    NORCO — Back Country Horsemen of California brought Ingalls Equestrian Center to life March 21-23, featuring trainer clinicians like Robin Bond, Jerry Tindell and Shawna Karrasch as well as scores of other activities and attractions including a concert by Dave Stamey, a BCHC member as well as Western Music Association 2012 Male Performer of the Year.

    BCHC spokesperson Peter Kriger said this year’s BCHA Rendezvous drew more than 2,000 attendees from a wide area, promoting the 3,000-plus member association’s triple-headed mission.

    “Our main objective is number one, keep trails open for stock use on all public lands,” said Kriger. “Number two, public service, using our pack animals, doing the trail work ourselves, packing in supplies, helping others like the CCC and State Parks, the BLM, and the National Forest service.”

    “Our third objective is education — not only to bring awareness to horsemen, but to the general public about leaving no trace, low impact camping and just general equine training.”

    After two years in Norco, Kriger said the Rendezvous will move to Northern California in 2015, likely to Calveras County.

    In addition to the educational clinics, the events included a dinner and auction, kids activities, a trail trials, a demo with the US Forest Service Pack Mule String, a beer and wine cheese social event, Cowboy Church, and more.
