Time to Renew Your Membership or Join Today!

Here we are at the end of another year - and as we prepare for 2018 we want to remind you to renew your membership or join today. Your membership supports a range of activities and projects including:

  • scholarships for youth, college students and adult members
  • free educational programs for members - saddle fitting, finding the right bit, and more
  • legislative outreach and representation of the equine industry
  • trail access and amenities

Our Annual Meeting will take place on January 20, 2018 at the Charlemont Restaurant in Morrisville, from 11:30 am - 2:30 pm. Elections of the Board of DIrectors and Officers will take place, and you must be a current member to vote. Karen Clark, of Horse Works will join us to share information about proper saddle fit.

The Vermont Horse Council describes how best to pass horses when you encounter them on the trail.
