"Congressional Ride-In"

The American Horse Council has announced that it will once again coordinate a "Congressional Ride-In" in conjunction with its Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

The annual Congressional Ride-In will occur on Wednesday, June 22.  The Ride-In allows members of the horse community to meet with their elected representatives and their federal officials to discuss important issues affecting them.  All members of the horse community are encouraged to participate, even if you don’t attend the AHC convention.  “The Ride-In puts a face on the $102 billion horse industry and the millions of Americans who are part of it,” said Hickey. “The most effective way to affect Congress is through the voters, the horse people from back home who can tell Congress first hand about the horse industry in their respective states and districts and the issues that impact them.”

The AHC will conduct a free briefing for Ride-In participants.  Anyone wishing to participate in the Ride-In should contact AHC Legislative Director Ben Pendergrass or 202-296-4031.

More information on these Forums and the entire AHC annual meeting, including registration and hotel information can be found on the Events Page on the AHC’s website, or by contacting the AHC.
