Back Country Horsemen of Washington

 Annual Rendezvous

 

February 2013 issue  

 

      The Back Country Horsemen of Washington 2013 Rendezvous will be held March 15–17, 2013, at the fairgrounds in Ellensburg , WA . The three-day event is open to the public.

      The Rendezvous is a BCH of Washington fundraiser with proceeds going to maintain existing trails, and build new trails for horses, campers, and hikers. Keeping trails open provides affordable, healthy outdoor recreation for family, friends, and for future generations to enjoy Mother Nature in the backcountry.

      The featured clinician is Barb Apple whose Friday-Saturday, two-day clinic will focus on the basic moves of Cowboy Dressage, and how these concepts apply to trail riding.

      “We will increase the skill and safety in our trail horses,” says Apple. “The clinic will be fun. Good horsemanship is good horsemanship. Horses love cross-training. It helps them stay fresh and not so bored.” Spectators may watch for free. Those wishing to bring a horse to the clinic should contact Barb Apple at 360-832-3616.

      In 2012, BCHW members volunteered 62,000 hours. BCHW is made up of 34 chapters in Washington State . BCHW is a 501c3 organization that was established in 1982 and incorporated in 1987.

      For more information about the Rendezvous, camping and dinner reservations, contact Lori Lennox at 360-482-2742; Jason Ridlon at 509-964-9260; or visit www.bchw.org.
