The Colorado Horse Council, Inc. is a grass-roots, all-breed, non-discipline specific organization dedicated to linking the horse owners and the horse industry of the State of Colorado into a powerful, common voice in order to protect their common equine interests through legislation and education. It also employs a full-time contract lobbyist, who works with the State Legislature on horse and agriculture-related issues.
We hope you all will join us at our annual Rocky Mountain Horse Expo the weekend of March 9th – 11th, with some pre-clinics running on the 7th and 8th, as well. You can learn more on our RM Horse Expo page (on the menu at the top). The Expo is a great opportunity to watch and learn from clinicians from a variety of disciplines and working with a variety of breeds, as well as shop in our tradeshow, view beautiful equine art at the Art in the Park and enjoy a fun-filled evening watching The Mane Event on Friday and Saturday evening! For more information click here. I look forward to seeing you there!
We are farmers and ranchers, breeders, trainers, showmen and women, retailers, veterinary care providers, service providers, feed producers, and individuals who seek to maintain our rights to own, maintain, and use horses in our state.

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!
