As an Ohio Horseman's Council member, my fundamental duty is to better the equine community and to educate, promote, and enhance the equine industry. I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all and be well behaved in a manner that does not bring discredit to me or the Ohio Horseman's Council. I will be consistently mindful of others, honest in thoughts and deeds in my personal life, and exemplary in obeying the laws. I will cooperate with all legal authorities and their representatives.

I know that I alone am responsible for my own standards of performance and will take every opportunity to enhance and improve my level of knowledge and competence.

By using our Site, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions of use. Please view the following terms and conditions carefully.

The Ohio Horseman's Council Inc. (OHC) is a non-profit corporation organized in the state of Ohio to provide a vehicle for equine owners and supporters to share ideas and suggestions for all horse related issues, through education, organized trail rides, and other social and service functions. We provide resources to promote the building and maintenance of bridle trails throughout the state of Ohio and provide financial resources and volunteer services to fellow organizations that support equine related activities.

While OHC does have biannual State Meetings, monthly County Chapter meetings offer the best opportunity for folks with a common interest in a local area to socially interact. OHC enhances communication among horsemen, providing an opportunity to network and develop strategies to achieve common goals.

The Ohio Horseman's Council started in 1972 as a grass roots movement of horse people who felt that an organization with neither breed affiliation nor private interest to serve was needed to represent horsemen of Ohio. By 1974, OHC was officially incorporated and joined the American Horse Council. There, OHC learned how horsemen in other states solved zoning and bureaucratic problems. To date, there are more public riding areas in Ohio than in all the adjoining states combined.

 

County chapter membership forms can be found under the Chapter List or Chapter Map.
