URGENT: Harvey, Horses & The AHC Survey

Hurricane Harvey…there are horses drowning…why the heck should we care about filling out yet another survey? Because. Because the horrific footage of Harvey’s biblical flooding and the ongoing rescue efforts of people and animals reminds us that the government, run by and for the people, runs on data – NEEDS data in order to assist, help, provide, DO. In order to gather data, citizens – horse owners – need to engage. It is incumbent upon us, as citizens, to participate in data-gathering projects, such as the American Horse Council’s survey. And the participation of Maryland horse people this year has been shockingly low. It is true that the AHC survey is not a USDA census, so will the government pay attention? Yes, and here is why. On the federal level (and in most, but not all states), horses are considered livestock, which means that it is the United States Department of Agriculture that oversees health and welfare related issues. However, unlike the cattle industry, the horse industry and its equine population has always been more challenging to capture in calculations. This is where the American Horse Council comes into play. AHC is our voice on Capital Hill, and as such, AHC helps to fill in the government’s calculation gaps. Because engagement in this survey has been unusually low, AHC has extended the deadline...

Grant $$ available from MD Horse Industry Board

The Maryland Horse Industry Board is now accepting grant applications for research, educational and promotional projects that support horses or the equestrian community, or develop new opportunities for the Maryland horse industry. Application deadline is October 2. Among the organizations eligible for grants are non-profit organizations, clubs and associations, businesses, licensed farms and stables, government entities, schools and educational institutions. Projects of interest to the Board include (but are not limited to) those that develop new opportunities for the Maryland horse industry. Projects will be evaluated for their value to the industry, degree of industry promotion, size and scope of activity, financial need, potential for matching funds, benefits and quality of the written presentation. Grant requests should not exceed $3,000. The average grant amount is approximately $1,000. In 2017, 28 projects received $30,000 in grant allocations. Funding for these grants and for the Maryland Horse Industry Board is provided by the Maryland Feed Fund, which collects $6 on every ton of horse feed sold in Maryland. Since the fund was established in 2002, MHIB has awarded over $400,000 in grant monies to over 300 projects throughout Maryland. “Horses are a critical component to Maryland’s agricultural industry. The Maryland Horse Industry Board and The Feed Fund do a terrific job in helping to stimulate growth and opportunity in Maryland’s equestrian community—without using any government funding,”...
