In 1996, members of the United States Pony Club’s Task Force for the 21st Century identified loss of land and access as the greatest threat to the future of that organization – and to equestrian activities in general. Out of that committee came the founders of ELCR.
ELCR has made great headway in the last 20 years:
• Advanced the development of nearly 2,020 acres of new horse centers and parks
• Helped dozens of small farm owners work through planning and zoning challenges to keep their horses on their property in urbanizing areas
• Helped protect more than a quarter of a million acres of horse properties and more than 1,860 miles of equestrian and shared use trails in the last five years
• Developed the most comprehensive educational resource library available for horse land protection focusing on six core conservation issue areas accessible at www.elcr.org
• Provided professional one on-one counseling and technical assistance to hundreds of individuals, organizations and communities working on local horse land issues
