On September 26, 2018, The Canon City Daily Record reported that American Horse Council was, or may continue to be, a subject of a material diversion of assets in an article titled, "Colorado woman accused of embezzling nearly $600,000 from nonprofit horse advocacy group, lawsuit says." For this reason, we have issued a Moderate Concern CN Advisory as the allegations have yet to be confirmed. For more information regarding this matter, please see The Canon City Daily Record article.


This charity has received a Moderate Concern Advisory due to an open or pending investigation regarding allegations of possible illegal activity, improper conduct, organizational mismanagement, or other matters of concern. Please note that this investigation has not concluded and that the allegations being investigated have not been confirmed by the U.S. legal system. Charity Navigator aims to provide donors and users with as much information as possible in order to make an informed giving decision. This advisory will be updated once we become aware that the investigation is completed.
