American Horse Council Welcomes New Director of Communications

WASHINGTON, DC August 16, 2007 - The American Horse Council (AHC) announced today that Sarah A. Chase is joining the AHC staff as the new Director of Communications. Ms. Chase, who was previously in Washington, DC serving as the Director of the Washington Office of a major national consumer group, has recently returned to Washington after briefly serving as the Director of Strategic Planning and Operations for Cross Country International, a New York based world leader in equestrian travel.

Ms. Chase joins the AHC with a broad background in press, media and government relations. While in Washington with the Federation of American Consumers and Travelers (FACT), Ms. Chase created and maintained the million-member association's entire "Eye-on-Washington" program, in addition to serving as director of the office. Ms. Chase, always an avid equestrian herself, returned to the horse industry in March of 2007 as the Director of Strategic Planning and Operations for one of the world's leading equestrian travel companies, Cross-Country International (CCI). While at CCI, Ms. Chase was charged with improving promotions, marketing development and overseas facility relations. Ms. Chase has joined the AHC staff in order to continue to work with the horse industry in a broader advocacy role.

The AHC promotes and protects all horse breeds, disciplines and interests by communicating with Congress, federal agencies, the media and the broader horse industry. The AHC is member supported by approximately 160 organizations and 1,200. Since 1969, the AHC has been promoting and protecting the equine industry by representing its interests in Congress and in federal regulatory agencies on national issues affecting the nation's horse industry.

In her new role, Chase commented, "I'm especially excited to be here at the AHC in order to ensure that the horse industry works together in Washington to accomplish our shared goals of keeping opportunities open for all segments of our nation's broad horse industry and equestrian community. It is my strong belief, as well as that of the AHC's that a strong membership, which is built on consensus and coordinated action, is the best way forward. I am delighted to join the AHC in order to bring members of the horse industry together."

Jay Hickey, President of the American Horse Council, added: "The AHC is delighted to welcome Sarah to our staff. Her strong dynamic and proven talent will enable the AHC to move ahead. We're looking forward to working with her to drive the greater goals of the AHC within Washington and the broader horse community. In addition, we're delighted to welcome an accomplished equestrian to our staff. It's great to have another true horsewoman on the staff who intimately understands all sides of the industry and all of the needs related to the horse world."
