What We Do

Through education, communication, and advocacy the Council strives to favorably represent the views of the equine community to the general public, the media, government agencies, and elected officials.

The Council encourages related research, disseminates information, and generally supports the common interests of the equine community and all segments thereof.

The DEC collaborates with other areas of the agricultural community and helps facilitate communications between members of the equine industry and state and federal agencies.

We provide educational opportunities that further enhance the industry.

Our members also have a lot of fun while doing this!

Officers and Directors

All of our officers and board members are volunteers. We are involved because we have a passion for equines. We can always use more help. Join us at a meeting and learn more.
