With this new program, founded in 2009,  the Minnesota Horse Council assumes a leadership role in the state’s response to Unwanted Horses in Minnesota. The Horse Welfare Committee will perform this function through participation in the legislative process, through education of horse owners and through special projects to reduce the numbers of unwanted horses.
