This year's Competitive Trail Ride was even better than last year! "Thank you" to all the members that organized and participated to make this event a success. We were happy to see riders return from last year and welcomed new ones that tested themselves and their horses on the obstacle course and trails. Enjoy the photos and remember to check the calendar for upcoming trail rides!
Idaho is blessed with thousands of square miles of open public land. However, access to the back country is by a network of fragile trails. Just as our roads need constant repair so do back country trails. When trails become washed out or blocked by natural downfall and overgrowth, people stop using them. Under use of a trail is as bad as over use. Horse back riders, hikers, back packers, mountain bikers, dirt bikers, and trail runners, all share the same trail. PRBCH would like to promote cooperation among these trail users through planning, volunteer service, public education, and negotiation with government agencies.
