The Many Benefits of Membership...
The High Desert Trail Riders Back Country Horsemen is a 501c3 organization dedicated to good horsemanship, good sportsmanship, the promotion of horse trails and trail horse facilities, to provide an active program of recreational riding.
Our purposes are:
-To perpetuate the common sense use and enjoyment of horses in America's backcountry and wilderness.
-To work to insure that public lands remain open to recreational stock use.
-To assist the various government and private agencies in their maintenance and management of said resources.
-To educate, encourage and solicit active participation in the wise use of the backcountry resource by horsemen and the general public commensurate with our heritage.
It is said that what you get out of an organization depends on how much you put into it. Participation is necessary to reap the benefits of HDTR membership. The long-term benefit is leaving our legacy of equestrian use in our backcountry to future generations, for our children and grandchildren.
The short-term benefits are the fun, camaraderie and education we get from the many activities that we do. These activities include trail rides (day and overnight), pack trips, Chapter meetings, government agency meetings, and educational events. They also include work projects such as trail clearing, horse camp and trailhead maintenance, providing packing support for government agencies, and fish packing.
The responsibility of membership is to be involved at whatever level you are comfortable with. HDTR’s existence and success is determined by the activities that we do – that means member involvement to help us make HDTR a success. Members are free to choose which activities they wish to participate in.
Please consider becoming a BCH member. You can meet new equestrian friends and help us build credible relationships with Agency partners and other trail user groups. There is fun for everyone.
