The American Horse Council is not government subsidized, nor does it receive any funding through check off programs like some livestock groups.  AHC relies on memberships, contributions, sponsorships and advertising to fund our mission of advocating for the legislative, economic and social interests of the US equine industry.

And we don’t mean to brag – but during the pandemic we’ve stepped up in a BIG way to make certain the equine industry’s needs are heard and met – everything from PPP loan qualification,  SBA loan qualification,  legislation to help shuttered venues, a COVID 19 resource database, a new congressional scorecard so you know which congressional members are helping us and we even produced weekly newsletters.
