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.
