Please join the American Horse Council and the equine community in celebration of National Meet a Horse Day, Saturday July 17th, 2021.

“Part of the AHC’s work is to introduce people to horses and increase accessibility not only to horses, but the horse industry as a whole,” said AHC President Julie Broadway. “Summer is a great time for families to connect with their local stables, and plan to add horse activities to their schedules.”

The American Horse Council is encouraging people to host open barn events for National Meet a Horse Day.

There are so many wonderful ways to be involved with horses. From a multitude of riding and driving activities, to in hand events, or volunteering at your local equine rescue. The horse industry has something for everyone!

To help share the joy of horses with others, the AHC encourages those in the industry to consider hosting an open barn or events to encourage the general public to meet and get to know the wonder and beauty of horses.

Post your event and use the hashtag #MeetAHorse on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to be featured on the AHC’s social media pages!

If you have any questions, please contact the AHC at info@horsecouncil.org
