Meet Rosalie . . .

A group of Kansas equestrians and trail riders have been successful in chartering a Kansas chapter of Back Country Horsemen of America! Especially in travels to western states, riders see evidence of the work this group does to keep public trails open to equestrians. It’s not uncommon to head into a remote campground in Colorado, Wyoming, or New Mexico and find trails and corrals built by the local BCHA chapter.
Dues of $40/individual, $45/family include both your 2014 Kansas and national memberships. Find out more about BCHA and read the Mission Statement at www.backcountryhorse.com.
Across the US, there are 13,000 BCHA members and chapters in 26 states. Kansas will make 27!For a membership form or information, contact Steve Lindsey, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Jim Thomas, email@example.com.
Specialty Equine License Plates?
Here’s the design for the proposed specialty equine license plate. It was designed by Kansas City artist, John Keeling. The bill has passed the House and is waiting on Senate approval. If all goes well, you’ll be able to have one of these on your car, truck or trailer in 2015!
