Who Can Join?

Being members of the Backcountry Horsemen

does not mean that our members have to be backcountry packers,

although we have a number of members who pack with horses and mules.


As a matter of fact, most of our members do not pack,

but are day riders who either camp at the trailhead or drive in for a day ride.


Backcountry packers, front country riders, or any horse enthusiast who agrees

that public land should remain open to the recreational use of stock are

Welcome In Our Organization.

Membership Dues

Local Chapter Dues for 2017 is $8.00.   This is in addition to the State BCH Dues ($41/single or $54/family).   Thus the total dues for a single membership is $49.   The total dues for a family membership is $62.

Benefits Of Joining

Anyone interested in supporting the activities of our chapter, including current, future, and armchair trail riders are encouraged to join.   You will receive the national, state and our own chapter newsletters.  These contain timely information on equestrian efforts across the country, state, and in our local area to develop and maintain horse facilities and trails.   There is also a wealth of information on places to go for that special vacation or camping trip. We host a Chapter ride each month locally, have programs of interest to horse enthusiasts at our monthly Chapter meetings, a Christmas party, a booth at the Jefferson County Fair, and several horse campouts (camping, with horses.) Plus, we always have a lot of fun when we get together!
