Greetings!   We welcomed in a new board for 2023 and are ready to work for you.

We want to also thank our previous board members for all their hard work in doing

everything they did to keep this organization strong.

We have several clinic ideas that we will be offering throughout the year. We will continue to
train and coordinate with other agencies; and once again, we organized the

Emergency Preparedness Clinic in April 2023. Additionally, we did not have a booth this

year at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo; but we will have our materials at
a couple of booths throughout the Expo.

Membership renewals will be going out via email this month. Please renew and share with a
couple of your friends. It is important to support the mission of the Douglas-Elbert Horse
Council. We would love to see our members get more involved as we move into 2023. If you
have ideas or suggestions or want to be involved please reach out to me or any of our board
members. Please stay connected through our Facebook page and Website.
