The Four Corners Back Country Horsemen chapter works to enhance and maintain the right to ride and use stock on public land. All organization efforts are completed through hard working volunteers. Although 4CBCH offers social activities, we are not a riding club. What we do is KEEP TRAILS OPEN to equestrian use and help improve trail conditions. If you like riding trails on public lands, please join our group. Even if you cannot be an active participant in projects, you will meet other horse folks, make new friends and be part of a positive action group. Equestrian users are an important element of public trails and we must work hard to continue our equine access. We look forward to meeting you.
