The Marin Horse Council (MHC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation serving to protect and preserve the equestrian presence in Marin County.
We are a central coalition of horse oriented individuals, groups, businesses, and professionals.
Hikers, walkers, joggers, equestrians: Your Participation is Needed to Protect Marin’s Open Space Preserves!
We represent the “foot people,” those who walk or ride a horse on fire roads and trails on public lands. Among us, we represent about 75% of the 1,000s who frequent these lands. We are at a critical intersection now that roll-out of the Final RTMP (Road and Trails Management Plan) has begun. Marin County Parks’ staff will be sharing a draft of their recommendations for each Region’s road and trail system at a series of open houses. The first, for Region One (covering King Mountain OSP, Baltimore Canyon OSP, Blithedale Summit OSP, Camino Alto OSP, Alto Bowl, OSP, and Horse Hill OSP), is scheduled for March 22 at the Mill Valley Community Center, 1: 30-4:30 PM (Please see the Marin County Parks Web Site: Events, for exact information).
The Marin Horse Council is dedicated to preserving the historic culture, supporting the presence and ensuring the future of equestrians, horses and horse facilities throughout Marin County. The council strives to promote and protect the general welfare of equestrians and equines through our educational seminars, newsletters and community involvement which includes the representation of all Marin horse people before municipal, county, and state agencies in matters of political interest important to equestrians, especially animal welfare, open space and land usage issues. Always eager to share the joy of horses, we also engage in community outreach with the goal of introducing the Marin horse community to others.
