Our mission is to foster an inclusive, equitable, and prosperous equine community in Vermont. We strive to promote and protect the interests and well-being of all equine enthusiasts while recognizing the importance of our natural environment, the rights of public and private property stewards, state laws and regulations, recreation, and local businesses.

Our Impact

We're making trails safer for everyone

We’re working to ensure the safety of all trail users, including bikers, hikers, and horse riders. By promoting mutual respect and education, the Vermont Horse Council plays a pivotal role in making biking and riding trails in the state accessible and safe for everyone to enjoy.

Equine businesses are thriving in Vermont

The Vermont Horse Council actively promotes and supports the equine industry within the state, recognizing its significant economic, employment, and material contributions. Through collaborative efforts, we advocate for policies and initiatives that enhance the growth and sustainability of equine-related businesses while preserving and strengthening the rich heritage of horsemanship in the state.

Education and Knowledge

Catering to equine enthusiasts, the Vermont Horse Council organizes or collaborates with other equine organizations to bring a diverse range of events to Vermont throughout the year. These include educational workshops, clinics, exhibitions and on-line educational opportunities. Our goal is to showcase the beauty, versatility, and skill of horses and riders alike.
