LUNDBOM LAKE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT- PRESS RELEASE

I know many of you enjoy Lundbom Lake every year around this time. This popular horse camping spot in the grasslands of Beautiful Merritt British Columbia is getting so busy that on long weekends it is nearly impossible to find a corral for you horses. So together with the Forestry and Backcountry Horsemen they are planning on rebuilding it so they will be lots of corrals for everyone.

Here is the Press release just released by Backcountry Horsemen BC :



   For Immediate Release!  
The Lundbom Lake Improvement Project
Help Us Help you….ride, ride…. Ride!

     The Back Country Horsemen Society of BC (BCHBC) and Recreation Sites and Trails BC (RSTBC) are working in partnership to make improvements to one of the most popular equestrian camping and trail riding venues in the province of BC.  Riders from all over BC and the State of Washington come here to enjoy holiday time with their horses and mules.   The site is urgently in need of an upgrade!

This is a provincial project spearheaded by  the Okanagan and Yarrow Chapters  of BCHBC.  There are 3 main priorities:
1.  building a concrete lock block manure storage bin
2.  removing existing old pole corrals (10) and replacing with (30) 12x12’ pipe corrals
3.  fencing off the wet area immediately behind the corrals

RSTBC and BCHBC are looking for partners in this exciting project in the form of cash donations, materials (concrete lock blocks, wooden posts, hardware), or equipment and time.  We now have cash partners: 
Back Country Horsemen Chapters:  Yarrow, Kamloops, North Vancouver Island, North Thompson,
Shuswap, Aldergrove and Okanagan.   Recreation Sites and Trails BC: Cascades  District, Chilliwack Riding Club,
Horse Council Zone 2 and Panorama Veterinarian Services in Kelowna.  But we need more help to provide riders with a first class place to recreate.  You can also bring your bike and fishing rod!

If you or your organization wish to help partner in some way, please contact one of the two project coordinators listed below.   A volunteer work party is planned for October 2, 3, 4 and 5th of 2014.  RSVP:

Beautiful views and lakes around the area

  1. Does this mean that they'll be expanding the horse camping area as well by expanding from 12-30 corrals? It would be nice to have some more level sites where larger Lq's could fit into.

  2. I have always loved the coloured horses as they remind me of my first pony Tammy. Super !
