Mustangs help teach gentle backcountry use at San Bernardino Sheriff's 9th Annual Rodeo
San Gorgonio Unit, Back Country Horsemen's Association president, Chip Herzog, and his wife Linda brought their Mustang Burt, a few mules and horses to the San Bernardino Sheriff's 9th Annual 2008 PRCA Pro Rodeo -- to share with Girl and Boy Scouts how to pack with animals. (text continues below)
The Back Country Horsemen's Association members use the "Leave No Trace" program principles to teach back country travel skills -- which align with the Association's "Gentle Use" program.
Chip and Linda's three year old mustang Burt is old hand at outreach with kids, and doesn't blink an eye when Troop 407 girl scouts scoot under his belly and hang on his neck.
