Welcome to the San Diego Unit Website!

My name is Walt Kirkwood, and I'm President of the San Diego Unit of Backcountry Horsemen of California. Welcome to our Website! Please browse around to see what we're about. We'd love to hear from you. If you have any comments, questions, or interest in joining our unit, please feel free to contact us.

Our unit is very active with our local public land managers, Ca State Parks, US Forest Service and BLM. If you have an interest in getting involved in trail work for any of these agencies contact us. president@bchcsd.com

What's best about our unit?

Perhaps the best thing about the San Diego Unit is that we're blessed to have great riding in our area all year around. The coast, the mountains, the desert- we've got it all here and usually no more than a couple of hours from home. We've got great equestrian trails and facilities in our area and strong, engaged equestrian and trails communities that work hard to keep trails open for everyone.


Due to Covid 19 and social distancing board and membership meetings will be conducted thru ZOOM. Everyone is welcome to join in. If you are not a member use the link to contact Walt. I will send an invitation link to you, just click on the link at 6:00 PM the day of the meeting and you will be invited in. president@bchcsd.com
