The Rattlesnake Ridge Riders, Inc. is a local chapter of the Backcountry Horsemen of Washington (BCHW) and Back Country Horsemen of America. Our purpose is to perpetuate the recreational use of equines on our public lands. We provide significant volunteer work to various government and private agencies for trail development and maintenance, campsite development, fence building and/or removal, trash removal, etc., in addition to providing input into agency land management plans. We also promote good environmental practices applicable to all user groups through our Leave No Trace education program. As a not-for-profit corporation [501 (c) 4], the best use of our small surplus of finds is for education in an appropriate field.
