Join the Maryland Horse Council!

The Maryland Horse Council has a unique membership structure, which allows it to represent the broadest spectrum of people involved with or interested in horses. Our membership consists of five membership categories: associations, farms, businesses, charities/foundations, and individuals. The board is comprised of a proportionate number of representatives from each of the five membership categories to the total number of members. Prior to each election, this number is determined at the discretion of the Executive Committee.

All Members can now enjoy a yearly subscription to the Equiery with their Membership!
