Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.


Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The National Park Service preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. The C&O Canal NHP utilizes mules in order to assist with historical interpretive programs along the C&O Canal towpath. The mules are used to showcase historical uses of the breed when operating the canal up and down the towpath.
