Article by Mary Huntington, BCHBC Vice President -  Rendezvous 2016, our 25th Anniversary Celebration!  Well it really is Hoofprints in History now, but what fun we had turning it into history with 242 registrants and about 165 horses.  Our venue, the Princeton Exhibition grounds proved very capable of handling all the people, rigs, horses and mules that arrived.  Excitement was high right from the start, when the pack trippers arrived to settle in the only treed area of the grounds and set up a real packing camp that was worth walking up to, to look at and admire.  Upon entering the Exhibition grounds, people quickly located their friends and chapters and settled in encircling the grounds in a sea of white rigs.  As quickly as camps were set up, horses were unloaded, tacked up and ridden out to start exploring the fabulous trail systems. Friday was an early start with…

A Tribute to John Gardner

A Tribute to John Story By Gene Peters  with Photos By Kelly Hawes, Back Country Horsemen of BC  - Yarrow chapter. Backcountry Horsemen has lost one of it’s biggest fans and most tireless workers. John Gardner, known to all and loved by many, succumbed to a heart attack while attending to his mules after a long day on the trail.  He died with his boots on, doing what he loved, as all of us wish for and only the lucky few will achieve. At 80 years of age he regularly would go out trail riding the trails alone if need be, or with company if someone, preferably female, was available.  If anyone had reported a tree down, he would pack a chain saw to clear the way before the club could organize a work-bee to accomplish the task. In the Yarrow Chapter he was always at the head table serving, at…
Late March saw Yarrows core group of hard working, valuable volunteers out in Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park once again. In order to keep the horse trail (also part of the TCT (Trans Canada Trail) useable by horses and hikers, the slippery suspension bridge deck (we live and ride in a rainforest!) needed some expanded metal laid down. Yarrow bought the metal and got permission to use a quad and trailer to get it to the bridge. In short order it was tacked down and the volunteers retired to the lake for a picnic lunch. Tomorrow would be the day to see how the horse and mules would cross the metal grip.My bet was Johns mules would balk but they walked across like it had always been there!! Never can tell with mules. Another 3/4 hour ride brought us to the site of the turnpike. We needed to finish the last…
