Colorado Horse Council Memberships

The Colorado Horse Council is a member-based, non-profit organization. Memberships aid CHC in allowing us to pay for a full-time lobbyist, thus keeping tabs on all matters concerning the equine industry. Our goal is to protect the rights of horse owners in the state of Colorado, and the membership fees help us to do just that.

The four membership types offered allow you to choose the one best for you, whether you’re an individual or part of a family, a club, organization, business, ranch, etc. The benefits offered with each membership varies. Two memberships types include Personal Excess Liability Insurance, while three types offer voting privileges at our Annual Meeting. All four memberships provide grounds admission tickets to our annual Rocky Mountain Horse Expo, as well as providing the peace of mind knowing we are looking out and fighting for your best interests in the equine industry.

Please take a look below at the four (4) membership types currently offered to find the one that most closely fits your needs. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us using the form at the bottom of this page, or by calling us at (303) 292-4981.
