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 recreationists. 


BCHSF works closely with several U.S. 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 2nd Tuesday of each month. We usually meet at the Santa Fe Sheriff's Posse Building located at 

3213 Rodeo Road. See the interactive map below for directions. 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. You may mail us at Back Country Horsemen of Santa Fe, P.O. Box 5708, Santa Fe, NM 87502  Or call us at 505-753-3531 for more info
