The Selkirk Valley Back Country Horsemen received its charter from the Back Country Horsemen of Idaho in March 2004 and is compromised of horseman and horsewomen committed to assisting the Forest Service in the maintenance of trails, but more importantly to assure that our Public Lands remain open to stock use and the use of the citizens and visitors to North Idaho.

Over the past decades this Country has lost over two-thirds of the trails that were created over a century ago.  Now there is a voice and movement in Congress to shut down our public lands to stock use.  We, along with the State and National Chapters, will do whatever we can to stop this from happening.  This Chapter was formed out of a need and desire to engage these influences and become a voice for all horse owners in North Idaho.  For more information regarding our chapter, please feel free to attend one of our monthly meeting or call our Chapter President.




PERPETUATE the common sense use of horses in the back country.
WORK to insure that public lands remain open to recreational stock use.
ASSIST agencies in their maintenance and management of the resource.
EDUCATE, encourage and solicit active participation in the wise use of the back country resource by stock users and the general public.
