The Ohio Horseman’s Council (OHC) began in 1972 as a grassroots movement of horse people who felt that an organization with neither breed affiliation nor private interest to serve was needed to represent the equestrians of Ohio. By 1974, the American Horse Council (AHC) officially incorporated the OHC, allowing the organization to learn how equestrians in other states solve zoning and bureaucratic issues.
OHC’s Wayne County Chapter of the Ohio Horseman’s Council was founded in 1976. Club members are active in a variety of horse-related activities including trail riding, camping, showing, driving, parades and maintenance of bridle trails. Members do not have to reside in Wayne County, and enthusiasts of any breed, size and gait are welcome.
