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 monitor legislative issues affecting, horsemen, horsewomen and horses in the Commonwealth as well as provide education about these issues.
The vision of the Virginia Horse Council (VHC) is to be recognized as a leader in providing broad representation to all facets of the equine industry before the Virginia General Assembly and Congress. The VHC collaborates with other areas of the agricultural community and helps facilitate communications between members of the equine industry and state and federal agencies. The VHC aspires to keeps Virginia horsemen informed of regulations and pending legislation they may impact them, and to provide educational opportunities that further enhance the industry.
A huge THANK YOU to the Virginia Horse Festival for another amazing and entertaining equine event!

We look forward to working with everyone again next year!
