The South Carolina Horsemen's Council was incorporated as a SC non-profit corporation, April 14, 1993. It is a state-wide, all volunteer 501 c(3) Tax Exempt organization. This 501c3 tax exempt status was granted by the IRS December, 24, 2009 (retroactive to August 28,2009); and replaced the 2002 agricultural 501c5 status.
Since its founding the SCHC has been involved in issues which impact the horse community and reflect our motto that SC Horses Mean SC Business. The many activities of the SCHC always promote our purpose which is to protect and further our right to own and keep horses for business and recreation. SCHC strives to connect, communicate, and educate our members, our elected and government officials, and the general public about the horse community and the industry we support.
