The Virginia Horse Council is your voice for the expanding equine industry in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Council is a not-for-profit organization formed by horsemen for Virginia horsemen. The membership and Board of Directors represent all breeds. The purpose of the Virginia Horse Council is to promote and improve the horse industry in Virginia.
Our mission is to serve as the umbrella organization of the Virginia equine community and to serve as the lobbyist on issues affecting, horsemen, horsewomen and horses in the Commonwealth. This is a mission that your Virginia Horse Council Board of Directors takes seriously and is both committed to following and is dedicated to fulfilling.
We at the Virginia Horse Council would like to send a special “Thank You” to The Meadow Event Park for a wonderfully fun and productive Virginia Horse Festival! Even though the weather did not always cooperate, the many dedicated equestrians and horse lovers of all ages still turned out in large numbers to see the many events, clinics and demos. Our Horse Council booth was often so crowded, people were spilling out into the isle! Thanks to everyone that stopped by and showed their support by joining our membership or just expressing support for what we do!
As well, the New Horse Owner’s Certification Course was a huge success and plans are in the works to take this on the road. More details on that will be forthcoming soon!
The Virginia Horse Council looks forward to next year’s Horse Festival with great anticipation!
