Georgia Horse Owners Sought for Survey

Georgia's Agricultural Commodity Commission for Equine (ACCE) has announced that the first Equine Economic Impact Study is under way, and the organization is seeking those involved in that state's equine industry to participate. The ACCE is working in conjunction with the University of Georgia's Department of Agricultural Economics for the survey.

"This study will show the value and impact of the horse industry in a way that has never been available before," said Jim Gibby, ACCE chairman, in a letter to Georgia horse owners and equine organizations. "We hope that our industry will benefit from this study and be able to promote the equine industry more successfully with hard scientific data to back up this value. This study will also help the commission to better understand the needs of Georgia's equine owners and give us the ability to serve you better in the future."

A link to the survey, which will be available through the end of November, can be found at, and all responses remain anonymous.
