The Alpena County Horsemen's Club is a group of people with a common yet diverse interest in horses and related activities. Member's interests include showing (at local, state, and national levels), training, breeding, trail riding, horse camping, search and rescue, and driving. We are all about enjoying and getting the most out of the time that we spend with our horses. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in horses.
