What We Do

Why Volunteer?

Volunteerism is one of the most important activities Back Country Horsemen can use in our effort to perpetuate enjoyable common-sense use of pack and saddle stock in the back country. A central point of our mission statement is to assist government agencies in the maintenance and management of public lands.

By using our time and resources, we help ensure that public land remains open to recreational stock use by earning a seat at the table where we can influence the decisions concerning access to public lands by pack. The value of being able to speak with public lands managers from the position of having provided volunteer service cannot be overstated. Trail maintenance, travel time, stock use, equipment hauling, education, and much more is tracked as part of our volunteer efforts.

Back country horsemen are influential in policy discussions that take place to keep trails open for this and future generations.
