The Ohio Horseman's Council Inc.
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.
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.
