Minnesota Horse Council Awards 2022 Grants

 The Minnesota Horse Council uses the revenue from the Minnesota Horse Expo to offer "seed money grants" for new projects & capital improvements by Minnesota equine groups.  

Due to the Corona virus pandemic, and the limited 2021 Minnesota Horse Expo, the funds available for grants were very limited for 2022.  However, the Minnesota Horse Council dipped into its reserves to award the following grants, announced at the Annual Meeting held January 15, 2022.

  1. Minnesota Historical Society – Forestville State Park, Forestville  $2,995
  2. Jack Pine Stables Therapeutic Riding, Akeley   $2,800
  3. Northern Lights Versatility Ranch Horse Assn., Chatfield   $705
  4. True Friends Riding Therapy Project , Annandale   $500

          Total Grants   $7,000




    Over the past 21 years, the Minnesota Horse Council has awarded $1,261,826 in grants to equestrian projects in Minnesota.  This is in addition to other charitable donations by the Horse Council, such as the Direct Funding awards, the Tony Gasser educational scholarships, and the Trails funding program.  The major portion of the Horse Council budget goes back into the Minnesota horse industry.
