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.
