Produced by APHIS’ National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS), this report examines trends in the equine industry during the last 18 years and provides Census of Agriculture data on demographic changes in the industry from 1850 to 2012.
Equine 2015 marks the third time that NAHMS has conducted a national study on the U.S. equine industry.

The study provides information representing 71.6% of U.S. equids and 70.9% of U.S. operations with five or more equids.
