No advocacy experience required! We'll convene in the morning to prep for legislative meetings, then meet in small groups with legislators. When legislators are in session, we'll hear presentations and engage in discussions and Q&A with industry members, legislative staffers and special guests.

Welcome to the Maryland Horse Council!

Established in 1985, the Maryland Horse Council (MHC) seeks to unify, inform, and represent Maryland’s diverse horse community. As the industry’s state legislative representative and trade association, MHC protects and promotes the horse industry by providing a united voice in the Maryland state legislature and state agencies, by interacting with the media and the general public, and by keeping its members informed on issues that affect them and their horses.

In 1998, the MHC's lobbying efforts were successful in advancing legislation that created the Maryland Horse Industry Board (MHIB) with the Department of Agriculture. The MHIB serves as a commodity board that promotes the horse industry and licenses stables in Maryland.
