participants at the 2013 safe trail riding clinic

The Squaw Butte and Boise Chapters of the Backcountry Horsemen of Idaho pulled together a successful 2013 backcountry skills clinic. That success is attributed in no small part to outstanding presenters and participants of this year’s event.

From backcountry equine first-aid to equine therapeutic massage, participants were treated to demonstrations and lectures from top experts in the equine field.

A major emphasis on trail safety was evident as dozens of horses and riders put their skills to the test in the simulated trail course put together by Squaw Butte education committee leaders Chuck and Lorraine Chick.

The event finished off with demonstrations in different packing techniques by several of the backcountry horsemen’s experienced packers.

This year’s event had something for everyone from the novice to the experienced trail rider.

A sincere thank you to all of our presenters and participants in this year’s backcountry skills clinic – YOU ROCK!
