2024- FREE education series with amazing presenters.   YouTube recordings of each presentation

We are a volunteer horse group with members all over Colorado. We enjoy horse trail riding and trail clearing work in the Colorado back-country. Let us show you which trails to ride, how to be safe on a trail ride with your horse, how to camp with your equine and how to perform Colorado trail maintenance wherever you are.  We'll even provide great people to ride with!

Can't currently ride? Enjoy being outside but more in a scouting capacity?  Love maintaining trails? All Back Country Horsemen chapters perform work BUT there are so many different ways to contribute to your equine communityJoin the volunteer efforts to keep the outdoors accessible for equestrians and all our friendly outdoor groups.

Check out this amazing presentation of our member Peter and his trip across Mongolia and Kyrgizstan!
