Press release

The American Horse Council will hold its first-ever webinar on November 14.

On November 14th at 3:00 pm ET, the American Horse Council, will host its first ever webinar “Embracing Change.”

AHC President Julie Broadway will kick off the webinar with a short introduction about the AHC and the work that the AHC does on a daily basis in Washington, DC. Next, Ben Pendergrass, AHC’s Senior VP of Policy and Legislative Affairs will discuss how results of the election will impact the upcoming Congress. “The upcoming election could significantly change the make-up of Congress,” said Mr. Pendergrass. “This could impact the debate around issues important to the horse industry and will largely determine how productive the next Congressional session will be.”

Two special guests will also be speaking, David Foley, Executive Director of the American Association of Equine Practitioners, and Kimberly Brown, Associate Publisher/Editor of Stable Management Magazine.

Of particular interest, Kimberly Brown will be reviewing the results of Stable Management’s 2016 Business Survey.

“This year’s survey is a mix of good and not-so-good news,” said Brown. “For the first time since 2012, the results did not show positive overall economic uptick on the respondents’ equine businesses compared to the previous year. This tells us that the industry is still in recovery mode.”

The webinar is open to both AHC members and non-members—we encourage everyone to attend! To register for the webinar, please click here. If you have any questions, please contact Ashley Furst at afurst@horsecouncil.org.
