Welcome Fellow Horse Enthusiasts!
The Colorado Horse Council advocates for the social, economic and legislative interests of all horse breeds within the State of Colorado, the US and worldwide. We are a trusted voice in the horse industry and our mission is to advocate for the health & wellbeing of all horses and promote initiatives that advance and enhance the equine industry. The Colorado Horse Council represents farmers, ranchers, breeders, trainers, showmen and women, retailers, veterinary care providers, service providers, feed producers and those who own horses within the State of Colorado.
In partnership with the Colorado Horse Development Authority, we launched a new Colorado Equine Microchipping Program in 2018 help reunite owners and their horses when separated as a result of natural disasters, theft or accidental escape.

The Colorado Horse Council organizes several unique Heritage Rides as fundraising events throughout the year. Heritage Rides offer participants the opportunity to ride with other horse enthusiasts and participate in exciting adventures and activities with their horses. Our first Heritage Ride of 2018 gave owners and horses (all breeds) the opportunity to race around the tracks of Arapahoe Park Racetrack and try their hand at wrangling cattle, obstacle courses and much more.

Colorado Equine City Hall (CECH)
The Colorado Horse Council is the industry leader of all state horse councils when it comes to providing member clubs and organizations with a one-stop-shopping, web-based Customer Relation Management (CRM) database tool! We are calling our CRM project, “Colorado Equine City Hall”, or CECH for short.
As such, we want to let you know that we have completed phase one of releasing the new CRM tool. This phase included the importing of all Colorado Horse Council memberships from our prior database. CHC members are now able to view their membership profile, edit their personal information, pay renewal dues orders and shop in the Horse Town Store.
Our next phase is working on the benefits of what a CRM can do for YOUR club/organization! A few of the key benefits to your organization for being part of our CECH project include:
- Allow clubs and organizations to become united under one website, with links to each organization’s specific website.
- Assist each organization with their outreach, club administration and networking.
- A centralized, industry calendar of events (shows, trail rides, meetings, special training/clinics, etc.)
- Membership database maintenance, including generating renewals (i.e., dues orders) and collecting online payments.
- And much, MUCH more!!!
If you are a horse-related club or organization in the state of Colorado and would like to participate, please refer to invitational letter from CHC’s CEO/Executive Director, Bill Scebbi.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR PARTICIPATION!
