The Purpose of Back Country Horsemen of Utah is

  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.
