Be A BC Equestrian Trails Builder!

Just a few dollars from each Horse Council BC member each year can make a huge difference in building and improving BC’s equestrian trails. If you like to explore new trails, or plan to in the future, help make BC the best place on earth to ride by making a donation to the BC Equestrian Trails Fund. Grants will be made available to HCBC member clubs to assist them in building and improving trails and horse-camping sites. 

The Collins Overland Telegraph Trail improvements and kiosk construction, including a Clydesdale work party – Back Country Horsemen of BC Cariboo Chapter.

Manning Park trail improvements – Back Country Horsemen of BC, Yarrow Chapter.
