It is with our deepest sympathy that we
say farewell to Taylor. You will be greatly missed
by all of us who shared the love of public lands with
Horsemen of North Georgia (BCHNG) is one of four Georgia chapters –
and one of nearly 200 across the country – of our 13,000- member
strong national organization, Back Country Horsemen of America (BCHA).
BCH members provide a united, strong voice for equestrian access to
sustainable trails on public lands. Working collaboratively with
other trail users and land managers, BCHNG has played an integral
role in the CoTrails Initiative of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National
Forests, participating in decision and management processes.
BCHNG members provide direct support for local trail mapping,
construction of sustainable trails and maintenance activities, as
well as input to local and national forest management policy. In
2007, BCHNG adopted and has since maintained the Jacks River Fields
Campground & Horse Camp in the Conasauga Ranger District that was
facing closure because of resource cuts.
We need motivated members to assist us with our mission. If you
enjoy riding in the North Georgia Mountains and treasure the right
to do so, consider becoming a member of the Back Country Horsemen of
North Georgia. Please see the membership link on this page. Help us
ensure that we, our children, and grandchildren continue to
experience the pleasure of riding our horses and mules on public
lands. Without your help, this is a privilege we could lose!

Preserving our trails
for future generations is a main goal of BCHNG.
