WHY BECOME A MEMBER OF BACK COUNTRY HORSEMEN? At times outnumbered on the trails and at hearings where land use decisions are made, retaining our rights of access and use of back country requires a unitied, coordinated effort.  Although most user groups accept equine use, there are some that would like to see equine activities prohibited in wilderness areas and severely limited on public lands.  Join the organization that is working to protect and expand your riding opportunities. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization.  Your membership dues are tax deductible.  Many of our members belong to multiple trail organizations and some do not even own or ride a horse.  We are a service organization and all trail enthusiasts are welcome as members.
