Our Goals

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.
