The Vermont Horse Council (VHC) is all about equines and the people who love them. I am humbled every day by the stories that are shared about rescues, and wonderful rides and kids at camp learning new skills. VHC brings together a group of people who give generously of their time and resources to help – from organizing rides such as Willoughby, NEKET and Tunbridge, for example – to hauling brush and digging post holes at Groton State Park. They clear trails, hang signage, develop important guidelines to keep riders and horses safe, attend rallies, award scholarships, organize rides and have fun doing all that! Hundreds of hours are given each year by these dedicated horse-lovers.

We are fortunate to live in a state with many opportunities to enjoy our equine friends. And we have as many opportunities to give back to the horses, property owners, events and organizations that we enjoy.

As we approach the end of summer – and for many, a time with fewer rides, we have opportunities to learn, to help and to meet others who share your love of equus! Check our calendar for event details and watch for more information on upcoming fund raising efforts.
