The Pathfinder Back Country Horsemen will be at the high school rodeo at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds this Saturday demonstrating packing on horses and mules, horse and mule care, and Dutch oven cooking.

The formation of Back Country Horsemen of America took place in Montana’s Flathead Valley in January of 1973 and after many discussions, the four founders began a plan, a recipe, and a vision that would forever change the way horsemen think and act in the back country.

The main mission of the Back Country Horsemen is to keep public lands open to pack and saddle stock users and preserve the wild character of the public lands. In an effort to get that done the Wyoming organizations have donated over $2 million since inception of Wyoming BCHA and the national organization has contributed more than$ 86 million nationally since the start of BCHA
