American Association of Equine Practitioners Joins Equestrian Land Conservation Resource Partners’ Program
The Equestrian Land Conservation Resource (ELCR) is pleased to announce that American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) is supporting our mission of saving land for horses by becoming an Equestrian Partner, joining an exclusive list of national organizations who have become members. AAEP is the 97th Equestrian Partner as ELCR approaches its 100th member milestone.
The AAEP, based in Lexington, Kentucky, strives to improve the health and welfare of the horse, to further the professional development of its members, and to provide resources and leadership for the benefit of the equine industry. Executive Director David Foley said, “As an organization with members in all facets of the equine industry, the AAEP is pleased to be a supporter of the work being accomplished by the ELCR. Proper stewardship of our land is critical for growth in the recreational horse industry.”
Each of ELCR’s Equestrian Partners has made a spiritual and financial commitment to assist with educating and supporting horsemen on issues of land protection for horses. Our Equestrian Partners recognize that, regardless of breed, discipline or product specialty, the U.S. land development rate of 250 acres per hour jeopardizes the future of equestrian recreation, sport and lifestyle.
