Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) and Congressman Ed Whitfield (R-KY) have introduced the Interstate Horseracing Improvement Act of 2011.  Its expressed purpose is “to prohibit the use of performance-enhancing drugs in horseracing.”  The bill amends the Interstate Horseracing Act (IHA).  By including the bill within the IHA, it applies the new prohibitions and requirements to any race subject to an interstate wager under the provisions of the IHA.  In effect, this means nearly every race in the country. Read More

Welcome to our website!

We have consolidated Colorado Horse Council (CHC), Colorado Horse Development Authority (CHDA) and the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo (RMHE) into one site making it much easier for you to find the information that you are looking for. Each department has it's own section and organized with it's own content. We hope this new platform makes your experience on our site much more enjoyable!

To learn more about each organization, you can visit our About page.

The Equine City Hall is also part of our organization and from time to time you may be sent back & forth between the two sites.
