New Jersey Horse Council


The New Jersey Horse Council’s (NJHC) mission is to disseminate information about horses and horse farms to the general public; to continue the education of horse owners about the care of horses and their environment; and to promote the interests of the entire horse industry in New Jersey through public information and the development of a close working relationship among individuals and organizations who recognize the importance of the horse industry to the economic and social well-being of the State of New Jersey.

The New Jersey Horse Council  SUPPORTS the NYC Carriage Horses for:

• making a positive contribution to history and humanity, giving the public a unique opportunity to interact with the animals that helped build America

• giving the Working Horse the opportunity to make a living for itself and its owners in a time honored industry

• giving native New Yorkers and visitors to the Big Apple a chance to experience a living, breathing animal, working in partnership with its driver in 21st century America

• setting a standard for excellent horse care in a city environment.

(Resolution passed January 2014)
