The King County Executive Horse Council is an umbrella organization, uniting horsemen of all breeds and interests. The KCEHC
supports the horse industry and equestrian way of life by
advocating for the
protection and creation of equestrian trails and facilities.
We are the official horse advisors to government and developers.
The KCEHC has promoted the creation of a trail ordinance,
equestrian overlays and trail language for comprehensive and

developed educational brochures.
The KCEHC publishes
three brochures: Share the Road with Horses, Basic Horse Management,
and Trail Etiquette, Safety and Equipment. Our
newsletter keeps you informed about equestrian issues.
