AHC Launches surveys for Members and Non-Members

(Washington, D.C., August 1, 2022): Beginning August 1, 2022 the American Horse Council is launching two surveys to solicit thoughts and opinions from both AHC members and the equine community at-large.


August 1- August 15 – AHC members will receive an email directing them to a survey to help collect information regarding their legislative and regulatory priorities. Sample questions include:


  • What are your top legislative priorities? (rank) Tax; Immigration; Horse slaughter/welfare; Soring; Trails maintenance/support; other


  • What are your top regulatory priorities? (rank) Import/export of horses; Disease mitigation; Land use; Transportation; Wild horse & Burro issues; other


Each week starting August 1, through AHC social media channels (FaceBook & Twitter) followers will be asked to respond to one question to collect their thoughts and opinions on specific topics. These questions are open to members and non-members. Examples for August include:


  • Week #1: What is the number one issue facing the equine industry that needs immediate attention? And how would you suggest it be addressed?


  • Week #2: What is your position on allowing horses to be shipped to Canada/Mexico?

If the SAFE Act were implemented and horses could no longer be shipped across the borders, who/how would you address the 30,000 unwanted horses per year that will need assistance/housing?


  • Week #3: What specific occupation in the equine industry needs to be professionalized the most?


  • Week #4” What is your “go-to” source for information about what’s happening in the horse industry?
