American Quarter Horse Association Partners with Equestrian Land Conservation Resource

AQHA Press Release

Amarillo, Texas – The American Quarter Horse Association announced today that it has become a lead equestrian partner with the Equestrian Land Conservation Resource. “We have long been involved in land issues in conjunction with the American Horse Council,” said Tim Case, AQHA Manager of Public Policy. “This partnership program offers yet another way to keep land open for stabling, competing and enjoying horses.”

The Equestrian Land Conservation Resource is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting access to and conservation of land for all types of equestrian use. ELCR raises awareness among this country’s 7.1 million equestrians about the need to conserve their stabling, riding and showing land, as well as provides them with how-to information, assists grassroots efforts nationally and encourages collaboration with other equestrian and conservation groups. Action is most effective at the local level, where obtaining information about land use policies, liability, easements, trusts, stewardship/impact issues and the rights of all involved can be daunting. ELCR provides information to individuals and groups in order to impact land protection at the local level.

“We began the lead equestrian partner program so that we would be able to reach horse owners in a wide-ranging and effective manner,” said Kandee Haertel, Executive Director of ELCR. “AQHA’s extensive membership base and the level of involvement their members have with their horses makes them perfect partners. We look forward to working with their staff and membership.”

AQHA is the world’s largest equine registry and membership organization, with more that 4 million American Quarter Horses registered worldwide and AQHA membership numbering more than 350,000. The Association’s international headquarters in Amarillo, Texas, maintains the pedigrees and registration records of all American Quarter Horses and oversees various programs and incentives – including races, shows and recreational activities – which promote America’s oldest distinct breed of horse.
