The Beaver Creek Horsemen's Association (BCHA)  is also known as the Columbiana County Chapter of the Ohio Horsemen's Council. We  were established in 1989. We are celebrating our silver anniversary this year!
The primary mission of our club is to maintain the horsemen's camp and the bridle trails in Beaver Creek State Park, Columbiana County, Ohio. Our horsemen's camp is located  at 12816 Sprucevale Road ( County Road 428 ) East Liverpool, OH 43920   http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=wl

BEAVER CREEK STATE PARK bridle trail descriptions were submitted to our northeast OHC representative for the special Northeast Corral insert, however they have not been updated on the OHC website which may be accessed by the link on the left.The updates are dependent on that link being updated.  ACCESS to the 2014 COLOR bridle trail map is at the very bottom of this page.

SILVER ANNIVERSARY 1989-2014:  We will be having a special reunion ride and dinner at Beaver Creek State Park Saturday September 27, 2014.  If you know former members of BCHA please share this information with them and invite them to join us. We have a special logo which is now available on a bumper sticker which sells for $3.00.  Cindy  Lyon, corresponding secretary and membership chair, has also made arrangements for this black logo to be applied to gray Tee shirts, crewneck sweatshirts and hoodies.  The logo will appear on the left top of the front of the shirt and in a much larger version across the back of the shirts.  Shirts costs will be $10.00 for tee shirts, $18.00 for crew neck sweat shirts and $25.00 for hoodies. Sizes over XL go up an additional $1.00 for each X.  You may place your orders with Cindy as soon as possible.  Additional details for the dinner will be added as they become available.

FIRE WOOD ALERT: Columbiana County has now been identified as having the emerald ash borer which is an insect that kills ash trees • Following recent confirmations of emerald ash borer in Wayne National Forest, and taking into account the infestations in surrounding states, the Ohio Department of Agriculture has expanded the state's emerald ash borer quarantine to include all 88 counties

The quarantine stipulates that ash materials and hardwood firewood cannot be taken from a quarantined area into a non-quarantined area • Despite the fact that quarantining the whole state will allow for ease of movement of ash materials and hardwood firewood, it is recommended that Ohioans continue to exercise caution when moving these materials

The federal quarantine, enforced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, remains in effect • This quarantine makes it illegal to transport ash trees, parts of ash trees and all hardwood firewood out of the state of Ohio   
Make your promise to not move firewood!   (posted April 18, 2012)
