Join APHA in Supporting the American Horse Council and Saddle Up for the Congressional Cavalry

FORT WORTH, Texas—In an effort to better represent and serve the horse industry in Washington, D.C., the American Horse Council (AHC) and the American Paint Horse Association (APHA) are initiating a new direct grassroots effort entitled, “The Congressional Cavalry Program.” You can participate and help to make a difference.

All individual horse owners, breeders, veterinarians, trainers, competitors, recreational riders, service providers and anyone who desires to be involved in grassroots efforts in Washington are encouraged to join the Congressional Cavalry Program. The purpose of the program is to identify at least one member of the American Paint Horse Association in each Congressional District across America who will agree to contact his/her Representative/Senator or other federal officials when asked. AHC is hoping to include individuals from as many of its member organizations as possible to get a cross-section of the horse industry identified in each Congressional district. They will represent their organization and the horse industry when called upon.

Individuals will be mobilized when there is a need for grassroots lobbying. The AHC will provide participants programs with any necessary information. Members of the program will be put on an email, fax or mail list so they can be contacted and activated quickly.

Other Congressional Cavalry activities may include:

§ Visits with members of Congress in Washington or back in the home district.

§ Invitations to members of Congress to visit your facility, event or activity.

§ Regular reports to Congress/staff about your activities “back home,” illustrating the importance of the horse industry to the local economy, sport and recreational life.

If you have any additional questions about the program, please contact the American Horse Council at 202-296-4031 or ahc@horsecouncil.org.

To sign up for the Congressional Cavalry Program please send your name, ranch name or business name, phone number, mailing address, e-mail, congressional representative (if known), along with a list of your involvement in the horse industry to ahc@horsecouncil.org or by mail to:
