The Santa Fe Chapter of the Back Country Horsemen (BCHSF) welcomes you to browse our webpages for information on joining BCHSF, projects and rides, contact info, and much more! BCHSF is a great resource for info on places to ride, packing, camping with your horses, trail conditions, and many other items of interest to trail riders and outdoor enthusiasts.
BCHSF works closely with several US Forest Service agencies, such as the Española, Santa Fe, Cuba, Coyote, and Canjilon Ranger Districts, and the Bureau of Land Management and county agencies. By attending meetings and forums, our members stay abreast of important state and local issues concerning pack stock and trail access. We make our voices heard by communicating with our representatives, senators, and congressmen.
In addition to volunteer work and trail maintenance, we also go on fun rides and trips into the back country. We help other volunteer groups, such as Volunteers for the Outdoors and Rocky Mountain Youth Corps, with pack support by hauling supplies in on our horses, mules, and donkeys.
Our monthly meetings are held on the second Tuesday of
each month. We usually meet at the Santa Fe Sheriff's
Posse Building located at 3213 Rodeo Road. The meetings
begin at 6:00 p.m., and we often have a potluck dinner.
Alternatively, we sometimes meet at local restaurants.
Our meetings often feature a guest speaker--forester,
map maker, veterinarian, or even author--who shares
valuable information and experiences with the group. The
public is always welcome to attend any meeting, ride, or
function of BCHSF before becoming a member to learn what we're all about. Come one, come all!
Membership dues are $30 for a single membership and $40 for a family. Your membership includes monthly emails with minutes of the meeting, a quarterly newsletter from Back Country Horsemen of America (BCHA), and other info as it comes available. You must fill out an application and submit an additional amount of approximately $5 for liability insurance. This insurance covers your participation in any BCH-New Mexico event.
