ABOUT ELCR’s CONSERVATION
The Conservation Partners Program is a national membership program for organizations. The Partners and their members play a critical role in ELCR’s mission to educate horsemen across the country about the immediate need to conserve land for equine-related activity. Our Partners are conservation minded organizations ranging from trail groups to national breed and discipline organizations, to land conservancies, government agencies and beyond. The diversity of groups includes breed associations & registries; racing, competition and discipline associations; equestrian parks and facilities (public & private); land trusts; recreational riding and driving organizations; media companies; government agencies; and equine & equestrian retail and wholesale companies. As an individual, you can participate in Conservation Partner membership by encouraging your organization, club, agency or company to become a Partner. We can also direct you to member organizations in your area.

At ELCR, we are actively involved in helping preserve over 100,000 acres of land a year for direct horse activities, pastures, farms, and trails. This would not be possible without the involvement of our Partners, who are the heart and soul of a growing movement that recognizes the time has come to act to protect land for equine use for all time.
