The Sound Horsekeeping sign program recognizes horse owners in Snohomish County and on Camano Island who have taken actions to improve pastures, reduce mud, manage manure and provide wildlife habitat on their property. These actions not only keep horses healthier and make chores more efficient, they also protect streams, creeks, wetlands, and ultimately, Puget Sound.

If you’re managing your property in a way that protects horse health and the environment, you’re probably eligible to earn our Sound Horsekeeping sign!  Please note that you must live within Snohomish County or on Camano Island to qualify.

What do you have to do?

Here are some examples of practices that can help you earn the Sound Horsekeeping sign:

  • Reduce Mud
