The survey also seeks to gather information about the most important issues facing the industry. Please note that the word “horse” refers to all equids (horses, ponies, mules, and donkeys). 

The survey is being conducted for American Horse Publications (AHP). AHP is a nonprofit association that promotes excellence in equine media. Members include equine-related publishing media, professionals, students, organizations and businesses. Dr. C. Jill Stowe is providing consulting services for data collection and analysis to the AHP. Stowe is an associate professor of Agricultural Economics at the University of Kentucky.
