NMHC Foundation


Established in 1970, the New Mexico Horse Council
is a group of men and women dedicated to the improvement of the horse industry in New Mexico.

We have four stall front panels for sale, 10 ft wide x 8 ft high, $300 each.

To help accomplish our mission, the Horse Council provides booth space and a stall in front of the Horse Arena at the NM State Fair for use by member organizations to display a horse and information about their breed or discipline.  Contact Wayne Epsteen for more information.
