British Columbia

We are a province-wide society, currently with 21 regional chapters

A member driven organization formed and registered as a Provincial not-for-profit society in 1991.  From three or four chapters in its formative years, BCHBC has grown to 21 chapters representing many areas of the Province, from north to south and east to west. 

In recent years (with the exception of 2020), BCHBC averaged over 900 members annually.  A unique group of individuals, diversified in background, age and experience, who share a great appreciation for, and actively take part in, all aspects of recreational trail riding – front and back country, including trail building.  An enthusiastic group that supports the many initiatives, projects and activities of BCHBC.

Are you new to trail riding or a seasoned pro? We offer a friendly atmosphere for those interested in:

  • development and maintenance of new and existing trails, trailheads and campsites
  • recreational riding
  • camping with your equine partners
  • horsemanship
  • educational programs
  • events and activities
  • joining a group working together in support of our recreational passion

Don’t let our name fool you, at least half our members are women!  Many members don’t ride the back country and some don’t even own horses … but all support our Mission and the work we do.  To encourage the next generation of trail riders, youth registration is free.  BCHBC focuses on safety for horses and riders, environmental stewardship, trail building and maintenance … and fun!

If you are interested in joining an organization with a recognized reputation of volunteerism towards supporting trail maintenance and development, meeting like-minded individuals, making new friends and trail riding – both front & back country, we look forward to meeting you!
