Testifying at Public Hearings

The Connecticut Horse Council, Inc. represents the voice of the horse industry in all governmental issues. We monitor and pursue local, state, and federal regulations and legislation. We were directly involved with the passage of state statutes which protect equestrians on roadways, the passage of the equine limited liability law, and the creation of a state Equine Advisory Council which will work with the Department of Environmental Protection to ensure trails remain open to horses. CHC has also actively supported the interests of horse owners during town zoning and ordinance changes. Members attend and testify at public hearings, monitor active legislation, and work with legislators as needed. Our members also sit on various state and town committees, such as the Greenways Council, and the state Trails Advisory Board. CHC is your advocate with elected officials.
