Origins of the Gila Chapter of BCHNM


New Mexico is truly the “Land of Enchantment”!  Southwestern New Mexico has a variety of unique and breathtaking back country areas.  Being part of a group interested in discovering and preserving trail riding and equestrian opportunities in the back country is such a privilege.  In 2001, the efforts of Gerry Thompson led to forming the Gila Chapter of the Back Country Horsemen of America, dedicated to keeping the back country open to horses and livestock.  Thank you, Gerry!
