Packing trip to Rendezvous 2015

Annual Rendezvous

Rendezvous (RV) and BCHBC Annual General Meeting

By far the largest gathering of BCHBC is our annual Rendezvous.  Up to 300 members and guests (with or without their horses) gather to socialize, attend training sessions & share ideas for backcountry skills, horsemanship, and to attend the Annual General Meeting.

At Rendezvous you may find activities such as obstacle course navigation simulating what you might find on the trail, packing lessons and competitions, clinicians and workshops on various aspects of horsemanship, Dutch oven competitions, Leave No Trace presentations, camping with horses clinics, music, as well as the annual “Ernie Buckle” cowboy poetry competition – plus lots of fun.  Members meet with old friends, make new contacts from around the province and ride new trails.

You will be informed of new and exciting projects at the Annual General Meeting, vote on executive positions and contribute to the future direction of the Society.

Unfortunately, this event has been postponed two years in a row (2020 & 2021).  However, Prince George-Omineca Chapter is looking forward to hosting Rendezvous again June 24, 25 & 26th, 2022 (assuming COVID restrictions are lifted) to be held at the CN Centre & PG Agriplex.  Watch for further details on activities, clinics and registration information early in the new year!

For up-to-date information we invite you to follow our Rendezvous FaceBook page!
