What we're about
Welcome to the Front Range Back Country Horsemen (one of eleven chapters of the Back Country Horsemen of America). We actively support our national forests and other agencies in the Front Range area including Mount Evans and Lost Creek Wilderness, and the Colorado Trail Foundation in their trail maintenance work. Our organization draws its members from the Denver metro area, from Longmont to Elizabeth. Most of our summer activities are in the mountains within 1½ hours drive from Golden.
Our mission is to perpetuate recreational stock use on public lands through the legislative system, education and volunteer trail work. We have a variety of weekday and weekend projects scheduled to accommodate the needs and interests of our members. You can check out some of our newsletters on our website http://www.frbch.org . In addition there is more information and great photos on the site. We hope our activities interest you and inspire you to participate!
Whether you are interested in trail maintenance, noxious weed eradication and identification, packing skills, Leave No Trace principles, or back country safety skills – you will find plenty of ways to be involved.
If you’re a horse lover and don’t own a horse, many of the FRBCH members have horses you can ride, but you must be horse savvy as there are often streams and creek crossings, and other obstacles that requires more than novice or dude-horse riding experience.
Our monthly meetings, which are open to anyone, are on the fourth Tuesday or Wednesday of each month and the location varies. Please see our calendar for details.
Thank you again for your support. We hope to see you at our meetings and on the trail! Without trails where would we ride?
