Fall in the Flint Hills Trail Ride!
It was a perfect weekend in the Flint Hills of Pottawatomie County! The sun was shining and the monarchs were migrating as 60 riders headed out Saturday on private ranchlands that featured panoramic views, cottonwood groves, hills, and ravines. It was absolutely beautiful seeing all of those horses with riders from 10 years to 80 spread out across the prairie!A delicious all-you-can eat dinner provided by the Loberg Grocery in Olsburg and musical entertainment by Bill Price topped off the excellent day along with a variety of door prizes. Homemade cinnamon rolls were served Sunday morning before heading out for a 3-hour ride on another beautiful fall day. Before loading up and heading home, a hot lunch was served from the previous evening’s leftovers. A lot of riders were asking if this could be an annual event. Thanks to the local landowners for allowing us to share their piece of heaven!
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.
One of the goals of BCHA-Kansas this year is to keep track of hours spent by volunteers across the state maintaining trails and dedicating hours to keeping our public trails open.
Across the US, there are 13,000 BCHA members and chapters in 27 states! For a membership form or information, contact Steve Lindsey, email@example.com, or Jim Thomas, firstname.lastname@example.org.
