A group of private and commercial packers met in 1981 to form the High Sierra Stock Users Association with the purpose of representing horsemen in dealings with the administrators of public lands.
Five years later the HSSUA joined with Montana, Idaho, and Washington to form an affiliation called the Back Country Horsemen of America(BCHA). This national organization's task is to coordinate activities of the various state backcountry organizations. The BCHA now has BCH organizations in 26 states.
