What We Do

Our Chapter is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to preserving horseback riding and packing opportunities on public lands, educating riders to Leave No Trace, and promoting volunteerism among horsemen and the public. Join us in our mission to protect and maintain the trails and backcountry areas where we ride and recreate.


Our Chapter works closely with trail partners and local land management agencies to clear and maintain trails and trailheads.


Provide monthly planning meetings that educate, encourage and solicit active participation in the wise use of the back country resource by horsemen and the general public commensurate with our heritage.


Monthly trail rides to perpetuate the commonsense use and enjoyment of horses in America’s back country and wilderness.
