Horse Industry - 122 Billion Annually
Most horse owners don’t realize that the horse industry is a $122- billion-dollar a year industry; to put this into context, the NFL is a $9.8 Billion dollar a year industry. Which makes us 12 times the size.
We are the largest recreational entity in the U.S. and western horses make up close to 80% of the domestic horse population.
We Could Be A Powerful Voice
As well-heeled as the horse industry is, we could and should be one of the most powerful lobbies in the U.S. and we darn sure should not have to be afraid of the Animal Rights groups, nor should we be playing
defense all the time.
While there are groups out there claiming to advocate for and protect the horse industry, most have been wholly ineffectual and do the bidding of one sector and do not have the best interest of the western horse in mind.
The time to save our industry is now before it is truly too late. Extremist special interest groups have been allowed to run rough-shod over us. These groups have been insidiously working behind the scenes to pass harmful laws, while those in a position to combat them have done nothing.
