SCORP: Thank you Equestrians


NHHC is very pleased to say Thank You to those organizations who sent in recreation information for the Statewide Outdoor Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP). This is an important State Plan to be included in so planners are aware of equestrian recreation, our needs and its impact to NH and the equine industry.

Road Safety for Horses Task Force

The NH Horse Council wants drivers to
"Share the Road" When approaching horses 
Pass SLOW, Pass WIDE

The New Hampshire Horse Council has organized a Road Safety Task Force Committee to create information materials that will outreach and communicate to individual drivers, municipalities and  state and town officials about safety for horses on the road.

If you would like to work with the NHHC on this important issue or just give us your ideas, please e-mail Diane at:, so you can be included on the contact list.

We will soon have a page on this website just to post updates and "doings" of the Road Safety Task Force. So visit often....
