Deadline to Take AHC Survey to Update Economic Impact Information Extended Until August 18th

If you have not already completed an American Horse Council Economic Impact Survey, please do so. The Virginia Horse Industry Board has contracted with the AHC to provide economic impact data for Virginia’s horse industry. The plan is for these surveys to be conducted on a regular basis so there is current data to use when speaking with local and state government officials.

The American Horse Council Foundation (AHCF) announced that it will be extending the deadline to complete the horse owner and supplier survey to update the National Economic Impact Study to August 18th.

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. To take the horse owner & supplier survey please click here:

The 2017 Economic Impact Study will contain expanded demographics with youth participation and additional segments of the industry, including Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies, Equine Sanctuaries and Rescues, Equine Academic Programs, and Equine Youth Organizations.
