The Back Country Horsemen of America (BCHA) is a national organization dedicated to perpetuating the common sense use and enjoyment of horses in America’s back country and to assist land management agencies in their maintenance and management of equine-related trails and facilities.  BCHA has over 13,000 members and organizations in 27 states.  The Back Country Horsemen of Georgia (BCHGA) includes four BCH chapters: North, Northeast, Middle and South, and Northwest Georgia. 

The Northwest chapter was formed in late 2011 to better support publicly available equestrian trails and related facilities in that region generally bounded on the west by the Georgia-Alabama state line, on the east by the midline of the Cohutta Wilderness, on the north by the Georgia-Tennessee state line, and on the south near the Chattahoochee River.

We have over 630 miles of public trails open for equestrians in Georgia, with over 250 miles of these ‘horse trails’ located in the northwestern part of the stateBack Country Horsemen of Northwest Georgia (BCHNWG) focuses our support using Local Service Teams.  We believe equestrians tend to use trails close to home and thus we encourage those riders to help maintain the trails they use and enjoy.
