Re:        House Congressional Horse Caucus

Tell Your Member(s) of Congress to Renew or Join the House Congressional House Caucus

We urge your continued support of the horse industry in public policy on Capitol Hill by contacting your respective Member(s) of Congress in the U.S. House of Representatives to either renew their commitment/membership in the House Congressional Horse Caucus, or by joining the House Congressional Horse Caucus (if your Member(s) of Congress are not currently a member).

Education of any industry on Capitol Hill is the key to success in public policy, and Members of Congress have committed their support of the horse industry through education, with the formation of the House Congressional Horse Caucus. A Congressional Caucus is an excellent, yet critical vehicle on Capitol Hill for information dissemination, education, and relationship building by directly joining an industry with Congress.

The horse industry has a wonderful story to tell in terms of its positive economic impact on local, state, and national economies, job creation, equine therapy, equine rescue & sanctuaries, the racing sector, and land management. Lawmakers are eager to understand more about the industry and its benefits, and it is important that they receive responsible, comprehensive information in order to make decision impacting the horse industry.

The American Horse Council has made it easy to contact your respective Member(s) of Congress through our automated system to urge their support for the House Congressional Horse Caucus. Take a few minutes and –
