Horse Council met in Santa Fe on February 11. The morning was
spent learning about the process of lobbying and talking to
legislators. We were given a brief tour of the 4th Floor of the
Capitol, where the offices of the Governor are located,
and took this photo in the Cabinet Room.

The afternoon business meeting included election of officers
and planning for the rest of 2014 and beyond.
In the evening we had a booth at AgFest, held annually at the Convention Center.
We met a lot of people, and recruited some new members or membership renewals.
It was a busy and productive day!
