Idaho news (your state horse council probably needs you)

While returning from the Idaho Horse Council annual meeting, I couldn’t resist a photo of this view along the highway above Whitebird Canyon and historic battlefield. Doesn’t have a lot to do with the meeting, but hey, it represents part of the mystique of the horse industry and our heritage.

Council members had a good discussion about topics relevant to all parts of the country…health regulations, animal identification, noxious weeds, trail preservation, ways to reinvigorate the racing segment, competition for time and dollars, abandoned horses, animal welfare, slaughter, etc. I mention all this as an excuse to encourage all ApHC members to consider joining, or at least getting acquainted with, their respective state horse councils. The “power of association” really works and our community can’t afford to let others make policies and laws without us.
