What is the Council?
The South Carolina Horsemen's Council was formed in 1993 by equestrians as a statewide organization and is a member of the
American Horse Council. Regardless of the breed, riding discipline or segment of the horse community with which the member identifies, the SCHC is working to keep opportunities open for all. The Board of Directors is composed of
volunteer members as are all committees. SCHC activities and events are planned and coordinated by member volunteers. The Council is devoted to guaranteeing a future which continues to include horses, horse sports, and equine-related businesses in SC.
The SCHC main mission is educational . The SCHC may engage in limited lobbying efforts. These include distribution of educational materials and educating law makers about proposed legislation and impacts on equestrian owners, activities and revenue to SC.
The SCHC is a SC non-profit corporation. The SCHC is operated solely for such charitable and educational purposes as are consistent within the meaning of Section 501c3 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

The SCHC Committees
We encourage all SCHC members to volunteer for one or more of our committees. The success of this organization depends completely upon volunteers giving of their time and talents to the activities that our members have said they want us to conduct. Only through the personal participation of actively engaged members, can we take this organization to the level we all want it to achieve.
Check out our committees and then call 803-230-8810 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how you would like to become involved.
