A Story of a Prairie Girl & a Mountain Boy

Life-long horse enthusiasts and long-time BCHBC members, Patsy (87) and Earl Hobenshield (86) still sit tall in the saddle! For their 40th wedding anniversary did a riding trip in the Spatsizi. For their 65th wedding anniversary they did the Great Caribou Ride. For Earl’s 85th birthday this year, he got a new horse!

EC Manning Park Volunteers Building Bridges

By Rose Schroeder – Abbotsford Chapter   Like Isaac Newton said, “we build too many walls and not enough bridges!” The Back Country Horsemen of BC (BCHBC) use that theory to build bridges and partnerships to help preserve equestrian access to trails around BC.

There have to be trails to ride too, right out of that camp. As of September 15, 2013 the following list shows the designated horse trails in EC Manning Park and their status. This can change…
