In September of 1967, a group of horse enthusiasts in Jefferson
County, Colorado realizing the danger of losing their riding
space and the right to keep their horses at or near their
homes, took steps to make their voices heard. They formed
the Jefferson County Horsemen's Association, now known at
the Jefferson County Horse Council, and amassed an impressive
list of over 1500 members.
Jefferson County Horse Council (JCHC) has taken steps to
insure this organization's continued effectiveness by electing
an agressive slate of officers and a board of twenty directors.
These folks need input from all concerned horsemen and women.
As a member of JCHC, you will enjoy many informative and
educational programs about horse care, horse keeping, trail
activities and the companionship of other concerned members
of the horse industry.
