We provide the Kansas Equine industry with leadership & direction through education, promotion and public policy advocacy.
Founded in 1992, with first memberships in 1993. The Kansas Horse Council provides leadership with tasks such as getting the Livestock Limited Liability statute passed, assisting with the 1996 FEI Endurance ride in KS- monitoring health issues, supporting trail maintenance, promoting new businesses, providing education, and staying aware of legislative topics that could impact equine ownership or activities. Acting as a network resource for your horse related questions from zoning, fence laws, body condition scoring, where to find something, we try to help point you in the right direction.
Founded in 2003, the KHC Foundation is dedicated to providing academic scholarships to promote trades and higher learning endeavors for equestrians.
EquiFest of KS- the state's biggest equine exposition, featuring world renowned clinicians, educational sessions, and vendors with everything horse, from home decor, clothing, tack, feed, barn, and transportation.
HorseCare 101- a collaborative educational seminar where attendees participate in lecture and labs with different topics each year.
Regional Gatherings-bringing members and non-members together for news updates, events, and speakers to inform, engage and update industry participants.
