Certified Chainsaw Training Now Available

BCHU now has a team of certified chainsaw trainers to train our members. They will be putting on 2 classes in the spring, actual dates & locations TBD, for 10-15 students each. The classes are 2 days, 1 for course work and 1 for field work.

If you are interested in renewing or getting your initial chainsaw certification please download the form, fill it out, and email it to Pete Warnick.

You must have a current first aid training card. This 1st aid training is available online. You can borrow the chapter's PPE that is required for the course. Of course if you damage the PPE you are required to replace/repair it.

If you're interested in this training send the form in by Feb 18.

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!
