BITTER ROOT BACK COUNTRY HORSEMEN 

  

2014 Summer Meeting Schedule

To fully enjoy the summer, we hold our summer meetings outside - date and time remain the same. Members often take the opportunity to ride before the potluck/meeting. If an organized ride has been planned, it will be noted on the calendar with further detail on the Ride Schedule page.

This year's outdoor meeting schedule is as follows:
  
 ♦  June 19 - Rock Creek Horse Camp at Lake Como
   ♦  July 17 - Larry Creek Trailhead 
   ♦  August 21 - Sam Billings Campground (new horse camp location)

Rain or shine! We'll put up the tent for cover if it is needed. Same year-round schedule:  6:30 potluck, 7:00 meeting

Guests and those interested in the BCH are invited to attend.
Please join us (for the potluck, too)!


 


BACK COUNTRY HORSEMEN PURPOSES
Each of these purposes stands alone; no one is more important that another

1. To perpetuate the common sense use and enjoyment of horses in America’s back country and wilderness areas.

2. To work to ensure that public lands remain open to recreational stock use.

3. To assist the various government, state and private agencies in their maintenance and management of said resource.

4. To educate, encourage and solicit active participation in the wise and sustaining use of the back country resource by horsemen and the general public commensurate with our heritage.

5. To foster and encourage the formation of new back country horsemen’s organizations.

6. To cooperate with other B.C.H.A. organizations.
