Biggest youth OHV course so far in county held Friday

May 24, 2023

Last Friday, the Boundary County Sheriff’s Office provided the Idaho State Parks and Recreation Off-Highway-Vehicle (OHV) course to youth in the county. The training is not so much about the legal requirements of riding motorcycles and ATVs, but more about investing in the youth and teaching them skills to help with their riding ability and safety.

Boundary County offers so many places for young riders to get out and enjoy the outdoors on OHVs, by offering this training locally, free of charge, it is a positive way for the sheriff’s office to interact with the youth, many at the very beginning of their riding careers.

This was one of the largest classes with a wide range of ages, bikes and ATVs participating. The class was taught by Sheriff Dave Kramer, Undersheriff Rich Stephens, Ethan Mahakan of Idaho Parks and Rec, Brion Poston, who is on the Sheriff’s OHV advisory committee, and Brad Arnott.

The training had some added fun for the students with some larger pools of water from recent rain storms that they were able to follow their instructors through at the end of the actual training course.
