American Horse Council Announces Congressional Cavalry Program

WASHINGTON, DC - The American Horse Council (AHC) and member organizations are initiating “The Congressional Cavalry Program,” a new direct grassroots effort, to better represent and serve the horse industry in Washington, DC.

The purpose of the program is to identify at least one member of participating organizations in each Congressional District across America who will agree to contact his/her Representative/Senator or other federal officials when asked.

AHC member organizations represent all segments of the horse industry.

“If we can involve just one member in these organizations in each Congressional district across the country in the grassroots effort,” said AHC President Jay Hickey, “think of the potential effect that could have when contacting Representatives and Senators about issues important to the industry.”

Horse owners, breeders, veterinarians, trainers, competitors, recreational riders, shows, stables and others who desire to be involved in grassroots efforts in Washington are encouraged to join the Congressional Cavalry Program.

“We are hoping to include individuals from as many AHC member organizations as possible to get a cross-section of the horse industry identified in each district to represent themselves, their organization and the horse industry when called upon,” said Hickey.

Member organizations already signed onto the Congressional Cavalry include the American Association of Equine Practitioners, the American Paint American Paint Horse Association, the American Quarter Horse Association, the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association, the U.S. Equestrian Federation and the U.S. Trotting Association.

Individuals will be mobilized when there is a need for grassroots lobbying. The AHC will provide participants with whatever information is necessary.

“Other Congressional Cavalry activities may include visits with Members of Congress in Washington or back in their home district and invitations to Members of Congress to visit your facility, event or activity,” according to Hickey.

Please contact the equine association you are a member of or join the American Horse Council to become a part of this exciting initiative.
