The weekend of August 24 and 25 was the 2nd Annual Gabriola hosted Camp/Ride for the Back Country Horsemen of BC (BCHBC). 

Seventeen horses and riders joined us, for a total of 23 riders. Each day three groups headed out on different trails; the ride lengths were anywhere from 10 km to 26 km. 

Our guests were amazed by our beautiful trails, and appreciated how courteous other trail users and drivers were. 

We had a wonderful weekend with lots of laughs, sharing our common interests of horseback riding and multi-use trail preservation, main goals of the BCHBC. 

We are extremely fortunate to have such a fabulous trail system right here in our own back yard!

We would like to thank everyone who helped to welcome our guests, and the ground crew who provided water for both horses and humans and helped to clear the trails. Everyone is looking forward to next year!
