The Equestrian Land Conservation Resource (ELCR) is pleased to announce that the Arabian Horse Association has joined a growing list of breed organizations who have become members of our Equestrian Partners Program. Their participation demonstrates their understanding that the rapid loss of open land for horses and horse activities is a threat to all horse owners despite differences in breed or discipline preferences. When hearing the news of AHA’s membership, ELCR CEO Deb Balliet noted, “AHA is to be commended for recognizing the importance of equestrian land conservation with regard to its breeding farms, and the continued success of the Arabian Horse Association. AHA’s leadership is forward thinking and action oriented. We look forward to working with them.”

With 46,000 members, the Arabian Horse Association (AHA) provides many opportunities for Arabian horse enthusiast to tap into the Arabian horse lifestyle. The AHA is a full service breed association and registry for owners of Arabian, half-Arabian, and Anglo-Arabian horses. For more information about the AHA, visit

The Equestrian Partners Program is a growing coalition of organizations from across the country that are committed to helping ELCR fulfill its mission of conserving land and access for all equines. Despite their diverse interests and activities, our Partner members recognize that with land in the U.S. being developed at the rate of 250 acres/hour, the future of equestrian life as we know it is endangered. If your organization would like to join our national efforts to save land for horses, visit, or call ELCR at 859-455-8383 for more information.
