    OREGON EQUINE ECONOMIC IMPACT STUDY

    Oregon Horse Country conducted our state's first Equine Economic Impact Study inspring of 2017.

    The results of this type of survey could help:

    • Horse rescues and equine non-profits to get grants to support their work.
    • Equine-related business owners (trainers, farriers, show management, etc.) get business financing when you are looking to improve or grow your business.
    • Oregon Horse Country have a stronger voice (representing YOU) when state government issues arise that may negatively affect our equestrians and business owners.
    • Protect trails and help to support the equine lifestyle.
    • Increase awareness of issues affecting equestrians, such as urban expansion and loss of equestrian show venues.
    • Spotlight Oregon as a thriving horse country and bring equine-interested tourism to our region.
    • Create national recognition of Oregon’s healthy equine industry.

     

    We had nearly 1,100 responses!  Thank you to everyone who shared and encoruaged other equestrians to participate.  We are working on the summarization of this and will have it posted here as soon as we can.
