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.

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make them bigger! This is a busy group and they work very hard to get the message out and work with all kinds of initiatives. I'd love to see them take on even more projects!

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.

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

I've seen how they obtain government grants for trail preservation. ELCR had help me prepare for a public hearing on a proposed development that would have obliterated a wildlife corridor.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

cause a bill to be passed that would limit development from encroaching into the sensitive ecological wilderness that is prized by equestrians.

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.

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

joining together equestrian organizations and partnerships to discuss common issues related to land and resource conservation.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their interest in addressing land and resource management issues on horse farms, recognizing that these issues tie directly to successful conservation practices.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very experienced, professional, and interested in engaging with other organizations.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

finance extensive conservation of land for equestrian activities across the country.
