Horses are an important aspect of life in Vermont. From the days of draft horses working on the farm, the breeding of Morgan horses to our equestrian community, over 75,000 horses can be found in Vermont today. Occasionally, you will see them on the road.

Kick-off  - Equine Industry Surveys begin this summer!

We are moving ahead with the firs of two surveys for the Vermont Equine Industry Economic Impact Study. Beginning in July, VHC volunteers will attend equine events across the state to survey participants and spectators to gather information for the the study. The results of this survey will help us make credible estimates of the economic impact of equine events in Vermont.  This information will strengthen the Horse Council’s knowledge of the industry, and its requests for support from the private and public sectors.

Volunteers are needed to help administer the surveys - if you'd like to help contact vthorsecouncil@gmail.com.
