Press Release

Horse Council Directors Attend Meeting

During the weekend of Nov 5-7, several Wisconsin State Horse Council (WSHC) Directors attended a meeting of the State Horse Councils Advisory Committee (SHCAC) of the American Horse Council (AHC). This committee is made up representatives of state horse councils from across the nation. State horse councils are non-profit organizations representing the equine industry within a state. They support and promote the horse and horse-related activities through education and grassroots lobbying on state and local levels. The SHCAC meets once in the fall and once in the spring.



These meetings provide the main networking opportunity between individual state horse councils. They meet to exchange ideas, discuss issues, and benefit from each other’s experiences and successes. While interests vary among the different councils, committees on Recreation, Issues, Marketing, Fairs/Expos, and Communications meet during the weekend to focus on these specific topics. This year the meeting was hosted by the Ohio Horsemen’s Council and was held in Dayton, Ohio.



On Sunday, Jay Hickey of the AHC gave a review of legislative issues that are before our congressional leaders in Washington, DC. He discussed the animal ID issue that is forthcoming. Jay told the group that horses are just one of the livestock groups that are to be included in this project. A national equine task force is in place working on the many elements that may be part of the animal ID program. For example, horses are usually transported in individual units. Other livestock are moved in much larger numbers called “lots.” In addition, horses move often--going to shows, clinics, or trail rides. This movement may have to be tracked.



The AHC is working closely with several agencies in Washington on this issue. The agencies look to the expertise of the AHC to provide the equestrian perspective on how animal ID can be applied to horses. The AHC is also working with other livestock organizations to find the best ways that this can be applied fairly to all livestock.



This fall meeting never disappoints and is always a great networking opportunity. Attendees always return home to Wisconsin with fresh ideas, more knowledge, and a renewed enthusiasm for the work that the WSHC does. More information is available at the WSHC office (608-623-0393).
