The Maryland Horse Council, Inc. (MHC) is a § 501(c)(6) trade association that represents all segments of the Maryland horse industry, at the state and local level. MHC has been representing the Maryland horse industry for over 35 years.

Our accomplishments include: i) working to make some forms of animal cruelty a felony, not a misdemeanor; (ii) endorsing the law that defined horses as livestock and equine activities as agricultural; and (iii) launching the Maryland Equine Transition Service (METS). We were also the first state horse council to take a position against equine slaughter. You can see more of our accomplishments here:

We need your help to continue our work. We have one full-time employee only, and we are otherwise an all-volunteer organization. Every dollar counts!
