The American Horse Council Wants You!

Join the Congressionally Calvary and make sure the voice of the horse community is heard in Washington!

The American Horse Council continues to expand its grassroots program, the Congressionally Cavalry, but it needs you! In January a new Congress will take office and now is the time to get ready.

The horse community is very diverse and has agricultural, sporting, gaming, entertainment and recreation components. Some national issues affect the entire community and some just a particular segment or discipline. However, it is true that taken as a whole the horse community is a much larger and more powerful constituency than any one of its individual parts. When the horse community speaks with one voice, its diversity is a strength, not a weakness and it is a force to be reckoned with. All segments of the community enjoy the benefits this bring in federal legislation and regulation that keep opportunities open to expand our businesses and enjoy our horses.

All individual horse owners, breeders, veterinarians, trainers, competitors, recreational riders, service providers, or anyone who desires to join the grassroots efforts of the horse community in Washington are encouraged to join the Congressional Cavalry Program.

The Congressional Cavalry is composed of individuals who will contact their federal elected officials when national issues that impact the horse community arise. It works simply. Cavalry members are placed on an email or fax list so they can be contacted and activated quickly. When action is needed the AHC provides each cavalry member with whatever is necessary to productively lobby their elected official including background information, talking points, and sample letters. It is AHC’s goal to eventually have members of the Congressional Cavalry Program from all segments of the horse industry and in every Congressional district. This will guarantee the horse community will be heard loud and clear in Washington.

If you care about the issues that impact the horse community join the Congressional Cavalry! Let’s put more “Horse Power” in Congress!

If you want to sign up, please fill out the attached form and send it back to the American Horse Council via mail, email or fax. If you have any additional questions about the program, please contact Ben Pendergrass of the American Horse Council at 202-296-4031 or bpendergrass@horsecouncil.org.
