Welcome to

Attention All Chapter Officers
Zoom Meeting Precautions

If you are planning to conduct chapter zoom meetings, DO NOT publish login information in public forums such as chapter Facebook pages. Control who gets the invite. Consider using preregistration and for sure use a waiting room to help control who gets into the meeting. Public notices can be used by trolls to login and totally disrupt your meeting in very offensive ways. If you have already published the info, Delete the meeting, and reschedule it with a new meeting ID and passcode.
Let me know if you have questions.

Join us for the

Leave No Trace Community Partner Happy Hour

Dear Backcountry Horsemen of Utah team,

I am excited to invite you to a Leave No Trace virtual happy hour. We are inviting all of our Leave No Trace Community Partners to join us on Thursday, February 25th from 4PM EST for a "State of the Center" happy hour. At this event, we will give some brief updates from the last year and key you into our direction for 2021 and how you can help.

Here is the link you can use to RSVP and share with others at Backcountry Horsemen of Utah to get them psyched about Leave No Trace's plans for 2021.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Community Engagement Manager

Your Work Makes a Difference

BCHU members do a tremendous job each year volunteering their time and efforts so they and others can continue to enjoy the backcountry of Utah. See the completed Volunteer Hours Summary for 2020.


Back Country Horsemen of Utah (BCHU) is a state-wide organization of men and women concerned about sustained equestrian access and proper use on our public lands. We are the Utah members of Back Country Horsemen of America (BCHA) with the same committment to protecting the access of equestrians to public lands.

We welcome riders of all types, ages and interests into our chapters!


We are devoted equestrians who love to ride and explore new trails, and we assist with trail maintenance and improvement projects, keeping trails clear for all user groups.


  1. To perpetuate the common sense use and enjoyment of horses and mules in America's back country and wilderness.
  2. To work to ensure the public lands remain open to recreational pack and saddle stock use.
  3. To assist the agencies responsible for the management of public lands.
  4. To educate, encourage and solicit active participation in wise and sustaining use of back country resources by horsemen and the general public, commensurate with our heritage.
  5. To foster and encourage the formation of new chapters of Back Country Horsemen throughout Utah.

    In order to protect our heritage of back country stock use, we have joined service and education as composites to encourage and solicit active participation in the wise use of the back country resource by horsemen and the general public commensurate with our heritage.

    We welcome riders of all types, ages and interests into our chapters!
