?
