East Valley Back Country Horsemen (EVBCH) is a nonprofit volunteer service organization focused on ensuring public lands remain accessible to equestrians. We advocate for private, recreational pack and saddle stock use of public lands and the stewardship of those lands. The Back Country Horsemen of America, of which we are a part, is the only national organization that promotes the use of private, recreational pack and saddle stock use on our public lands.
Membership entitles you to membership in both East Valley Back Country Horsemen and Back Country Horsemen of America. Members receive the Back Country Horsemen America (BCHA) National Newsletter published quarterly. The newsletter contains information regarding the activities of the National Board of Directors and the committee chairs (Education, Public Liaison, Wilderness, and Media Communications) along with news from the Twenty Five states represented in BCHA.
BCHA is a member of the Association Resource Group (ARG). ARG offers discounts on products and services to their members. They also provide information on topics applicable to affiliate organizations and their membership. EVBCH members in good standing qualify for ARG's many benefits.
