The South Carolina Horsemen's Council is committed to the welfare of the SC equine population.
“The SC Horsemen's Council took calls and emails from those who needed information and help evacuating SC. SCHC used social media as a form of communication to keep SC horsemen abreast of places to go.
We are grateful to those who hooked up, fueled up and WENT to evacuate those who didn't have the means to do so. And to those who rearranged their personal livestock to accommodate strangers. We have seen SC horsemen at their Best! ”
