Loomis Basin Horsemen's Association was formed in 1984 to stop developers from taking away the beautiful equestrian trails of the Loomis Basin in California.

Fort Harrod Back Country Horsemen is an affiliate of Back Country Horsemen of America. Members of the Fort Harrod BCH work hard to steward existing riding lands and create new riding opportunities for equestrians in areas surrounding Harrodsburg, Kentucky. The group devotes many volunteer hours to maintaining trails at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill and at Eagles Nest, a privately-owned property comprising roughly 1000 acres of beautiful wooded and open space. Fort Harrod BCH has received a grant from the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails & Conservation Assistance program to help develop a plan to forever protect Eagles Nest for enjoyment by hikers and horseback riders.

The Equestrian Partners program=2 0is a rapidly growing coalition of organizations from across the country that are committed to helping ELCR fulfill its mission of conserving land and access for all equines. Despite their diverse interests and activities, our Partners recognize that with land in the U.S. being developed at the rate of 250 acres per hour, the future of our lives with horses as we know it know is in dire jeopardy. Equestrian Partners network through ELCR and promote ELCR’s mission to their various members, constituents, donors, etc.

It is necessary for us to act now to conserve land so that future generations will be able to enjoy horses as horsemen do today. If your organization would like to join our national efforts to save land for horses, visit http://www.elcr.org, or call (859) 455-8383 for more information.
