AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Bridget Harrison
The American Horse Council (AHC) invites all recreational riders and equestrians to attend the AHC Recreation Forum Tuesday, June 22, 2010, from 1:00–5:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency hotel on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. The recreation forum will emphasize issues of importance to recreational riders around the country.
The highlight of the program will be two panel discussions. The first panel will focus on building better relationships between equestrians and local federal land mangers and will include leaders from the National Park Service, National Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management and other federal agencies. The second panel will spotlight the shared interest of equestrians, other recreation groups and conservationists.
The forum will also include several presentations from groups such as Backcountry Horsemen of America and the American Quarter Horse Association.
“This is a great opportunity for recreational riders in the Washington, DC area to hear what concerns are on the mind of other recreational riders, what national groups around the country are doing, and how equestrians can better work with their land mangers,” said AHC Legislative Director Ben Pendergrass.
The recreation forum is being held in conjunction with the AHC national issues forum. The cost to attend the recreation forum is $25. For more information on registering for the Forum, visit www.horsecouncil.org/events.php
