BACK COUNTRY HORSEMEN of NORTHWEST ARKANSAS
Back Country Horsemen of Northwest Arkansas (BCHNWA) is one of four Arkansas chapters of the national service organization Back Country Horsemen of America. We are the newest chapter in the state, but we really hit the ground running and quickly established a reputation for being a dedicated group of equestrians who are committed to keeping the trails of northwest Arkansas open and accessible to all. Our BCHNWA mission is to preserve, maintain, and protect access to public lands for equestrians, hikers, bikers, and other outdoor enthusiasts. We work together with public land agencies, including the National Park Service, Arkansas State Parks, and the Ozark National Forest, to help maintain trails for future generations to enjoy.
BCHNWA has a broad service area (see the links to our service partners below), which means our members have lots of options when deciding where to devote their time and energy. We will have a place for you, too. So, come ride, work and camp with us. That’s the best way to learn about the work that we do and to understand why you might want to be a part of this timeless tradition of horses and mules on public trails.
