HEARING ON LARIMER COUNTY HORSE REGS TODAY

By Bob Silbernagel

A final hearing before the Larimer County Commissioners about proposed new horse rules is scheduled for today. The rules will govern horse boarding operations, trainers and those that host events. The information below is from the Colorado Horse Council.

"The Larimer County Board of County Commissioners assembled a group of citizens knowledgeable in the horse industry in early 2009. For 18 months this group has been working to develop recommended changes to the County's existing horse business regulations. The existing regulations were adopted in 1998 and are confusing, outdated, and apply very rigorous standards to boarding stables and training facilities. The proposed regulations will scale the review process to the size of the business and be quicker and less costly than the approval process currently required. The Board of County Commissioners are also considering a transition program for existing businesses to secure approvals using a simplified review process with substantially reduced fees. Information about the process conducted by county staff, leading horsemen in the County, and others is available on-line at http://www.larimer.org/horses/."
