‘Horse-Friendly Zoning Practices in American Communities’ and the preceding 2015 guide, also by Christine Hughes, ‘Planning and Zoning Guide for Horse-Friendly Communities’ are both available for viewing or download at ELCR’s website (elcr.org) - Issues pulldown, Planning for Horses in Your Community section, Introduction area. Both are introduced by national expert Tom Daniels, PhD, professor, author and director at Univ. of Pennsylvania Department of City and Regional Planning.

Why attend this webinar? Horsemen/women and all horse loving citizens need to know about the zoning process, how to communicate their needs effectively to decision makers and planners, and what horse-friendly zoning language looks like as they tackle the issues of expanding development and loss of equine lands, facilities and trails. Most importantly, the webinar will bring home the need for the equine community to be proactive, and to actively advocate for horse-friendly planning and zoning language, thus establishing firm guidelines for equine land protection in the future.
