Like so many good ideas the BVRC riding club developed by a need, a group of friends all interested in riding horses.  This group was concerned for their horses and themselves as the roads were becoming unsafe to ride.  Ernie and Lou Shook were one of several couples to plan the BVRC club trails.  Lou had heard of and ridden the Barrington Trails.  This concept helped Bull Valley families initiate a trail system of their own.  Several meetings were held in different homes to form a club.
