The American Horse Council Foundation (AHCF) is releasing a survey link for the National Economic Impact Study on June 5. The survey link will be available until August 1.

“The National Survey link will initially be distributed through equine organizations such as the American Quarter Horse Association, United States Equestrian Federation, Certified Horsemanship Association, American Paint Horse Association, and more,” said American Horse Council (AHC) President Julie Broadway. “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 participate, the better the data will be that is included in the final results.”

The 2017 Economic Impact Study will contain expanded demographics with youth participation and additional segments of the industry, including equine-assisted activities and therapies; sanctuaries and rescues; academic programs; and youth organizations. Representatives of these institutions and organizations, along with equine competition organizers, will receive targeted and individualized surveys. The main survey is designed to capture the impact of individual horse owners (whether commercial or recreational) and industry suppliers of equine-related goods and services. 

A separate data request is being sent directly to racetracks, off-track betting locations, and advanced deposit wagering businesses
