Our club meets at 5:30 pm on the first Monday of each month at the Public
Health Office in Pinedale, WY. Our yearly membership dues are $30 for an
individual and $40 for a family.
Formed in 2008, our chapter currently has about 40 members.
We repaired a bridge across the Green River at the outlet from the Green
River Lakes in the summer of 2008.
In May 2009, a two-day hands-on packing clinic was held by USDA Forest
Service personnel Brad Bence and Gary Hayward. The first day was basic
packing information, while the second day covered more advanced techniques.
Proper saddle and tack fit, high-lining and hobbling, hitches and safety as
well as "Leave No Trace" were all reviewed.
In June 2009, members built a new corral at the trailhead to Scab Creek,
southeast of Boulder, WY. They also helped clear a new trail for
horsemen to utilize in the same area. In July 2009, we rode in the
Rendezvous Parade in Pinedale.
In August 2009, we did trail work on the Green River Lakes trail above
the Green River Lakes. Members rode their horses about five miles in
and built a turnpike trail across a boggy area. They cut trees with
crosscut saws, carried the trees to the trail site and laid them across the
trail with about three feet of space between them. Then they filled
the space with dirt, making it much easier for both horsemen and hikers to
traverse. The day was followed by a barbecue at the Green River Lakes
In 2012, we adopted 35 miles of the Continental Divide Trail in the Wind
River Range, which we maintain and help with signage on an ongoing basis.
We have worked with the Forest Service on a major maintenance project on
the Scab Creek Trail in the Wind River Range. This included blasting
out and reconstructing the trail tread, building water drainage structures
and removing hazardous trees adjacent to the trail. Work continues on
this project as we continue to meet with the BLM to build one to three more
pipe corrals at the trailhead.
