President of the Back Country Horsemen of New Mexico, Southern Rio Grande Chapter

“Doña Ana County is a horseman’s dream—wide open spaces, beautiful vistas, and places like the Butterfield Stagecoach trail and Broad Canyon cultural sites that hold hundreds and even thousands of years of history. As a horse trainer and a teacher of natural horsemanship, I believe designating the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument is vital to our region. It will forever protect our wide open spaces, bring more jobs, and ensure our own legacy includes passing down the Organ Mountains for our children and grandchildren.”

“Permanently protecting the iconic Organ Mountains and the surrounding natural treasures as a National Monument will boost our economy and benefit Doña Ana County. We know that stimulating tourism, attracting new residents, and creating jobs goes hand in hand with permanently protecting public lands.”
