Competitive Mounted Orienteering "CMO"
Would anyone be interested? CMO is a timed event covering a course of about 10 miles (more or less depending on location) in which you try to find 5-10 markers (in any order) using a map (provided) and a compass. A pre-ride Zoom clinic precedes the event. This will not be a sanctioned NACNO event so contestants can use their phone or GPS.
Please email your interest to Portneufriverbch@gmail.

Spring is coming and people will be looking to buy or sell horses and mules. Only members or friends of the Portneuf River Back Country Horsemen may post advertisements on our website or facebook page. However, there are many other facebook pages that host horse sales.
I am looking for a horse that is very well rounded.
I want one that has spent a lot of time in the mountains crossing streams,
bridges, mud, logs, and keeps a level head while doing so and has an excellent smooth gait but yet will also walk like a quarter horse.

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, 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.
The Federal government owns 61.6% of Idaho, only exceeded a little bit by Utah 64.9%, and a lot by Alaska 84.9%. Idaho has the greatest percent of its land in national forests 38.2%. And, while only 2.58% of the lower continental United States is designated as wilderness, Idaho contains 4.8 million acres of wilderness, 3rd largest in the U.S..
