ELCR is an excellent partner. They are much more than a non-profit. They are educators, networkers, and completely accessible. The work that they do helps individuals, communities and equestrians as a whole. Their organization links closely with ours as we work to promote an "all lands approach" and conservation.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Working with them on presenting educational seminars at the International Equestrian Festival, Quarterfest, the National Trails Symposium and the Southeastern Equestrian Trails Conference. I've observed many of their presentations and they are always professional, well spoken and know their audience.

I have had a long time association with the ELCR and have been very impressed with it's mission and it's accomplishments. I was introduced to the organization through a fellow supporter of conservation easement, and have encouraged others to support the ELCR. As a horse person and realtor who specializes in equine properties, I have great concerns in regards to the loss of land to development. The ELCR focuses on these issues, and has made great inroads in awareness throughout the equestrian population. Since the beginning the ELCR had run a very efficient program, and made amazing progress.

I have been a volunteer with ELCR every year at Rolex. I was a little disappointed this year because they will not be set up there. When I volunteered, my job was to talk with people from all over the world about the duties of ELCR. I was so impressed with the knowledge that I have received from Deb Balliet. I was able to help with so many questions from the visitors at The Ky Horse Park. When I needed help, I just called Deb and she was right there. Since my times volunteering, I was able to connect Deb with Florida, California, NewYork and Pennsylvania, just to name a few, so they now can start an ELCR in their area. I was most impressed with the ELCR and preserving land for our equine friends.

The Equine Land Conservation Resource provides an invaluable service not only to equine communities across the country, but also those who value the green spaces in their community. It furnishes resources, connects equine enthusiasts and professionals, and educates the general public/state officials about the importance of maintaining green spaces for trails, agriculture, etc. This committed organization takes a proactive approach by holding advisory group meetings, promoting green space concerns in communities, and making green space a top priority.

I am a huge supporter of the ELCR and their efforts to conserve land for equestrian activities. It is such an important issue that all equestrians need to care about and support. What really scares me is the fact that land is diminishing at the rate of 250 ACRES PER HOUR!!!

The ELCR is
a noble organization that works hard to educate the horse industry about the value of preserving land and I will continue to be a devoted supporter. Thank you for all that you do!

Dedicated team of tenacious and articulate activists who have made strides preserving trails for equestrians. They have helped educate government and the public at large as to the importance and breadth of the equestrian industry. ELCR is a great resource for statistics and case studies that can be used to support local causes.

ELCR is an excellent resource for anyone interested in the conservation of land for equestrian use, either on their own property or on public land. Their website is full of interesting and useful information, and their Equestrian Partners program has helped unite many organizations interested in equine-related land and resource conservation. I appreciate their leadership in this field and encourage others to take advantage of them to help preserve land for all horse-related activities.
