The United Professional Horsemen's Association along with the American Hackney Horse Society and American Saddlebred Horse Association invite its members to participate in a survey for the American Horse Council Foundation's 2017 National Equine Economic Impact Study.
This survey is designed to capture the impact the equine industry has on the economy.The study is designed to measure the financial impact of individual horse owners (whether commercial or recreational) and industry suppliers of equine-related goods and services, such as equine veterinarians, trainers, breeders, lesson providers, trail guides/outfitters, retail suppliers, boarding stables, and farm managers. The study will enable the horse industry to educate the public, the media, as well as national and state elected officials regarding the industry's economic size, impact and importance.
"We hope everyone that receives the survey link will participate. This is an opportunity to showcase how important the vast equine industry is to the United States economy, and the more horse owners, breeders, riders, trainers, racetracks, shows, rodeos and other industry suppliers that participate, the better the data will be that is included in the final results," said AHC President Julie Broadway.
This survey will only remain active through Monday, July 17th.
As an active contributor to the equine industry, you may receive a survey invitation from multiple sources. Only one response from each household is needed. However, if different members of a
household manage different horse eelated activities, more than one response per household is acceptable. Please note that all responses are completely anonymous and confidential.
