Our active chapter has trail rides, pack trips, work parties, training clinics, and the Horse Packing and Wilderness Skills Clinic, which is the best educational event of its kind on the West Coast. We are involved with the Federal Agencies providing volunteer labor on trails and trailheads and work with them on management issues and regulations regarding equestrian use on Public Lands.
The High Desert Trail Riders Back Country Horsemen is dedicated to good horsemanship, good sportsmanship, the promotion of horse trails and trail horse facilities, to provide an active program of recreational riding.
Our Mission :
* To perpetuate the common sense use and enjoyment of horses in America's back country and wilderness.
*To work to ensure that public lands remain open to recreational stock use.
*To assist the various government and private agencies in their maintenance and management of said resources.
*To educate, encourage, and solicit active participation in the wise use of the back country resource by horsemen and the general public commensurate with our heritage.
